Giants offer free parking, shuttle service
By Matt Ehalt
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants will offer free parking and free shuttle service to and from two locations on Sunday, the team announced Friday. The two locations for the shuttle service are the Secaucus train station and 20 Murray Hill Parkway in Rutherford.
New Jersey Transit will not be running trains to the game Sunday, and the team says there will be very limited cash parking at MetLife Stadium. A bus will run to Port Authority Bus Terminal after the game but that is not a free service.
“Our thoughts are still with the people who have lost so much during this past week,” Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said in a statement. “A football game by comparison is such an insignificant event, but hopefully it will bring some sense of distraction or comfort to those of our fans who have been hurt in any way by this storm."
“We want to thank Governors Christie and Cuomo, and Mayor Bloomberg for their unwavering leadership in dealing with the devastation caused by this storm. And we are very grateful to have the opportunity to host several hundred servicemen and women and first responders at this week’s game. We owe each of them an extraordinary debt for everything that they have done for this region and for our country.”
