The best way to get to and from a Mets game is by riding the 7 to Mets-Willets Point. It's fast, convenient and the 7 stops just steps away from the front gate.
For weekday afternoon and all weekend games, there is local service only to the stadium. However, for evening games express service whisks you from Midtown Manhattan to Flushing. Customers attending night games, including weekends, benefit from express service back to Manhattan.
Express trains leave Willets Point shortly after the conclusion of each home game and the service runs until about one hour after the game. Express trains are queued outside of Willets Point and arrive on the middle track every six minutes. The travel time between Mets- Willets Point and Queensboro Plaza has also been shortened by about six minutes compared with local service.
