Getting Around Atlantic City: Meetings Edition


Transportation is a big component of every successful meeting. Nobody likes renting a car, but too much walking or long public transit wait times can also turn your attendees sour. Fortunately, Atlantic City hits the sweet spot with its urban density and reliable transit system.

NJ Transit operates the Atlantic City Rail Line between Philadelphia and AC, while Amtrak provides regular service to Atlantic City from Penn Station in New York.

For a different mode of transportation, Atlantic City is served by several national and regional bus lines, including Greyhound, Shoreline Express, NJ Transit and Academy.

If you’re arriving to AC from outside the region, Atlantic City International Airport provides air service, and Philadelphia International Airport is only an hour’s drive away. Both the airport and rail stations provide shuttle service and taxis that will get you to your hotel. So it’s easy to get here, but what about getting around Atlantic City once you’ve arrived?

The best method for getting around Atlantic City may be the Jitney, a local AC transportation system which offers a few efficient routes around town. NJ Transit also operates buses in town and throughout the region. For those who want to take in the sights and sounds of AC at a slower pace (we recommend it), the city is quite walkable. The Atlantic City Convention Center is within a few blocks of great hotels, shops and restaurants and about a mile from the world-famous Boardwalk and beaches.

Traveling to and getting around Atlantic City for your next big meeting or event is easier than you might think. If you have questions about AC transportation, please contact us. We hope you enjoy your stay in AC!
