NJ Transit lengthened its lower platform at the Secaucus train station to accommodate longer trains for the Super Bowl, and will offer trains about every 10 minutes or so on game day, according to Durso. Riders should expect to have their game tickets checked and go through security screening, Durso said.
"It's going to be 'load and go,' where once we bring the trains to capacity we're going to move them out to the Meadowlands," he said.
For motorists, the state Department of Transportation will have an army of machinery and resources at its disposal including plows and salt-spreaders in case of snow, and trucks patrolling roads near MetLife Stadium to clear away accidents or help stranded motorists. Drivers will be directed by numerous electronic signs that can be changed depending on traffic conditions by DOT personnel at a command center central New Jersey.
"It will be very clear how to get to the stadium, what exits to take," DOT spokesman Joseph Dee said. "And there will be a lot of eyes on a lot of camera images, and communications with folks in the field."
