New Jersey State Police Unveils New Website for Super Bowl XLVIII

West Trenton, N.J. – Today, the New Jersey State Police, working with the Office of Information Technology, introduces a new Super Bowl state services website.
 
The “Getting to the Game” website is a collaborative effort involving the New Jersey State Police, the Department of Transportation, the Port Authority of NY/NJ, New Jersey Transit and other state public safety and transportation agencies. The website will serve as a location for state government and public transportation agencies to post important information for state residents and out-of- town visitors as New Jersey gears up for the Super Bowl.
 
The website will give users access to an interactive map showing real-time traffic delays in the area of MetLife Stadium. The Port Authority has provided links to information on bridges, tunnels, airports, and PATH subway services. New Jersey Transit has provided links to bus and train schedules, rail maps, and fare information. Real-time weather information for the East Rutherford area is posted. The website also allows local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to post public safety information.
 
Partnering agencies wanted to give visitors to New Jersey and residents a one stop shop for the most important information they would need to get around on the week leading up to the Super Bowl and during game day. The state is expecting thousands of visitors, and this website is the most effective way to communicate to those who are not familiar with the governmental services that New Jersey offers.
 
The website address is www.nj.gov/superbowl.
