ATLANTIC CITY JITNEY INFORMATION


The Atlantic City Jitney 96 Years of Quality Service

imageThe Atlantic City Jitney Association (ACJA) was started way back in 1915. It is the longest running non-subsidized transit company in America.The term jitney is an old English term which means nickel. Around the turn of the century, many Jitney services sprang up throughout the country. When the first Jitney Buses arrived on the streets of Atlantic City in 1947, they were large, black touring cars that used a rope and pulley system to open the back doors.

The latest version of the Jitney used today is a modern luxury thirteen passenger mini-bus.

Currently there are 190 individually owned and operated units which run reliably 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. In addition, the ACJA runs a Bus Shuttle from the Atlantic City Train Station to the various area Casinos. The Drivers of the Atlantic City Jitney Association take great pride in providing safe and affordable transportation to everyone in Atlantic City.

The ACJA serves the needs of the local community as well as the millions of visitors to Atlantic City. They provide convenient, on time transportation to various key points in Atlantic City.

To many, Jitneys continue to be the safest and most dependable transportation service in Atlantic City. Their drivers are experienced professionals with extensive training who maintain their vehicles in excellent condition at all times. These professional drivers have a deep knowledge of providing superior service and are always courteous and eager to provide the service passengers come to expect.

Remember, you haven't experienced Atlantic City unless you visit our Casinos, stroll The Boardwalk, and enjoy a ride on a Jitney!

Bus to Rail Shuttles

imageThe Atlantic City Jitney Association and New Jersey Transit joined together to provide a free shuttle service between the Atlantic City Rail Terminal and all casino locations in Atlantic City.

When you arrive at the rail terminal, use the Kirkman Boulevard exit. In front of the convention center on Kirkman Boulevard there are four bus stops with signage for each of the casinos. The buses depart the train station shortly after each train arrives.

The buses also provide free service for your return trip to the train station. The buses pick up passengers at designated stops at each casino approximately 30 minutes before the departure time for each train. The designated stops are marked "Train Shuttle" and are located at or across the street from where you were dropped off when you arrived.

Estimated travel time between locations is approximately 8 to 15 minutes, depending on your final destinations.

If the normal buses are not operating for whatever reason, the ACJA will substitute one of their Jitneys to provide the service and all other information such as free service, stops, and times will remain the same.
