New York Super Bowl 2014 Parking

Parking at MetLife Stadium

The 2014 Super Bowl is scheduled for Feb. 2, 2014, at the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Super Bowl XLVIII will be a game of firsts: The first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl and the first to be jointly hosted by two states: New York and New Jersey. It's also being billed as the first mass-transit Super Bowl, with the NFL discouraging on-site parking at the stadium.

The Super Bowl host committee is expected to encourage fans attending the game or associated festivities including the NFL Experience and Super Bowl Boulevard to use public transportation to the greatest extent possible. Some lots near the stadium are offering tailgating packages that include shuttle transportation on game day, and many fans will use park-and-ride options near New York-New Jersey transit stations.

There are about 24,000 parking spaces in 14 lots surrounding MetLife Stadium and another 5,000 spaces in adjacent lots to the east of the stadium. But only about half of the stadium spaces will be sold to verified ticket holders. (UPDATE: Official NFL-sanctioned stadium parking has sold out as of 1/24. But you can still buy them on the secondary market. Visit our parking reservations page for details)

Reserve 2014 Super Bowl parking in advance

Many fans will opt to reserve Super Bowl parking before the game so they know where they're headed on game day. Spaces near the stadium at last check were going for about $80 for a car and about $200 for a bus or RV. In most cases, that includes a round-trip shuttle to the Secaucus Junction station, which takes you directly to the stadium. Others, including Redd's Restaurant parking, includes a direct shuttle to the stadium. Some lots even allow tailgating, which is not permitted at NFL-sanctioned lots. Prices and availability are subject to change until you reserve a space. Fans can also choose from among lots near New York-New Jersey transit stations, for a convenient game-day experience. 

Catch the Fan Express Bus

Another game-day option is the Fan Express Bus, which will pick up passengers at nine designated locations on Super Bowl Sunday. Pick-up spots include Grand Central Terminal, Battery Place, Madison Square Park, Time Warner Center, Waldorf Astoria and Newark International Airport. Visit our reserved parking page to find a space for your car. Then book your round-trip bus fare here.

Super Bowl Boulevard parking

Thousands of fans will soak up the festive NFL atmosphere without attending the actual game by visiting the popular Super Bowl Boulevard. It's been a hugely popular feature for the last two Super Bowls, and the festivities planned for Midtown Manhattan won't disappoint. But you'll still need a plan for parking and transportation. Our Super Bowl Boulevard parking guide gets you up to speed on reserved parking options and traffic restrictions.

New York City hotel, restaurant and party parking

Most of New York City's hotels and restaurants do not have on-site parking for guests. That means overnight visitors for the Super Bowl will need to find and reserve a parking space. Luckily, there's a one-stop way to shop around for the best overnight parking deal near your hotel. Simply select your hotel and compare your nearest parking options by price and amenities.

New Orleans Super Bowl 2013 Parking

Parking in New Orleans 

Finding a home for your car is always tricky in The Big Easy, but parking can be an even greater headache when the Super Bowl comes to town. Fortunately, New Orleans has been around this block before: The Big Game in 2013 will be the city's 10th as a host city. The biggest piece of advice the locals and big-game veterans can offer: Plan ahead on parking so you can focus on the festivities.

Reserve 2013 Super Bowl parking in advance

If you plan to attend the game or any of the festivities during the week leading up to the big game, your best bet is to reserve a Super Bowl parking spot in advance at one of the city's commercial parking lots. Our parking reservation page shows you what is available, allowing you to compare prices and locations and reserve a space using a credit card. No game-day surprises!

Headed to the NFL Experience or Super Bowl Boulevard?

Do yourself a favor and start with our NFL Experience and Super Bowl Boulevard parking guide. You'll find a map showing the locations for key Super Bowl events, some highlights of two of the most popular attractions and an opportunity to safely book a parking spot in advance at a convenient parking garage or surface lot.

Park at your hotel for the big game

Lucky enough to stay downtown for the Super Bowl XLVII festivities? Chances are you'll opt to arrange your parking with the hotel. Make sure to verify prices and availability in advance. Many hotels have changed their parking protocols for the big game festivities.

Take a chance on street parking

Prefer to soak up the excitement and roll the dice on street parking? Make sure to check the signs around your metered space for rates, time limitations and special restrictions relating to the Super Bowl (More than 3,000 spaces will not allow parking during Super Bowl activities). Pay particular attention so your car doesn't get towed. Most meters cost $1.50 per hour with a two-hour limit. Avoid getting your car towed and facing steep fines by violating street-parking rules. Among the most important to remember: Park within 18 inches of the curb, avoid fire lanes and driveways, move your car on rush hour (7-9 a.m., 4-6 p.m.) on major streets, and make sure not to leave your car in a street space for more than 24 consecutive hours. Get the picture? It's probably wise to bite the bullet and reserve a space.

A great option for locals: public transportation 

The New Orleans Regional Transportation Authority plans to operate extra buses and streetcars for the week prior to the Super Bowl to accommodate added demand. RTA also will offer extra park-and-ride options and a $3 per day unlimited rate from Feb. 1 through Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3. The RTA website is here.
