SECAUCUS - Super Bowl XLVIII is a little more than three weeks away and the "Join the Huddle" tour visited a key transportation hub, hoping to build excitement for the big game.

The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee brought the tour to the Secaucus transfer station Wednesday to celebrate with the locals.

Giants fan Martin Nystrom, of Kearny, is in on the fun. "We're the host city so why not come out and support the people coming here and have a good time," he says. "And that's what it's all about."

The huddle attraction allows fans to test out their kicking and throwing skills. Fans can also tackle some practice drills, check out NFL memorabilia and even pose with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Inside the train station, NJ Transit continues to prepare for what's being called the first mass transit Super Bowl.

"There's going to be very limited parking spaces for customers in and around MetLife Stadium," says NJ Transit spokesperson Nancy Snyder. "So the option for many will be the train from Secaucus to MetLife Stadium."

Secaucus will be the only train station providing direct train service to the stadium on game day. NJ Transit expects about 12,000 passengers that day, compared to 8,000 to 10,000 on a normal game day.

Snyder says they've taken steps to handle increased ridership, including extending train platforms and adding bus lanes.
