351 Meadowlands Express Bus Service to be provided by CoachUSA

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Whereas in previous years I believe the Route 351 Meadowlands Express Bus Service was half run by NJ Transit and half contracted out, this year it will be completely run by CoachUSA. The 351 bus takes you from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan to the Meadowlands Sports Complex for major events. It’s $5 each way, exact change required.

And many people love to take this bus to Giants and Jets NFL football games. Sure, some people have defected to the train, but the 351 has its true believers.

As I first posted two week ago, NJT rail service to the Meadowlands will begin on July 26, 2009. New Jersey Transit made the official announcement of this today.

An excerpt:

NJ TRANSIT ANNOUNCES OPENING DATE FOR NEW MEADOWLANDS RAIL SERVICE

Rail service to major Giants Stadium events begins July 26
July 8, 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEWARK, NJ – NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Richard Sarles today announced the official start date for rail service to the Meadowlands Sports Complex, which will provide a new, convenient travel option for customers via Hoboken Terminal or Frank R. Lautenberg Station at Secaucus Junction.

Rail service to major events at Giants Stadium will launch Sunday, July 26, for the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup Final championship soccer match.

“The startup of rail service to the Meadowlands Sports Complex is great news for New Jersey residents because it will be easier than ever to avoid roadway congestion and take our convenient public transportation system to world-class sporting and entertainment events,” said Governor Jon S. Corzine.

Though the official announcement was made today, NJT’s FYI monthly customer newsletter jumped the gun and announced it back in June.
