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.
