SECAUCUS - Super Bowl weekend has arrived in New Jersey and security around the game is ramping up.
            
The Transportation Security Administration will be screening all bags for explosives at the Secaucus Junction Station before passengers are permitted on the one rail line serving MetLife Stadium. TSA officers also will be using radiological detection devices.

NJ Transit says it will operate Meadowlands Rail Line service from Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction to MetLife Stadium starting at 1:40 p.m. and continuing up to game time, using 10-car multilevel trains to provide additional capacity.

The agency will also operate special shuttle trains between New York Penn Station, Newark Penn Station and Newark Liberty International Airport to Secaucus Junction. 

After the game, the agency says it will offer frequent service from MetLife Stadium to Secaucus Junction as well as extra rail service between New York Penn Station and Secaucus Junction. 
            
Officials anticipate 15,000 passengers will ride trains between the station and the stadium.
            
Passengers are advised to allow extra time because of the screening. Customers boarding trains will also be required to adhere to the NFL’s stadium bag policy.
