SECAUCUS - Football fans from all over the world used Secaucus Junction as a primary transportation hub today, as thousands made their way to MetLife Stadium for Super Bowl XLVIII.
TSA officials said that everything moved swiftly throughout the afternoon, with the exception of one train, which had passengers stuck in security for 40 minutes.
They say almost all of the fans taking mass transit followed the NFL’s rules regarding the allowance of only clear plastic bags to be taken with them to the stadium. The league has not allowed fans to bring backpacks to games as an added security measure.
