Mets encourage fans to take mass transit and arrive early to the Subway Series

FLUSHING, N.Y., May 8, 2014 - The New York Mets are encouraging fans to take mass transit to next week's Subway Series on Wednesday, May 14 and Thursday, May 15 at Citi Field. The club is expecting large crowds for both games and recommends fans arrive at the ballpark early.  

The 7 Subway is the fast, convenient, and "green" way to travel to the game. The Mets-Willets Point stop is adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. 

Direct LIRR service to Citi Field is available from Penn Station, Woodside, and all stations on the Port Washington Branch. Those traveling from Long Island or southern Queens on other branches can reach Citi Field by changing trains at Woodside, just a five-minute ride from the ballpark. Fans from NYC or New Jersey can board any Port Washington Branch train at Penn Station, which is just a quick 19 minutes away on the LIRR. Citi Field is just 17 minutes from Great Neck and 27 minutes from Port Washington.

For those coming from the northern suburbs, all Metro-North trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines connect with the 7 Subway.
