No I haven't, but will do a search. Each jitney can carry max of 14ppl [including the driver] That is a LOT of injuriies. I am hoping they are all minor

I was in AC last week. Most of the jitney drivers were good; however, there was one who almost hit pedestrians, slammed on the breaks. It was like a roller coaster ride. As far as the HAET shuttle, it was either full or wait was too long.

Some of those jitney drivers are out of control. They hit those corners like they are on rails. Hope everyone is ok.

I am surprise this hasn’t happened before. One night in early April, I took the jitney from Caesars to Harrahs. The driver drove like a maniac. The vehicle hit the speed bump at the Borgata with such a force, that it was airborne. Several people were thrown out of their seat but thankfully no one was injured. Some of the passengers that were going to Harrahs demanded their money back and got off. When you take the jitney, you are taking your life into your hands.
