Jitneys, which are 13-passenger mini-buses, travel the entire city, running from the inlet to Jackson Avenue and the marina area to Pacific Avenue.
Jitneys are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days per year – or even 366 days if it’s a leap year.
The jitney stops are located on the corner of every route and originate one block from the Boardwalk on Pacific Avenue. There are four different jitney routes: No. 1 Pink, No. 2 Blue, No. 3 Green and No. 4 Orange.
The fare for a single ride is $2.00. Frequent rider tickets are available for a discounted rate.
The A.C. Jitney Association and N.J. Transit provide a free shuttle service each way between the Atlantic City Rail Terminal and all casino locations in the city.
History of the Jitney : The Atlantic City Jitney Association started in 1915. It’s the longest non-subsidized transit company in the United States.
The earliest jitneys were horse-drawn wagons. Limousines, station wagons and converted delivery vans (bread boxes) have also supplied jitney services.
Jitneys got their name from the slang phrase for a nickel, the original fare.
Rolling chairs, which are pushed by an attendant, are available from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Rates are charged by the block or amount of time traveled. For one or two passengers, a trip of 0 to 5 blocks starts at $5 and increases from there. A half-hour tour can run $30 and an hour costs around $40. Those rates don’t include tip.
A rolling chair ride on the Boardwalk is a great way to get to a particular destination or to relax and enjoy a scenic tour.
History: The rolling chair was introduced in the 1880s and was the only vehicle permitted on the Boardwalk at the time. It was originally used by disabled visitors. It was once a sign of luxury for vacationers to ride in a rolling chair.
The maximum cost for a taxi ride within city limits for up to five passengers is $11, not including tip.
The easiest way to get a cab is to call a local service or go to a taxi queue outside of a casino, the Convention Center or another popular drop-off point.
