Super Bowl travelers experience massive delays in Secaucus, N.J.
As fans try to get to the Super Bowl, the train station in Secaucus, N.J. is reportedly a nightmare.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Much of the worry heading into Super Bowl week had to revolve around the logistics of people traveling from New York to here at MetLife Stadium.
And if you're going through Secaucus, N.J. to get to East Rutherford, it sounds like the experience has been brutal.
As recounted by the Star Ledger, thousands of fans are stuck at Secaucus Junction as they're transferring from trains out of New York City to the transportation that would ferry them to the stadium.
The paper said Super Bowl organizers expected between 10,000 and 12,000 people to use the train to get to the stadium while between 30,000-40,000 would use buses.
But those laid over in Secaucus said trains were extraordinarily hot and that paramedics were dispatched to attend to fans who had fainted.
"Worse than a sauna," a fan named Jason Leavitt told the newspaper. "There were people passing out."
Here are some tweets from people who were using that station to get to MetLife.
