How Will NJ TRANSIT Handle World Cup Crowds?

To prepare to serve thousands of visitors efficiently, NJ TRANSIT is gearing up for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, the final of which will be played at MetLife Stadium. Acknowledging past criticism of service during past large events such as the 2014 Super Bowl, NJ TRANSIT will implement improved service to the stadium, chiefly a new transit way designed to move 12,000 people per hour from the Secaucus Junction rail stop to MetLife Stadium. Announcement of the forthcoming event and the impending improvements has some calling attention to the mobility needs of everyday riders of the statewide transit agency.
