Jets Fans Get ‘Hot, Disgusting’ Train Ride for Stadium Opening

Andre Wilkerson has taken the train to every football game in the Meadowlands Sports Complex since New Jersey Transit opened a rail line there last year. It’s never been as overcrowded as it was last night for the New York Jets’ first game at their new stadium, he said.

“I have never seen people not being able to get on trains,” Wilkerson, a 29-year-old Bronx resident who works as a food vendor at games, said as he waited on the platform at Secaucus Junction. “This is not what I expected.”
