N.J. Transit rolls out summer discounts program

Posted on June 26, 2009

NJ Transit is offering package deals and other discounts to a host of summer destinations, including Atlantic City, amusement parks and the beach.

 

“We have put together packages and transit service plans to help New Jerseyans create affordable family adventures without having to travel far from home,” said NJ Transit Executive Director Richard Sarles. “NJ Transit helps put summertime day trips and vacations around the state within easy reach.”

 

Some of the packages offered include a discount on admission to several beaches; saving up to $38 by purchasing round-trip bus transportation and park admission to Six Flags and presenting a bus fare receipt; and free parking at many Atlantic City Rail Line stations.

 

The agency has partnered with several Atlantic City hotels, restaurants and businesses to offer discounts on meals, accommodations, shopping, fishing trips and other attractions.

 

A consortium of Atlantic City hotels and casinos offer deluxe rail service from New York and Newark. For more information, visit www.acestrain.com.

 

NJ Transit also offers express bus service from New York, Newark, Jersey City and Philadelphia to various Jersey Shore destinations, including Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, Island Beach State Park, Atlantic City, Wildwood and Cape May.
