Getting there

Option 1: Take the subway.

The   train stops at Mets-Willets Point. Follow the signs within the station to Citi Field. 

Fare: $2.90 for most riders.

There is an accessible exit from the Flushing-bound platform that is open on game days only. Exit on the right-hand side of the train and take the ramp.

For Manhattan-bound service, use the ramp and take a Flushing-bound train to Flushing-Main St and remain on the train as it will return to Manhattan.

Option 2: Take the Long Island Rail Road or Metro-North Railroad. 

The Mets-Willets Point Station is on LIRR's Port Washington Branch. Direct train service to Citi Field is available from Penn Station, Grand Central, Woodside, and all stations on the Port Washington Branch. Or, transfer at Woodside from other branches.

On Metro-North, connect to the LIRR or the   at Grand Central. Use the MTA TrainTime app to buy your ticket from a Metro-North station to Mets-Willets Point. For an accessible trip, use the subway from Grand Central. The Mets-Willets Point LIRR station is not accessible.

Take your ticket with you when you exit the train. It will be checked at the station before you can exit.

After the game, trains may be held at Mets-Willets Point to ensure all customers have an opportunity to board. As a result we may not always be able to hold connecting trains at Woodside.

Fare: Plan a trip to see your exact fare. Fans traveling from branches other than the Port Washington Branch who change at Woodside will not need a separate ticket for that part of the journey. Since Mets-Willets Point is located in Fare Zone 1, tickets to Woodside or Penn Station are valid to Mets-Willets Point as well.

Mets-Willets Point is not an accessible station. For an accessible trip, transfer at Woodside for the  subway.

Option 3: Take the bus.

The Q48 bus stops on Roosevelt Avenue, just west of the subway entrance. For more details on the locations of these stops, see our Queens bus schedules, or the Queens bus map
