Best Way To Get There?

Hey Y'all. Greetings from South Louisiana! Plan to stay in Philly but make a day trip over to Atlantic City for ATLANTIQUE (Oct.) and need to know the best way to get there (safety being paramount). I am flying and don't want to rent a car and drive. So any sugs on public transportation (places of departure and arrival) will be a GREAT help. Thanks , Merrily

Hi Merrily,

I also go to Atlantique City every show in March & October-it's really the greatest for antiques! The show is also very easy to access without driving, too.

New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City Rail Line runs from Philadelphia's 30th Street Station to Atlantic City. (Amtrak does not serve Atlantic City directly.) The train station is actually located under the same roof as the Atlantic City Convention Center where the "Atlantique City" antique show is held. The fare is $7.25 each way or $14.50 for a round trip. There are 14 round trips on Saturdays & Sundays. Here is a link to the train schedule in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format:


New Jersey Transit also has frequent Route 551 bus service between Philadelphia's Greyhound Terminal @ 10th & Filbert Streets & Atlantic City. (The Atlantic City bus terminal is a few blocks from the Convention Center.) Fare is $12 one way or $22 round trip.

Both lines are very heavily used by casino employees. Also, the rail line has on-board conductors, & both Atlantic City terminals are patrolled by NJ Transit's own police. You should not have to worry about safety!

Check the Atlantique City website for additional show information.


Good luck! You may want to also post your questions on the Atlantic City, NJ forum as well as here.

Take Care! Michael B. :^)
