the smiley things indicate that I was not actually worrying
my first trip will be for week 2
looks about right for that day
you can probably get the same NJT train out of Penn taking the 10:26 but if you miss that train, you apparently get to the stadium around 12:30
I took a 6:03 out of Penn switched at Secaucus and arrived at the Stadium at 6:35. Left at half-time for a posted 9:00 PM return but the train left at 8:50 PM so they were obviously running more frequently. Same time frame on the return.
one of the two guys I go to games with went last night. He said the train was much better than slogging over two bridges and parking fees from LI.
His only recommendation was to buy your tickets beforehand and avoid the lines buying them at Penn Station on the day of the game
Does anybody know if the bus from Port Authority will still be running? Or does the train service replace it.
I always found the bus to be simple and quick.
This sounds great, but like others have said I only fear the exodus after the game. If they manage the lines properly (make line-cutting by drunk eejits harder to do) it should be cool. I'm planning to use it next game.
That three and a half hour debacle by car after a game is just too unbearable.
Interestingly, you cant buy this ticket for concerts etc., which SUUUUUUUCKS.
Take it for what it is worth, but here is what my cousin had to say about the train after the Giants game tonight:
Do Not take that stupid train ride if you're comin from any where in Jersey. May as well drive! It took 2 hrs and 45 minutes to get from my seat to Edison.
I should have my tickets revoked for asking this, but does anyone know if trains leave from the stadium back to Secaucus during the game? For instance, if one had to leave at half time, could that loser get on a train that's leaving soon? Or would that loser have to wait outside like an idiot for 90 minutes that he could have spent inside watching the rest of the game?
I hope it never comes to this, but there are occasionally uncontrollable circumstances which prevent some folks from being at all of the games. And I'm wondering if this is an option.
I can't find any more info than that, but a friend said he took the bus to the Giants game...351 Bus Service to Jets & Giants Home Games
NJ TRANSIT operates direct bus service (Route No. 351) from the Port Authority Bus Terminal to the Meadowlands for Jets and Giants home games only. Bus service begins 3 hours before the game and continues for up to 90 minutes after. Roundtrip adult fare is $10.
Rail service for major events at Giants Stadium now operates from Hoboken Terminal and Secaucus Junction. Learn more.
Bus service for events at IZOD Center and the Meadowlands Racetrack is provided via Secaucus Junction.
Yeah, NJ Transit's site shows the 351 as still running between the Port Authority and the Meadowlands. In fairness, the previous poster said the "310 or 164 shuttle" weren't running anymore, and I have no idea about those. But it looks like the 351 (bus many took from Port Authority to Meadowlands) is still running according to the site.

New Train Takes Football Fans from NY to Meadowlands
LARCHMONT, N.Y. (AP/1010 WINS) -- It turns out you CAN get there from here -- but it takes a while.
Former Jets wide receiver Wayne Chrebet will help Metro-North Railroad kick off its experimental service to Jets and Giants football games at the Meadowlands.
Chrebet will greet fans in Larchmont, N.Y., on Sunday morning. Then he and the railroad's president will take the train from Westchester County to New Jersey.
The train starts in Connecticut, and also stops in Rye, N.Y.
NJ Transit provides part of the service. The 86-mile run from New Haven to Secaucus, N.J., takes about 2 1/2 hours.
The adult fare is $22.50 from Rye. The fare for children, ages 5 to 11, is $1.50.
2 1/2 hours from Larchmont, lol...that is ridiculous
