HUDSON COUNTY -- To commemorate Super Bowl XLVIII – dubbed the first “Mass Transit Super Bowl’’ – the Port Authority this week announced the launch of limited edition Super Bowl PATH SmartLink cards. Only 70,000 of the commemorative cards are available for purchase beginning now. 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 primary transit link between Manhattan, neighboring New Jersey urban communities and suburban commuter railroads,” said Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye. “With the arrival of this year’s Super Bowl, we are prepared and look forward to providing the same safe and reliable service to our visitors and our regular customers.”

“Our facilities are the gateway to the game, and we are ready to welcome visitors from all over the world to our region,” said Port Authority Deputy Executive Director Deborah Gramiccioni. “PATH is a convenient, reliable way to travel between all the events of Super Bowl week, and these commemorative SmartLink cards are a great way to remember the experience.”

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.
