"Jitneys" Atlantic City Transportation Tip by sjcherno

If you get to AC early and the sun is out, try going out from your hotel to Pacific Ave. and catch a blue Jitney. They are like $2.00 one way and will bring you anywhere within AC (Not to Ventnor or downbeach or Brigantine and not off the island). If you can get familiar with the system, they are great to take day or night.
In AC, with your car, you are allowed one free transfer - That means if your car is parked at Bally's you can move it to Tropicana without paying the extra cost. Most casinos honor this unless something has changed that I don't know of. On busy weekends though to find parking, it could be tough and since you're probably in AC to kick a few back anyway, it doesn't hurt to get familiar with the jitneys and leave your car where it is.
The routes are color coded as to where the jitney goes, but it may be best to know where each AC casino is located geographically. For instance, the Borgata and Trump Marina is a popular destination, but those are not on the boardwalk and not all jitneys go there.
The only problem with them is that there is only 13-15 seats I think and they get full some weekends pretty quickly. I remember having to walk to the Hilton to get a step up on all of the people waiting to go north from the Tropicana.
If you're in AC late, and get familiar with the system early, it will pay - the taxis usually charge you an arm and a leg. And it's pretty safe for AC.
