New Atlantic City Express Train Is ACES!!!

ACES is the new express line between Atlantic City and New York City.

The long awaited and eagerly anticipated new train service between New York City and the Jersey Shore started Friday, February 6, 2009 with the debut of the Atlantic City Express Service, or "ACES" for short.
It's a $25 million effort backed by three casinos, as well as the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.
Now tourists, shore residents and city dwellers will have a faster, cleaner and decidedly more comfortably mode of transport from city to shore.

The first train left Atlantic City just after 10:00 a.m. bound for New York's Penn Station. The return trip departs Manhattan at 2:30 p.m., with one stop in Newark before arriving in Atlantic City.
The service will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $50 one way for regular seats, and $75 for first class.
This will be another big boom for our community as New Yorkers will find it easier to come down for quick weekend getaways and shore home owners will be more inclined to sneak into the "Big Apple" to catch a Broadway show.
Just another good reason to own a home on the Jersey Shore!
