Due to continuing Amtrak late night and weekend repair work at Penn Station New York, there will be limited service between Penn Station New York and Secaucus Junction. Be sure to go to our Trip Planner to plan your trip to and from the stadium.


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 begins 3 1/2 hours before stadium events with departures every 10 - 30 minutes, then at least once an hour during events, and every 10 - 30 minutes afterwards for up to 2 hours after events end. Please allow additional travel time for boarding trains following events as wait times vary based on the volume of the attendees and when they depart the stadium. This may affect your timing for connections with other services and arrival at final destinations. Go to the MetLife Stadium Event Schedule for event-specific service information. Timetables are usually posted 7 to 10 days in advance of the event.


Please visit for full details of this new bag policy.
