Travel Information

From Philadelphia International Airport:

Atlantic City is a 1-hour car ride away from Philadelphia International Airport, a main hub for national and international travel.

    Travel via shuttle service: This is the easiest form of transportation while still being affordable (a taxi would cost in excess of $150 for the 64 miles distance). Rapid Rover is an established shuttle service (with a fleet of 7 and 12 passenger vans). There are 4 airport terminals: A, B/C,D,E. Each of these has a Rapid Rover desk, or dial 21 on the courtesy phone and the Rapid Rover dispatcher will place you on the next available shuttle. It is recommended to gather at least 3 people so the cost per ride can be $40 per person. Else it is either $120 (for one person) or $60 each (for two persons) if the van travels with this low occupancy.
Travel via train: This is the most economical solution, but it will take more time. SEPTA has a direct rail line servicing the Philadelphia airport which will take you to the main train station in Philadelphia (30th St. Station). From here you can connect to the NJ Transit express train to Atlantic City. The total fare would be under $15. A wait in the Philadelphia train station can be up to 2 hours, and the train itself takes 1.5 hours. When you arrive in Atlantic city, you can either take a taxi to Bally's Hotel or walk the distance to the location at the Boardwalk near Ceasar's (less than 1 mile).

From Newark and New York City:

    Travel via train: A fairly inexpensive but convenient form of transportation (Friday - Sunday) is the direct "gambler's express" or ACES train, departing from New York City Penn Station and connecting through Newark Penn Station. It takes less than 3 hours to travel to Atlantic City train station. From here you can either take a taxi to Bally's Hotel or walk the distance to the location at the Boardwalk near Ceasar's (less than 1 mile). At other times the Amtrak train serves these locations as well, but it is more expensive and requires a change of trains in Philadelphia.
Travel via bus: This is by far the least expensive mode of travel from NYC. There are various casino bus services departing from New York Port Authority Bus Terminal at 40th and 8th Ave (near Times Square), with the most popular being Academy and Greyhound. They will run you $35 round trip.

New York City Port Authority can be reached from all New York area airports (JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark) using their respective airport bus services. Look for them at your terminal.
