By 4:30 p.m. Sunday, 27,000 passengers rode trains from Secaucus to MetLife Stadium. That broke the previous record of 22,000 that was set for the U2 concert in 2009.

The trains are back on schedule after some earlier delays.

NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder says all lines but Atlantic City rail were running 20 to 30 minutes behind schedule because of Super Bowl congestion. But the trains were back on track by 4 p.m.

Snyder says the delays were not affecting the rail shuttle between Secaucus and MetLife Stadium because they are loading the cars and going when filled.
