"And provided you're in the boundaries of a single parking space, you'll be able to eat or drink right next to your car.

And it'll all be watched very carefully."
"There will be only three ways for the expected 80,000 ticketholders to get to the game. The committee will charter buses called the Fan Express, which will cost $51 and pick up and drop off passengers at nine locations around the region. Fans can also take N.J. Transit to the MetLife Stadium stop or be dropped off by vehicles that must have parking passes and remain in stadium lots during the game."
