JFK International Airport’s AirTrain service will be partially shut down from September 7 through mid-October.

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) will provide a free bus fleet from the AirTrain’s Jamaica and Howard Beach rail stations to Federal Circle for transfer to buses and terminals.

Customer Care representatives will then help guide travelers to their destinations.

The 10-year-old AirTrain line is set to get a “system-wide overhaul” which will replace track switches, the system’s operational software and train control equipment, according to PANYNJ.

PANYNJ additionally said September is one of the airport’s lighter travel months, and doing the work during this time will ideally minimize any traveler inconvenience.
