Meadowlands Rail Service

The Meadowlands Rail Line is the best way to travel to football games and major events at MetLife Stadium. Avoid the hassle and expense of driving, traffic and parking with rail service that is fast and convenient. Take the train to the Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction for a quick 10 minute trip to the stadium.

From Secaucus, trains run express to the Meadowlands Rail Station, located steps away from MetLife Stadium. Service usually begins 3 1/2 hours before stadium events with departures every 10 - 20 minutes, then hourly during events, and every 10 minutes afterwards for 1 - 2 hours after events or until the last scheduled departure. Go to the Meadowlands Service Schedule for event-specific service information. Timetables are usually posted 7 to 10 days in advance of the event.
