BEYONCE CONCERT TO HAVE REDUCED NJ TRANSIT TRAIN SERVICE
Hoboken Terminal service disruption limits MetLife Stadium train capacity
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 6, 2016
NEWARK, NJ — Due to the ongoing service disruption at Hoboken Terminal, NJ TRANSIT is advising customers that there will be reduced capacity on MetLife Stadium trains for tomorrow night’s Beyonce concert.
The accident in Hoboken on September 29th has impacted track and yard space and results in less equipment than the usual complement for stadium events.
Customers may experience overcrowding and possible delays caused by congestion and should plan to build in extra time to travel to MetLife Stadium, and plan for extreme wait times following the concert.
As an alternate, customers can also use the Coach USA 351 bus route from the Port Authority Bus Terminal to the stadium. The Coach USA 351 Express bus to the event will begin loading at 4:00 pm from 41st Street between 8th & 9th Avenue and will run continuously until 8:00 pm. The last bus will depart from the Met Life Stadium 60 minutes after the event ends. Limited seating is available.
Please Note: There is NO direct service from Hoboken to the Meadowlands. Connections must be made in Secaucus.
Customers traveling on NJ TRANSIT trains to the Meadowlands Sports Complex should purchase their round trip tickets from their originating station TO THE MEADOWLANDS SPORTS COMPLEX to avoid delays boarding trains. Tickets purchased on the train will include a $5 surcharge for each ticket.
NJ TRANSIT offers Meadowlands online ticketing option where customers can purchase round-trip adult tickets from their originating station to the Meadowlands Sport Complex. Up to eight tickets may be purchased in one transaction.
NJ TRANSIT MyTix℠ customers can also use the mobile app to conveniently purchase tickets to the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Mobile tickets include a barcode to scan for access through the fare gates. Select Meadowlands as the destination for events at MetLife Stadium. The NJ TRANSIT MyTix℠ app is available free from the App Store℠ and Google Play™.
