Chinatown bus to/from AC/NYC?

Is there a Chinatown bus that would go from atlantic city to chinatown in Manhattan? I've heard that there is, but for some reason, I can't find a bus company online that does that. Don't really wanna spend $30 for a one-way through NJ Transit. I'd like to stay under $15 for a one-way bus ride.

I've seen a bus in the bus area with Caesars logo & chinese writing on it, I believe that Caesars operates it themselves. Best bet would be to call Caesars & inquire about it.

Both Greyhound and Academy are around $30 roundtrip and you get $20 of it back as a casino bonus.

there are Chinatown or 'dragon" buses from NYC to AC. Very popular with locals & college students. Exact schedules seem rather changeable so up-to-date details are difficult to find. I believe they advertise heavily in the Chinese press & media. See a wiki link here:

Some do. And a lot of college students use them for the beach or to fish in the poker rooms. Some go for the comps. What else is new?

Most of them stop on Bowery near Confucious Plaza, one block south from Canal Street. i believe the one for Hilton costs $18 and you can get $25 from Hilton plus $20 table game voucher.

Not sure about other casinos. but most of them stop around that area.

Buy a ticket at Division st NYC, it costs $20 round trip + free 50 cash voucher from Bally casino. If you are not going to gamble, some one will trade your cash voucher for 30 at the bus terminal in Atlantic city.
