If you're planning to attend a football game, concert or other special event at the Meadowlands, don't forget NJ TRANSIT can take you there.

Rail riders traveling to most major events at MetLife Stadium can take a train to Secaucus Junction and transfer to a Meadowlands train for a 10-minute ride to MetLife Stadium. Rail service before football games begins three-and-a-half hours before the game, operating every 10 to 20 minutes, then hourly service during events, and every 10 minutes for the return trip for at least one hour after the event.

For most smaller events at MetLife Stadium and IZOD Center, follow the signs at Secaucus Junction to ride the No. 353 bus, a 15-minute ride to MetLife Stadium. Buses begin departing Secaucus approximately 90 minutes prior to the start of the event on a load-and-go basis and will continue to operate until up to 30 minutes after the event begins. Buses will pick up and drop off customers at Door C for IZOD Center events and at Lot C near the train station for MetLife events. Returning buses depart the Meadowlands immediately after each event and continue operating up to 30 minutes after the event is over.

Please note that NJ TRANSIT does not operate to all Meadowlands events.
