AirTrain (the one that goes on the tracks, not AirTran the ones that fly 717/737's) from EWR to Penn station then a combo of either subway/train/bus/cab to LGA.

do a google search for NY transit or for ERW airport it should all be there.

AirTrain from EWR to Penn (one transfer), then find your way to the N train, take that to end of line and then hop on the M60 bus which stops at every LGA terminal...dat be the cheapest.

I think i can beat you on cheapness. You can take the NJ Transit bus (#62) from EWR to Newark Penn Station and transfer to the PATH train. Take the Path to 34th St. and then transfer to the N train to the M60. I'd do it your way, but you never know with Pilots, right? :)

Bus $1.25
PATH $1.75
Subway 2.00 (free transfer to Bus)

That way is good until 34 st Penn Station, but don't take the N train to the M60, that takes WAY too long with way too many stops. Plus the N doesn't even go through Penn Station - it's a couple avenues away.

Get on the E from Penn Station. E is an express train to Jackson Heights, then take the free transfer there to the Q33 bus through Queens. Short bus ride to LGA, and an express subway - can't beat that.

The PATH doesn't stop at Penn Station, but on 34th Street right next to the N and W train. There are though, about a hundred ways to skin this cat.

Is there an easier way that isnt horribly expensive?

I would start out with the AirTrain from EWR to New York Penn Station. ($14)

From here there are a number of choices that depend on your timeframe and budget.

1. Taxi from Penn Station to LGA about 25-30 bucks
2. Express bus from Penn Station to LGA leaves every 30 min for $12
http://www.nyairportservice.com
3. Walk down a couple blocks to catch the N or W to Austoria Blvd. and
catch the M60 to LGA ($2)
4. Grab the A orC train at Penn station and transfer to the M60 at 125th St.
Free tour of Harlem on this one!! ($2)
5. Grab the E train to Jackson Heights to the Q33 bus to LGA ($2)

Depending on how much luggage you're carrying, it can be a pain dragging a suitcase and flight bag through the subway and onto the public bus. Try them all. See which one you like.

as an ewr commuter, ive had to go from lga and jfk to ewr several times....when you arrive at any of these airports, go to the port authority desk in baggage claim and ask to be booked on the next shuttle bus to your destination ...its 21 bucks with your id from jfk-ewr, and 29 from lga-ewr...go to the port authority of ny/nj website and look at the link for airport-airport transfers..you can then get the schedule of when the shuttles depart those aiports. ......if you go between jfk and ewr, theres also the airtrain (costs more..but very reliable...youll take the monorail from ewr-nj transit...then go to penn station ny..then connect to long island rr to jamaica queens to the airtran out to jfk)

Believe it or not, a lot of times when I have to go from LGA to EWR and I have more than 5 hours, I j/s up to BOS and then j/s down to EWR. A lot of times it's faster and there's no hassle with trains and buses, you can sleep on both flights... and it's FREE! sounds crazy but works like a charm.
