Parking is going to be hard at the Super Bowl as Metlife Stadium braces for an approximate 82,000 spectators to flock to East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Here’s how to find a spot.
If You Must Drive, You Need to Buy a $150 Parking Pass
The stadium itself has multiple clearly marked official stadium parking lots around the stadium. However, because of the Super Bowl’s high profile, every car arriving will need to be X-rayed by Homeland Security agents, and one of the limited parking spots will cost $150. You need to buy a parking pass online and can do so here.
The Preferred Method is Parking Near Public Transit in NJ & NYC
Many fans will be taking the “Fan Express” bus; tickets can be purchased for $51 here. The bus will stop in New Jersey, according to NJ.com, at Harmon Meadows, the Hanover Marriott and Newark Liberty Airport Marriott Hotel. The New York City locations will include Grand Central Terminal, the Waldorf Astoria, Madison Square Park, Time Warner Center, 6th Avenue and Minetta Lane and Battery Place.
You Can Also Take NJ Transit
The New Jersey Transit system is very affordable and easy to navigate. A quick NJ Transit train from New York City’s Penn Station, taken to Secaucus, costs around $5 and takes around 10 to 15 minutes. From there, NJ Transit provides a shuttle train to the Meadowlands. When buying your ticket, be sure your destination is the Meadowlands stop and not just Secaucus.
