Service will depart from 41st Street outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal
Soccer fans attending tonight’s Brazil versus Colombia soccer game at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands are advised that special bus service to the game will depart from the south side of 41st Street near the intersection of 9th Avenue outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal, beginning at 3:30 p.m. today.
Coach USA will provide the service, using between 20 and 25 buses that can transport up to 3,000 people to the game. Buses will depart from outside the terminal as they fill up.
Fans using the special bus service need not enter the bus terminal since these buses will load outside to help ease the significant increase in passenger traffic at the terminal resulting from Hurricane Sandy.
