Super Bowl and Related Activities Fill the Region |
Super Bowl XLVIII is just around the corner and the New Jersey/New York region is ready to put on a show. MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands has the unique distinction of hosting the first "Mass Transit Super Bowl" and the first "Outdoor Cold Weather Super Bowl."
The game will be played February 2, 2014, but there's much more happening during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, and NJ TRANSIT can get you to many of those venues. Because we expect increased travel during Super Bowl Week, we want to let our regular customers and visitors know NJ TRANSIT will enhance its bus, rail and light rail service throughout the week. That includes more service on all modes and increased capacity on longer light rail and commuter rail trains. Details can be found at www.njtransit.com, where you can also sign up for MyTransit alerts.
While increased capacity will help, crowding conditions may still exist. As a result, we recommend that you allow for additional travel time during Super Bowl Week and monitor our website or Twitter feeds for service updates.
For our out of town guests, welcome to the region! Among the special events you can travel to on NJ TRANSIT during the week:
- January 28 - Media Day at Prudential Center in Newark (take NJ TRANSIT to Newark Penn Station - walk two blocks to Prudential Center).
- January 29 to February 1 - Super Bowl Boulevard in New York (take NJ TRANSIT to Penn Station New York or Port Authority Bus Terminal and walk a short distance to the event).
- February 2 - Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium (take an NJ TRANSIT train to Secaucus Junction and transfer to a Meadowlands train).
Please note that the Super Bowl is a Level One National Security Event. On Super Bowl Sunday, all customers traveling between Secaucus Junction and MetLife Stadium must display a valid round-trip rail fare to Meadowlands Station and their game ticket. Customers must also adhere to the NFL's Stadium Bag Policy found at www.nflshop.com/All_Clear.
NJ TRANSIT is encouraging its regular customers and visitors to take advantage of its eight-day Super Pass, a $50 pass valid on any of our trains, buses or light rail vehicles between January 27 and February 3, 2014. In addition to big savings, it will give you maximum travel flexibility during the week. Super Pass and round-trip tickets can be purchased at ticket vending machines, ticket windows and on mobile devices.
We also want to make Super Bowl Week a family experience. That's why our Family Super Saver Fare will be valid throughout Super Bowl week, allowing up to two children 11 and younger to travel free with each fare-paying adult. In addition to the activities mentioned, there will be many other events taking place around the region. Use our Trip Planner on njtransit.com to get you there. You'll find NJ TRANSIT Ambassadors in gold "Team Transit" shirts at major stations and terminals during the week to help guide you. You can also interact with us on social media through the week (see more about Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram in this newsletter).
