Superbowl Service

Post by Thomas » Wed Dec 04, 2013 5:05 pm

It is my understanding that PATH will operate every 10 minutes for "Super Sunday." But, I still have two questions:

1. Will PATH trains operate between Hoboken and WTC?

2. How much of the CBTC Installed will be activated (And where will it located)?

I doubt PATH/employees are at liberty to discuss how much of their signal system is completed. Just sit back and enjoy the show...

According to this article, 10,000 to 12,000 are expected to ride to the Meadowlands Station from Secaucus Junction.

I expect more people than that. After all, didn't NJ Transit expect triple the number of riders for the Superbowl event?

Well, more people will take the bus to Metlife Stadium, so that number might not be a bad estimate. Not everyone is taking the train there.

For the game, the host committee will operate a bus fleet called the Fan Express to carry people to and from five sites in Manhattan and four in New Jersey. The buses will cost $51 round trip, and one lane of the Lincoln Tunnel will be dedicated to them.

51 dollars is a rounding error added to the total cost of going to the Big Game*.

According to the NY Times article cited, it's going to be $150 to park. And no tailgating, etc. etc.

My plan is to stay away, and watch the commercials at home on TV as I always do. I understand that some American Football takes place in between the advertising.

*Unless you have paid a fee to the NFL, you're not allowed to use the actual title of the contest which we discussing. So I'm not.

I suspect your I interpretation is incorrect. This is not commercial use.
