Mets / Willets Point Station

The best way to get to and from a Mets game is by riding the 7 subway or the Port Washington LIRR to Mets-Willets Point. It's fast, convenient and they stop just steps away from the front gate.


For weekday afternoon and all weekend games, there is local service only to the stadium. However, on weekday evening games, the MTA’s 7-diamond express service whisks you from Midtown Manhattan to Flushing in only seven stops. Customers attending night games, including weekends, benefit from a special “super 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. These trains make only the Woodside stop between Mets-Willets Point and Queensboro Plaza, shortening the travel time by nearly 10 minutes compared with local service.

Express service on the 7-train is subject to change based on the MTA’s construction and repair schedules. Always consult for updates on changes to service at the stadium.


The Mets-Willets Point LIRR station is the second stop on all Port Washington lines coming from either Penn Station or Grand Central, after Woodside. 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. See the LIRR section for more information and travel times. All Port Washington and Manhattan-bound trains stop at Mets-Willets Point on gamedays beginning approximately 3.5 hours prior to event start and continuing until approximately 3.5 hours after event ends.
