Parking & Travel to MetLife Stadium for Steelers Game

Fans attending the game are strongly urged to a) carpool and b) arrive early. Because the train station in Secaucus is not in operation, New Jersey Transit is unable to run trains to MetLife Stadium. For a normal Giants game, approximately 9,000 fans take the train from Secaucus to the stadium. The vast majority of those will likely have to drive, increasing the congestion around the stadium. Carpooling and early arrivals can reduce that congestion.

The Giants will offer their fans FREE parking and free shuttle service to and from the stadium at two locations: the parking lot at the Secaucus train station (675 New County Road at Seaview Drive, 4.5 miles from the stadium) and at 20 Murray Hill Parkway in Rutherford.


There will also be very limited cash parking at the MetLife Stadium lots.

In addition, N.J. Transit bus No. 351, the Meadowlands express, will run from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and return after the game. That is not a free service.

“That will service about 2,000 people,” said Bill Squires, a security consultant to the Giants. “We’re hoping to be able to increase that.”

Once they arrive at the stadium, fans will have opportunities to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The Giants-Steelers game already had been designated for the team’s annual Food Drive. The Giants are encouraging those attending Sunday’s game to bring non-perishable food items, which will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

Since 1997, the Giants have hosted an annual food drive to help feed thousands of their neighbors during the holiday season. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, every donation is even more valuable to our neighbors and communities. Thanks to the generosity of Giants fans, nearly 5,000 pounds of canned or non-perishable foods are collected each year.

Each donor on Sunday will be entered into a drawing for the chance to be randomly selected as the “Food Donor of the Game.” The selected donor will also receive an autographed Hakeem Nicks jersey.

A designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, as well as a member of the New Jersey Federation of Food Banks.

The Giants have been working with the state, Red Cross, Salvation Army and many others since before the storm hit. The items they hope to collect on Sunday include Meals In a Can, canned tuna, peanut butter, granola bars, canned fruits, vegetables and soups, shelf stable milk, cereal, diapers and baby goods (no glass jars).

Fans wishing to donate to the American Red Cross will be able to text “Red Cross” to 9-0-9-9-9 to donate $10. They can also call 1-800-RED-CROSS.

As the Giants Salute to Service game, approximately 150 servicemen and women will unfurl the full-field flag prior to the game with General Raymond T. Odierno, the Army Chief of Staff who is a New Jersey native, avid Giants fan and close friend of Tom Coughlin.

The Giants will welcome home Soldiers of the Fighting 69th during this Sunday’s home game.
