Amtrak reported today that it would stop selected Northeast Corridor and Keystone trains at Secaucus Station on Sunday, February 2nd, for the Super Bowl game. At Secaucus, customers will be able to take special shuttle trains operated by New Jersey Transit (NJT) to the Meadowlands Station, adjacent to the stadium. This marks the first time that Amtrak has stopped at Secaucus in revenue service. Amtrak stopped Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s funeral train there for a ceremony, but has never used the stop for a revenue train before.
In addition, Amtrak says that the maintenance program, which normally closes one of the tunnels between New Jersey and New York Penn Station, will be suspended that weekend. That will allow NJT to operate extra trains on Game Day. Amtrak did not say which trains would make the extra stop at Secaucus. Northeast Corridor trains run between Boston and Washington, D.C., and Keystone trains run between New York and Harrisburg, through Philadelphia.
Customers from the Morris & Essex, Gladstone, or Montclair line can take the M&E train bound for New York and get off at Secaucus to change for a shuttle train to the game. These trains normally stop at Secaucus.
