I just cruised into the New Meadowlands Stadium Station, the most accommodating route for travelers heading to the stadium this season.

Sure, the commodious confines of the new stadium are impressive, but the new station has become an astoundingly affordable - $21 round-trip - and quick - 40 minutes - way to skip the turnpike congestion. 

I hopped a 4:07 train at Penn Station, transfered at Secaucus Junction and, 12 minutes I was 100 feet from the East Gate.
