The cost for 2 one way tickets from MetroPark is now $20 ($10 each eay) and $22 from Metuchen and $26 from New Brunswick.
Add in the cost to park of about $5 to park and another $2.25 on the subway each to the stadium and your are looking at about $50 just to get to the stadium for 2 people and almost $30 if you go solo. If you go from Metuchen on Sunday parking is free for now.
The good news is if you have some time you can save a few bucks $3 to $5 per person or so by ONLY taking the NJtransit train to Newark and get off there then hop on the PATH train to NYC and picking up the subway at WTC or at Herald square..
Man is it getting expensive just to get to a game. It looks like a few less trips to the stadium for me this season. Down down from about 8 or 9 to 5 or 6. The cost of tickets isn't the problem, for just about any game you canget a ticket for less than $40 and $20 if you don't care where to sit. As for the good games against the RED SOX or a pitcher of note if you are willing to spend $50 you get in 9 out of 10 times if your not picky.
Anbody have any tips on how to save a few bucks on getting to the stadium?
I don't need tickets I planed on the cost of those. It's the train fare that is taking its toll on my pocket. Just another reason why there is a glut of tickets on the market this season.
