The Super Bowl Committee and transit officials are strongly urging fans to take public transportation to the game.

They announced buses will be available from five locations in the city and three in New Jersey for $51.

Trains will be added on the Port Authority Trans-Hudson line and Long Island Rail Road.

New Jersey Transit expects to carry three times as many fans from its Secaucus station than it does on a normal game day.

"People don't know where they're going, it's a dense area. If you want to party, it's a safe way to get around, it's a reliable way to get around. I think people should put the getting around in the hands of professionals.”

"We are focused on making sure our everyday customers; the men the women the kids who rely on our system everyday are served thoroughly throughout the Super Bowl week."

The committee strongly advises against driving.

More than half of the stadium's 28,000 parking spaces will not be available due to security and television requirements.

A parking pass must be bought in advance.

No tailgating will be allowed.
