Trolleys, Coaches Serve N.J. Facility

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Trade show and meeting planners can arrange for shuttle service to transport their group members from this city's hotels to the convention center and other area points of interest. The program is operated by the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority and features a fleet of trolleys and motorcoaches.

The trolleys, provided by Cape May, N.J.-based Great American Trolley Co. Inc., are trackless, open-air vehicles decorated with brass railings and solid-oak seats. Groups that opt for more conventional motorcoach transportation can choose from the services offered by Academy Bus Tours, Cape Transit Corp., Safety Bus Service, Inc., Shoreline Express Tours and Starr Tours. Additionally, groups will have the option of jitney service provided by the Atlantic City Jitney Association. During the next few months, according to the visitors authority, new jitneys will be added to the existing fleet.

To obtain more details about the new shuttle program, agents and meeting planners can contact the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority at (609) 348-7100; fax (609) 347-6577.
