General and Premium Parking
The New York Football Giants are excited about playing their games in the state-of-the-art MetLife Stadium. The goal is for all ticket holders to not only enjoy the new stadium but the entire game day experience. This includes the pregame tailgating that the fans have come to enjoy.
The opening of the MetLife Stadium not only enables the Giants to play their home games in the NFL’s very best stadium, it represents a vast improvement in the traffic and parking experience for the ticket holders. New and improved access roads and parking lots will enable fans driving to the stadium to arrive and depart the Meadowlands Sports Complex (Sports Complex) much faster, easier and more efficiently. A tremendous amount of research and effort has been put into creating the new traffic and parking plans. The Giants organization has worked closely with local authorities and consultants to develop a traffic and parking operations plan that will improve the traffic flow into and out of the Sports Complex on game days.
There have been significant improvements made to the infrastructure, external roadways and signage that support the Sports Complex. The most significant improvements have been made to the 16W and 18W interchanges of the New Jersey Turnpike. In addition, the parking lots and roadways at the Sports Complex have been redesigned to improve the flow of traffic as well as the ingress and egress times for ticket holders attending games at the MetLife Stadium.
All game day parking at the Sports Complex for Giants games will be by pre-paid permit parking only. If a ticket holder is operating a vehicle and plans to park at the Sports Complex on game day, he or she must have a permit to do so. Ample parking is available at the Sports Complex, but ticket holders are urged to consider taking mass transit (train or bus) or carpool if possible. This will reduce the demand for parking, improve the ingress and egress for all patrons, and also benefit the environment.
