BTS fans told to expect delays after MetLife concerts

May 14, 2019

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit is advising fans of the Korean pop group BTS to expect delays of up to two hours if they plan to use mass transit after the group’s concerts at MetLife Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.

The agency says the rail line from the stadium to Secaucus has the operational capacity of approximately 7,500 passengers per hour. Trains will operate every 10 minutes until crowds dissipate. The last train is scheduled to depart from the Meadowlands at 1 a.m.

Buses will supplement rail service after the shows and buses will provide transportation from Secaucus to MetLife before the start of rail service.

NJ Transit was stung in April after WrestleMania fans waited for hours in the rain to get trains from the stadium. No bus service was available.
