For what’s been billed by officials as the “first mass transit Super Bowl,” NJ Transit is offering unlimited weeklong passes for the week leading up to the big game.
Plenty of local events are scheduled for the week before the championship game at MetLife Stadium Feb. 2, but for those who want to check out the official events – Media Day in Newark, or Super Bowl Boulevard in New York City – the transit agency’s “Super Pass” offers discounts your making multiple trips.
After initially offering large, commemorative lanyards for souvenir collectors, NJ Transit expanded the program this week.
For $50, riders will have access to the entire transit system, including trains, light rails and buses, from Jan. 27, the Monday before the game, to Feb. 3, the day after. A weekly rail pass for trips to New York regularly costs $75 and $82.50 from Ridgewood and Glen Rock, respectively.
Passes can be purchased at regular vending machines, ticket windows or the transit services mobile app.
