Rail service suspended

There will be no rail service to Atlantic City this year.

In August, NJ Transit announced that rail service to Atlantic City would be suspended from September 2018 through at least February 2019. Please note that NJ Transit is not planning to increase bus service to levels that would replace the number of seats available on the train.

Bus service to Atlantic City

NJ TRANSIT has express bus service on Bus Route No. 551 between Camden and the Atlantic City Bus Terminal, which is just two

blocks from the Convention Center. Passengers with an Atlantic City/Philadelphia rail ticket or pass may use that ticket on the 551 bus route between Atlantic City and Philadelphia’s Greyhound Terminal located at 10th and Filbert Streets.

You can use your NJ TRANSIT monthly rail pass on NJ Transit buses and the Trenton-Camden River Line. Rail passes are imprinted with a zone number. You can use your rail pass for any light rail trip or for bus trips up to the number of zones imprinted, during the period it is valid. NJ TRANSIT public timetables are subject to change. Check timetables or visit njtransit.com prior to traveling.

Most of NJ TRANSIT’s light rail and bus lines are accessible. Check njtransit.com or call 973- 275-5555 for accessible travel information. If you have a disability that prevents you from using the local fixed bus route, you may request information about Access Link, NJ TRANSIT’s Access Link/ADA paratransit service by calling 800-955-ADA1 (2321).
