NJ TRANSIT TO PROVIDE RAIL SERVICE FOR INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS CUP
July 21, 2017
NEWARK, NJ -- Soccer fans can sit back and ride the rails as NJ TRANSIT will be providing rail shuttle service for the International Champions Cup match between Juventus and FC Barcelona this Saturday, July 22.
Service to MetLife Stadium will begin at 3:30 p.m. from Secaucus. Customers should note that there is no direct service from Hoboken to the Meadowlands. Customers must change trains at Secaucus.
The final Meadowlands-bound train will depart from Secaucus at 6:45 p.m.
Following the game and as a result of Amtrak repair work in Penn Station New York, NJ TRANSIT will not operate shuttle trains between Secaucus and Penn Station New York. Only regular weekend rail service between the stations will be available. Customers may experience some delays due to single-tracking of trains.
Customers are strongly advised to plan ahead and carefully check rail schedules for service from Secaucus to Penn Station New York after the event.
The last train from the Meadowlands Sports Complex will not depart Meadowlands Station any earlier than 10:30 p.m. in the event the game ends early.
Those who will be connecting with trains at Secaucus should check their train schedules and allow for additional time in order to make those connections. For customers traveling from/to Hoboken or New York, please remember that, on weekends, service at Secaucus operates within a period of about 15-20 minutes each hour, followed by a gap in service of approximately 40-45 minutes.
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.
