NY-NJ area ready for 'mass transit' Super Bowl

Created: 01/23/2014 12:51 PM WHEC.com

As the Super Bowl approaches, organizers are getting ready for what they hope will be a big increase in the number of people using public transportation.

They've already dubbed the game at MetLife Stadium the first "mass transit" Super Bowl. That will depend on whether people leave their cars at home or at their hotel.

New Jersey Transit and PATH rail lines will offer expanded service to accommodate what's expected to be a few hundred thousand visitors during Super Bowl week.

On game day, ticketholders can take trains or buses from six locations in New York City and three in New Jersey operated by the Super Bowl host committee. The bus costs $51 for a roundtrip ticket, and tickets have to be bought by Friday.
