The NFL Super Bowl 2014 is scheduled to be held Feb. 2 at the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. To commemorate the 48th edition of the Super Bowl in American football, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey announced the launch of a limited edition Super Bowl PATH SmartLink card.
Only 70,000 of the commemorative cards will be made available. The limited edition SmartLink Cards are made of durable plastic the size of a credit card and work just like regular SmartLink Cards. They can be loaded with several prepaid trip options as well as daily, weekly and 30-day passes.
Customers have multiple purchasing options – online, from blue SmartLink vending machines in most PATH stations and at several Hudson News locations. The special edition cards, which can be kept as a souvenir of Super Bowl XLVIII, can be re-loaded with additional trips online or at the PATH ticket vending machines.
For more than 50 years, PATH has been the transit link between Manhattan, neighboring New Jersey urban communities and suburban commuter railroads. This year’s Super Bowl is the first in which two U.S. states, New York and New Jersey, will share host duties. The commemorative PATH SmartLink card features the Port Authority’s iconic George Washington Bridge.
The Limited Edition SmartLink cards are available from blue dispensers at the Newark, Journal Square, Newport, Exchange Place, Hoboken, 33rd Street and the World Trade Center stations, as well as select Hudson News locations.

AFC eligible teams are the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers. NFC eligible teams are theSeattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints.
