    I imagine if you can ride public transportation in NYC then you can handle the Lynx busses. That being said I can only imagine that it's a lengthy process and cumbersome.

    Out of all the options I would rent a car or hire a town car/taxi

    I would think the bus to the Florida Mall might have some not so nice people on there. I know there are some areas around the Mall, which we've been told off for just driving through :unsure: So if the bus goes through these areas on the way to the Mall, then that's probably what Tink meant.

    There are not so nice people everywhere. Ask Alysia about the blind woman on the subway in NYC.

    Car rental is far cheaper but not what Rebecca wants to do.

    I usually Priceline or Hotwire a car. (no funny jokes Tom lol). I don't know if you can do that with being from the UK (I know it's cheaper to arrange your car hire from over there than waiting till you get here)

    Try CarHire3000 we tend to use them now as they are always cheaper.

    There is a link on the right hand side of the forums - cheapest car hire :)

    Just to say, I always use them too since Wendy and slowhand told me about them. The last time I booked, they were cheaper by quite a lot but then a few weeks before we left I stupidly checked again and usrentacar were even cheaper! I emailed carhire3000 and gave them my reservation number and told them about the usrentacar deal. That same day within a couple of hours I received an email saying they'd pricematched the deal.

    So, I'm definitely happy with the service

    I thought I wanted to buy a new Mustang till I rented one in Memphis. It is hard to see out of the back. Now, I rented a Dodge Charger last fall. LOVE that car!!
