NJ Transit pilots special events online ticketing

Posted on August 14, 2012

NJ Transit is making it easier for football fans and concert-goers to get to special events at the Meadowlands Sport Complex. Spectators traveling from New York to MetLife Stadium via the Meadowlands Rail Line can purchase and print special train tickets online in advance from the convenience of their homes.

The agency is offering the Meadowlands online ticketing option as a pilot program to test the functionality of the web ticketing application and evaluate the feasibility of expanding it to include other services. The first phase of the pilot will be in place for the upcoming football season, which begins on August 18 and concludes in January 2013, as well as for other stadium events.

The online ticketing option allows customers to purchase round-trip adult tickets from New York Penn Station to the Meadowlands Sport Complex only. Up to eight tickets may be purchased in one transaction.

Customers will need to have their printed tickets available for a visual inspection by train crews onboard the train between New York Penn Station and Secaucus Junction. In addition, tickets feature a 2D barcode that customers will scan at special readers to pass through the fare gates at Secaucus Junction. Web tickets are valid only for the specific event selected.
