This is one of the main questions everyone is asking; "Can I get a taxi to Metlife Stadium on Superbowl Sunday?"  The answer is N. O.  No.  There is one way into Metlife Stadium during Superbowl and only those with parking permits, NJ Transit tickets or Fanbus tickets will be allowed in.

When they say, "No taxis allowed" they mean it.  Not from NYC.   Not from NJ.  Just to be totally specific, this includes the town where the stadium is located and Manhattan also.  Not from CT or PA or DE or anywhere.  No taxis means no taxis.  Only parking permits allowed, which were to be purchased in advance before game day.  You can purchase them, if any are still available, at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites ticket hub.

I hope this clarifies the taxi question.  If it does not, the large police presence at MetLife Stadium on Superbowl Sunday will clarify with very expensive traffic tickets, and quite possibly, a tow.
