Parking at MetLife StadiumThe 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 advanceMany 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 BusAnother 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 parkingThousands 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 parkingMost of New York City's hotels and restaurants do not have on-site parking for guests.
