A new partnership between on-demand public transit provider Via and Hampton Jitney will make travel to-and-from the Hamptons easier and more affordable with the launch of flat-rate Via airport transfers and discounted rides to Hampton Jitney stops in Manhattan.

Hampton Jitney riders will be able to book flat-rate shared Via rides between the LaGuardia ($24) or JFK Airports ($29) and the Hampton Jitney Airport Connection in Queens. All local Hampton Jitney riders who book a shared Via ride to-or-from a Manhattan stop will also receive 5% off each ride.

Currently, Hampton Jitney passengers connecting through JFK and LaGuardia airports are required to find their own method of transportation for the first-and-last leg. Often times, ride-hailing prices for these routes fluctuate widely due to surge pricing from other providers, and taxis can be unavailable, creating an additional challenge for travelers. Via will also ensure that pick-up and drop-off points at the Hampton Jitney Airport Connection stop are safe, visible, and convenient for an easy transition.

How it works:

  • During the booking process on the Hampton Jitney website, riders who choose one leg at the Airport Connection stop will have the option to book a flat-rate Via ride.
  • After completing the booking process, riders will receive a Via promo code within their Hampton Jitney email confirmation and a reminder to download the Via app.
  • After landing at JFK/LGA, or when on the Jitney approaching the Airport Connection stop, riders will book their ride with Via and enter the promo code in the “Promo Code” section of the Via app before booking a ride to-or-from two locations.
  • Riders booking a ride to-or-from a Manhattan Jitney stop can enter the code “jitney5” in the “Promo Code” section of the Via app to receive 5% off before booking.
