Atlantic City's Jitney service is expanding its route just as the summer visitor season begins.
The bus service launched a trial Memorial Day weekend that brings the Jitney service past its usual final stop, then through Ventnor and into Margate. The trial runs through Labor Day weekend.
Both Atlantic City and Margate agree that the expansion will help reduce traffic and alleviate parking concerns, as well as reduce intoxicated driving. Local businesses will also benefit as people now have an efficient way to travel to the city.
Rides will range from $3-$4 and multiple stops along Margate will be available. Depending on the success of the expansion, the service could be repeated on an annual basis.
