NY Jet Game Parking

    Just received a 7 page booklet on parking for gameday. My hair hurts trying to figure out. Basically all parking is pre paid- no drive up spots. 3 levels of parking - color coded with different entrances for each. Here is synopsis from Jet site:

    Are there changes to the Pre-Paid Parking Permit Program for the 2010 season?

    Yes, there is a new color-coded parking plan for season ticket holders. Based on your seat location, your Pre-Paid Parking Permit will allow you to park in one of the three new color-coded parking areas. The green colored lots are for Club and Suite seat holders, yellow for all PSL seat holders and orange for all Upper Level seat holders. As in past years, you will need a Pre-Paid Parking Permit to park onsite (both on the stadium and arena side).

    In addition, driving to our new home will be faster and easier than ever in 2010"

    More Spaces: Once the demolition of the old stadium is completed in August, there will be over 28,000 parking spaces on site. This is a significant increase over the past three seasons.

    Better Access: The New Jersey Department of Transportation has doubled the number of stacking lanes for roadways entering and exiting the stadium, decreasing congestion points and improving throughput.

    - The parking lots have been newly engineered with both an inner and outer loop road system, creating quicker routes to the green and yellow parking lots.

    - Each parking lot has more curb cuts to allow for easier access to the main road system.

    Expert Management: Central Parking System has been hired to manage the parking operation on gameday. They have extensive experience at managing sports facilities parking. They have been observing the traffic and parking operation at the Meadowlands for the past three seasons and have recommended many of these improvements

    - Following the specific driving routes to your parking areas will increase the ease of reaching the new color-coded parking lots.

    Things to Know:

    - You will need a Pre-Paid Parking Permit to park at the stadium.

    - Satellite parking will no longer be available in Lyndhurst.

    - If it is more convenient, green permit holders may park in any lot, and yellow permit holders may park in yellow or orange lots.

    - Parking lot toll plazas will open 5 hours prior to kickoff.

    - Even with these new improvements, we encourage fans to carpool or take mass transit whenever possible.

    - Please be considerate of your fellow ticket holders and adhere to the one car, one space policy.

    Does it cost extra to park in the "Show Your Tits" section?

    The place will be half empty at the end of the first quarter of their first home game.

    I went to the first pre-season game the Texans had and it was a mess. All prepaid parking & no one knew where they were going.

    This will be just as bad or worse as the people in Texas are more easily herded. New Yorkers & Jersyites will freak out when they're told they can't park where they have for 20 years and can't pay on site.

    BTW, from the useless fact department: In the past, if you got there early enough, parking was free. You just needed to get there before the parking lot attendants did.

    I knew folks who would set up huge tailgate parties. They'd get there early, get a great spot (or several spots), and never pay a dime.

    I would guess for the majority of Jet Season ticket holders that would be 3 trains and minimum 2 hours.

    In my case :

    Train from CT to Grand Central 1 h !5 min

    Subway from Grand Central to Times Square 15 minutes
    Subway from Times Square to Penn Station 10 minutes

    Train to Secacus NJ 20 minutes

    Switch to Jet train in Secacus 20 minutes

    No factor for wait times

    If you live in Manhattan, the Port Authority bus is great.

    It hits the tunnel with no wait and has priority getting into & out of the stadium.

    But, if you're coming from Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut, -- or want to tailgate -- driving (or a car service) is the way to go.

    There's a Metro North Train that runs straight through from CT in-season. Look for the "Train to the Game" listings.

    How the hell does it get from CT to Jersey?

    Must take the Amtrak tracks and go around Manhattan.

    The shuttle takes 15 minutes to get to Times Square?
