About MetLife Stadium:

MetLife Stadium made history for being the only NFL stadium to have two teams - the Giants and the Jets. The owners of the two teams used private funds to build MetLife Stadium and it was the most expensive stadium ever built for NFL teams. However, it is only the second biggest stadium.

A variety of tour options are available. Please visit for tour information.

All guests are subject to a screening using a wand upon entry.

Parking & Transportation

Parking Options

You need to buy a parking permit to park at the stadium. Some lots allow tailgating, while others don't. Honestly, the parking situation is confusing, so unless you are a regular or dead set on driving, use public transit.

We're setting up a partnership with a new parking company. Stay tuned for more details!

Bus Service:

If you want to take the bus, you will use the 351bus service at the NYC Port Authority Terminal in the South Wing on the 3rd floor at gates 411, 412, 413, and 414.  Learn more here.

Rail Service:

To use the NJ Transit's rail system to get to the game, you need to get to Secaucus Junction or the Hoboken Terminal. The benefit is that you get dropped off right at the front door of the stadium.

Taxi & Rideshare Service:

To catch a cab, you will have to be picked up between parking lots E and D.

Rideshare pick-up is located in Lot E off of West Peripheral Road.

Closest Major Airport: Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
