NJ Transit to Beyonce concertgoers: Expect delays, crowds
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit says last week’s deadly train crash in Hoboken (HOH’-boh-kehn) is affecting service to Beyonce’s upcoming concert.
It says customers heading to Friday night’s concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford should build in extra time traveling. Overcrowding and delays are possible, and concertgoers also should plan for long wait times after the show.
Customers can use the Coach USA bus from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York as an alternative.
There’s no direct service from Hoboken to the Meadowlands Sports Complex, where the stadium is. Connections must be made in Secaucus (sih-KAW’-kuhs).
The Sept. 29 crash has impacted track and yard space, resulting in less equipment than usual for stadium events.
One person was killed in the crash. More than 100 others were injured.
