There was no Lombardi Trophy at stake, but Academy still needed to bring its “A” game to handle transportation services during Super Bowl XLVII – a task that required plenty of planning, patience and hard work.

The Big Game, the first in a cold weather city, descended on the New York/New Jersey area, allowing us to showcase our expertise on our home turf – a task that involved months of planning and took over a week to execute.

“We were fortunate to be selected as a primary vendor by many organizations for the Super Bowl,” noted Academy President Francis Tedesco.  “The event showcased the breadth of our capabilities.”

Academy’s partnerships involved some of the biggest names associated with the game, including our role as the primary transportation provider for the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, airport transfers for NFL sponsors and Super Bowl VIPs, media shuttles and the game day fan express.

On Super Bowl Sunday, Academy had hundreds of buses stationed at MetLife Stadium on behalf of key organizations, including the NFL, Super Bowl Host Committee, Bud Light, Briggs, Fugazy Transportation and SP+ Gameday, just to name a few.  Drivers from most of Academy’s fifteen facilities were called into action to make the event a success.

“From high profile moves to event shuttles, our employees met all the challenges during a very busy week, reinforcing our reputation in the industry and the New York City area,” added Tedesco.
