Hundreds of thousands of BTS fans are heading to MetLife Stadium Sunday evening for the second show of the weekend, making for a potential messy commute.
NJ Transit sent out reminders last week leading up to the shows warning commuters to expect two-hour delays.
After the show, NJ Transit trains will operate from MetLife to Secaucus every 10 minutes until crowds thin out, and then every 15-20 minutes as needed.
Officials are encouraging fans to drive to help those taking public transportation get home sooner.
News 12 asked hardcore BTS fans how they feel about Sunday's messy commute. They say the Korean pop phenomenon is worth the long wait.
