In a partnership between the State Police, the Department of Transportation, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and NJ Transit, a new website called “Getting to the Game” will help serve as a method to get the latest information surrounding the Super Bowl. The website aims to assist not only game attendees and out of state visitors, but state residents as well.
On the website, users will have access to real-time traffic delays in the areas surrounding MetLife Stadium as well as an interactive map displaying those delays. Information on PATH and subway services as well as bridges, tunnels and airports will be provided by the Port Authority.
NJ Transit will be posting links to its various bus services and train schedules on the website with rail maps and fare information.
Along with all of the updates and information on transportation, real-time weather updates will be available for the East Rutherford, MetLife Stadium area. The State Police, along with local and federal law enforcement agencies, will be posting public safety information for game day.
With Super Bowl XLVIII being the first time the NFL hosts the big game in New Jersey and the first Super Bowl in cold weather, the state is expecting thousands of visitors. With the creation of the new website, state officials view it as an effective way to communicate with game attendees.
The “Getting to the Game” website can be found at www.nj.gov/superbowl.
