New York Area Transit Agencies Prep for Super Bowl Crowd

New York and New Jersey mass-transit agencies will add service, offer special deals and suspend work ahead of the 2014 Super Bowl, the first one that relies largely on public transportation to get fans to and from the stadium.

The Feb. 2 championship game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is projected to bring 400,000 visitors to the New York City region. Seventy percent of the 80,000 game attendees are expected to arrive by train or bus, and more will be visiting the area for events such as the four-day Super Bowl Boulevard celebration in Manhattan, said Al Kelly, head of the National Football League’s host committee.
