If you have Brooklyn Nets Tickets, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of ways to get to the game. With the Barclays Center located in the heart of Brooklyn, you’ll have no trouble finding the place. It’s just a matter of finding what the most sensible option is for you. Let’s take a look at the different ways that you can get to the game…
There are 11 different subway lines, most of which lead directly in front of the arena. The Barclays Center is 10 minutes from Wall Street, and 20 minutes from Penn Station, Grand Central Station and Times Square. The following trains will take you directly to the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center Station: 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q or R. You can also take C to Lafayette Avenue or the G to Fulton Street.
The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) takes you do Atlantic Terminal, located across the street from the arena; trip is about 15 minutes away from Jamaica.

From Staten Island/Queens
Take the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to Exit 27 – Atlantic Avenue.
New York has more taxis than any other city in the United States. They are convenient in the fact that they’ll take you right up to the front door, but the traffic in Brooklyn is always unpredictable. Depending on where you’re taking the cab from in New York, it can probably cost you anywhere from $7-30. The new taxis in New York are also state-of-the-art and you can keep up on your current events and news while in there.
The Barclays Center doesn’t own, operate or have any affiliation to a parking service so you’re on your own with many of the garages in the area. Most of these nearby garages will cost you anywhere from $35-70 to park there for the entirety of the game, and of course even more if you’re going out afterwards.
However, something that we suggest is to find parking on the street in one of the surroundings neighborhoods. It’s a pretty nice area for the most part around Barclays Center, so don’t worry about your car being harmed. You also don’t have to worry about getting towed (unless you park in an area that is clearly marked for NO PARKING). Get there early enough so that you’re not scrambling around the neighborhood looking for parking at the last minute. This is possibly one of the only arenas in professional sports that you can do this at, so take advantage of it while you can.
