Moda is close to the JFK airport and was an easy experience at the garage just to drop off our car. Attendants were very courteous. No trouble at pick up either. My car was in the same condition as when I Ieft it, (i.e., no dings or dents also the car is parked a covered garage. The only problem with this lot is there is no shuttle (but I heard (some) other lots there may be shuttle issues so I didn't want to mess with that). If it is not rush hour (which can be very heavy in that area) you could likely find a cab easily or Uber,. However, because it was rush hour we couldn't (we didn't try Uber) and thought it would take a long time in a cab anyway so decided to use the subway so walked a block or so away to the subway Sutphin Blvd., on the F line. But then one has to change trains after one stop at Briarwood to change to the E train, then 2 stops on the E line to the Air train (the Airtrain is a separate train that shuttles between all airport terminals that starts at Jamaica station (which hooks into the NYC Subway ). We paid $5 each for the subway ride and then using the same Metro card also paid ($2?) for the Airtrain ticket). On the way back it was easier as we literally hopped onto the Airtrain (you pay for the Airtrain after the ride when you return) which took us to Jamaica station. Then took a quick cab ride (cabs waiting outside the Jamaica station) to the Moda lot. (the yellow metered cab driver got us there very quickly despite rush hour (cab Fare was $9.30 with three large cases). So Moda for parking is great and seem a great company (I had no nonsense from them). But remember getting to JFK is a slog in itself (going through Jamaica/Queens etc.) so no matter where you park near the JFK airport it's getting through NY to JFK that is quite a thing. We drove up from Washington D.C.
The lot didn't offer shuttle service but it was fine because it was advertised as not offering service. We took an Uber to the airport, which was fine!!
Because I only had a carry on suite case & a backpack, it was easy to walk to the subway station and connecting to the AirTrain. The parking is a part of a new apartment building, and it's indoor!!!. The area seems safe during the day(I don't know about during the evening). I will come back to MODA parking.
when I took my car fro the LAZ parking (Jamaica, NY), I immediately smelt the odor or cigarette in my car. there was some ash on the back. on top of that ... where are my quarters? hopefully, there was nothing more valuable in the car.
The parking garage was very accessible and easy to get to by public transportation.
I had family driving in before we flew out, so this was a good option for them to park while we were away. Cheaper than the airport. I've taken the Airtrain before, and they already had MetroCards so all that was fine.
