The Jets have two important changes to gameday procedures for fans attending Green & White home games, beginning with Sunday's home opener against the New England Patriots.
For those who in the past have come to the Meadowlands from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, be advised that there is no more Port Authority No. 351 bus service to Jets games.
However, fans can still get to the stadium on mass transit. NJ Transit has replaced the bus with a new rail/bus shuttle service from Penn Station New York and the Sports Complex via Secaucus Junction Rail Station.
Here's how the new service, begun Sept. 4, works:
Customers traveling to the Meadowlands for sporting events, concerts and other major events will board trains at Penn Station New York (PSNY) and transfer at Secaucus to waiting shuttle buses to the Meadowlands. Regular $10 roundtrip tickets will be sold at all PSNY ticket windows and ticket vending machines. For major events, dedicated ticket windows will be available at PSNY for your convenience.
Procedures for taking this service from Penn Station to the Meadowlands before the game and back to PSNY after the game can be found on www.njtransit.com.
Change in Bag Policy
The second announcement involves a change to the Meadowlands bag policy.
Clear Aramark bags containing just-purchased merchandise are permitted in the stadium. However, new for this season, the stadium will no longer hold patrons' bags that are not permitted in the stadium.
Prohibited bags include large bags, backpacks and briefcases.
Any prohibited items that are discovered during inspections at stadium entrances must either be returned to the owner's vehicle or discarded. The stadium will not provide a storage area for these items.
Guests arriving by mass transit must take particular caution not to bring any prohibited items, because no exceptions will be made.
