Thanks for that info, do you know how long that would take? As shuttle said it takes 2 hours?

Take Airtrain to Jamaica Center. Transfer to subway to E train. At Lexington Ave stop, transfer to south bound 6 train and go one stop to Grand Central Station. This will take about an hour. Exit subway and buy ticket on Metro North train to Stamford. That's the New Haven line. If you can get the express, its about 50 minutes.
