For years sports fans have had to put up with the nightmare of driving to The Meadowlands. I’m sure many who wanted to go see the Jets, Giants, & Devils wanted to ride the train to a game. Unfortunately such an option was not available. However now their is some great news for sports fans who would like an easier option to get to The Meadowlands.
On September 5th, the new Meadowlands facility had its grand unveiling. The NY times had a detailed article about the planned 82,000 seat facility. However I will spare you the details of that & focus on the big picture, commuting options! Here is a quick paragraph from the aforementioned NY Times article:
Just outside the stadium is the location for a railway station — which connects the Meadowlands to the Pascack Valley Line of New Jersey Transit — that is expected to be completed in 2009. The addition of the rail station is similar to the plan to bring a Metro-North stop to the new Yankee Stadium.
Just imagine when 2009 rolls around, every major sporting arena in NYC & New Jersey will be next to a commuter railroad station! This is a win-win situation for everybody!
