Though the railway was key to the resort town’s early development, there is no longer a direct train connecting NYC to Atlantic City. Buses to Atlantic City are plentiful and the trip takes about two hours by road. Once in A.C., the Jitney ($2.25; jitneyac.com) is the best way to get around town.

Hampton Luxury Liner says on their Facebook (July 23, 2013): We no longer do runs to Atlantic City, only unless it's a charter with a group. If you need more info, call 631-567-5100 and we will be glad to assist you!

We bought tickets to Tropicana casino from an authorized agent situated on Hylan plaza (Staten Island). For the round trip on Sunday June 30. We departed from the Hylan plaza. On our back trip home, the driver of the Academy bus refused to take us to that plaza. He dropped us on Richmond Rd/ Narrows Rd. He said "he wants us to be removed from bus", even though we said we have no metro card to get home, and our car was left on the Hylan plaza. We cannot understand what kind of "round trip" is that, when you depart from one place and arrived at different without any prior notice. The attitude of the driver was unprofessional, and ridiculous. My husband has high blood pressure, and he felt really bad after all has happened. The bus number was 1839. This trip was on Sunday, June 30. We want to clarify this situation, and understand if we deserved to be treated like that
