TSA screening set at rail station for Super Bowl
SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) Fans headed to the Super Bowl will have to travel light even to get on a train headed to the game.
The Transportation Security Administration says that fans will not be allowed on the one rail line that serves MetLife Stadium on Sunday unless they show their ticket to the game and demonstrate that they don’t have bags bigger than clutches. They can carry clear plastic bags, too.
The security detail will be set up at Secaucus (sih-KAW’-kuhs) Junction Station, the start of NJ Transit’s 6.8-mile Meadowlands line to the stadium in East Rutherford.
Officials estimate that 12,000 to 15,000 passengers will ride trains between the station and the stadium.
Passengers are advised to allow extra time because of the screening.
