Atlantic City, New Jersey - Trump Taj Mahal Hotel
September 24-26, 2012
SEPTA has a direct rail line servicing the Philadelphia airport which will take you downtown and connect you to the NJ Transit express rail line that quickly gets you to Atlantic City. The total fare would be around $15.
From the airport, take the SEPTA Regional Rail Line (entrance on pedestrian bridges and commercial roadway) $7.00 one-way to 30th Street Station (Amtrak). New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City line runs from 30th Street Station to AC, so you can catch the train at 30th Street Station. The train also makes local stops through Cherry Hill, Lindenwold, etc. The fare is $10.
Once you arrive at the Atlantic City Train terminal, there are free shuttles to all casinos. Use the Kirkman Boulevard exit [follow the crowd] and each shuttle has signage for which casinos they go to. The shuttles depart quickly, so it's best not to linger or use the restroom in the Train Terminal as the shuttles will depart without you. BTW, there is a restroom on the train. The return shuttle is free as well. Ask the shuttle driver and/or the hotel front desk for pickup times and waiting area. It's usually 30 minutes before train departure at the spot the shuttle drops you off, but not always so please be sure to ask.
Another option is to take the PATCO Speedline to Lindenwold and connect to the AC line. This has become a popular choice among weekenders and commuters from Philly to AC. The Speedline runs from 16th and Locust to Lindenwold where you can transfer to the NJ Transit AC line.
If you do decide to use these 2 trains, please be aware that each train has a different ticketing system as they are different agencies, so buy your train tickets accordingly.
Airport Shuttle & Limo Service
The prices charged by the companies that offer shuttles are often a much better value than the prices charged by car service and limousine companies. A list of companies providing this service can be found at:

The easiest and quickest way to get to Atlantic City is by car. From Center City, take the Walt Whitman Bridge to the Atlantic City Expressway (NJ 42-S). The drive is about 1 hour. From PHL airport: Take I95 North to the Walt Whitman Bridge. The only tricky part might be finding exit 19 [Walt Whitman Bridge] on I95N from PHL. The exit lane appears without a sign and the actual overhead sign for exit 19 is near where the exit lane splits off of I95. Just be sure to get in the right lane after exit 17 [Broad Street exit,] and once you see a 4th lane on your right [this is the exit lane], get over. If you wait for the overhead signage, you may be too late. Bear right at the fork as you go downhill on the exit & it will take you to the right bridge. Once you get over the Walt Whitman Bridge, you stay on that highway & you only need to be sure not to be in the far right lane & you'll get to AC. Atlantic City Expressway dead-ends right in the heart of Atlantic City. Straight ahead are Caesars and Trump Plaza. Boardwalk Hall, Tropicana and Atlantic Club are to the right (south); all other casinos are to the left (north).
If you don't have a car, see options below for train/bus transit.
Take the NJ Transit 551 bus from the Greyhound Terminal in Philadelphia (10th and Filbert), costs $16.50 one way, direct into Atlantic City Bus Terminal, just a couple of blocks from the nearest casinos.trip. Greyhound buses also run from the Greyhound Terminal and are $12 (standard fare) or $16 (refundable fare) one way, also going direct to Atlantic City Bus Terminal. (All buses stop in Camden and Sicklerville while some also stop at the Farley service Plaza.)
Once in Atlantic City, you can get around by Jitney (they run every few minutes on Pacific Avenue, some go to the marina area), NJ Transit bus (at the bus terminal and along Atlantic Avenue, see NJtransit.com for schedules), taxi (available almost everywhere) or walk to most locations.
