Atlantic City Rail Line Suspended Until Early 2019

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

New Jersey Transit announced that starting in September they are suspending train service on the Atlantic City Rail Line.

NJ Transit says the move is temporary and needs to be done to help the Public Transportation Authority continue their installation of positive train control equipment on its entire rail fleet.

The Atlantic City Rail Line is to be shut down on September 4th and service is anticipated to resume in early 2019.

During that time period, AC Rail Line tickets and passes will be discounted 25-percent and will be cross-honored on certain New Jersey Transit bus routes, PATCO lines, and the NJ Transit River Line. A special shuttle bus service will operate between Cherry Hill, Pennsauken, and the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden.

Customers will not be able to use the Atlantic City Rail Terminal but should utilize the Atlantic City Bus Terminal instead.
