New Express Train From NYC To Atlantic City Introduced By Three Casinos

Feather News

Three Atlantic City casinos - Caesars, Borgata and Harrah's - are betting that a new express train from New York City to Atlantic City will bring more high rollers to their casinos.

The Atlantic City Express Service or ACES did a test run last Friday and will begin its first public trip beginning this weekend.

For a $50 one-way ticket (or $75 first-class), riders will ride on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor line from New York and then onto New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City line, with only one stop in Newark, N.J. The train will run from Fridays through Sundays and take just under three hours per trip.
