    Use mass transit to make your trip to the venue convenient and cost-effective.

    The 7 train provides easy service from the Grand Central Terminal to Mets-Willets Point Station, including connections for all Metro-North Trains from Westchester and Connecticut. Service is also available from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Shuttle buses will be provided between Mets-Willets Point Station and the venue before and after the ceremony. 

    The MTA website provides complete schedules and information about the most convenient ways to get the venue.

    By Long Island Rail Road

    LIRR provides service to Mets-Willets Point Station from Woodside, and convenient connections from Penn Station for New Jersey Transit customers. For guests with disabilities, get off the LIRR train at 61st/Woodside Station and transfer to the 7 train. Take the 7 train to Mets-Willets Point Station.

    By Taxi/Rideshare

    We strongly encourage the use of mass transit. It is easy, safe, low cost, and environmentally sustainable. Taking the subway is faster than driving to the stadium from most parts of New York City.
