I will probably go by train? I’m not local though so have no idea which is best. I guess with the bus there is the potential for traffic.

Either bus or train from Manhattan to Metlife Stadium should be quick and easy.

It's a toss-up...
MetLife stadium is close to Manhattan, so a bit of rush hour traffic on a weekday is typical and won't make much difference. Actually, rush hour traffic volume is much less during summer months.

The potential problems with either mode of mass transit is hard to predict: Equipment breaking down, roadway collision... scheduling screw ups, weather conditions.

I prefer the bus over the train especially when the show is over.
The line or que for the train is ridculous after the show.
Buses move more quickly.

I sent a couple emails to MetLife and CoachUSA at various email addresses on their websites about this.

I received this reply from a rep at MetLife on On Jul 20, 2019, at 1:27 PM:

"Coach USA generally makes tickets available about a week before each event but we will certainly share your note with them and our team.
We look forward to hosting you soon.
Thank you,

and this from a rep at MetLife on 7-26-2019 at 3:33 p.m.:

"Stones to be up tonight.
We don't control their timing, but it will be up."

But so far ... Nothing on the website, as you noted

Wild ride got me to this one! Originally bought a pair for the first June 13th date when they went on sale in November. The week before Christmas we find out after so many years of trying we are going to be blessed with a child!! So I'm super psyched that I will technically be taking my boy (found out the gender in late Feb) to a Stones show and I'm over the moon excited! Then boom,the bad news about Jagger's health comes and the the tour delay so I begrudgingly cancel the pair of tixx and get my 900$ plus back figuring it's the responsible move. Not only can we use the dough but more importantly the rescheduled date is a little too close to the baby's due date (Aug 26). Finally with my wife's blessing I buy one ticket this morning on TM for about 249$(pre rip-off fees) and now I'm so excited for Thursday night. I might be a little lonely , rolling solo but I will have my wife and my soon to be born baby in my heart to keep me company. Of course I will be peeking at my cell every song and a half just in case I have to hightail it outta there and get to the hospital! So I'm not too worried about the setlist or any potential Keef flubs...I just feel so happy and blessed to see my Stones live one more time!...and who knows maybe 6 or 7 years from now I will really end up taking my boy to a Stones show!!!

Hi everyone,

Sorry I am not familiar with NY/NJ public transport... So in order to get to MetLife Stadium, do I have to purchase tickets (in advance or at the station?) or does the NY Metro Card take me all the way to the stadium?

Thanks for your help!

The reason I asked was because I have seen tickets on ticketmaster that were $ 400 + on CL for $ 150

Hi there,
We are travelling from Europe to see the Stones in New Jersey. We booked a hotel near Times Square. What is the best way to get to the Stadium? Train? Metro? Uber?
Is there someone who can help us out? Thanks.

I believe that NJ Transit local buses do not stop in the stadium complex on event days.
Suggest #351 CoachUSA listed above.
