ACY to Cape May

Does anyone have any experience getting from Atlantic City Airport to Cape May (Ocean City, NJ)? Trying to find a direct/quick and cheap route like a bus shuttle. Only thing I have found so far is a trip into AC for the bus terminal and then a NJ Transit bus to OC or private sedans for $60-200 each way depending on company. Help?!?

Ocean City New Jersey is 25 miles from Cape May city which are you going to? Either way you should rent a car.

Assuming that Tony's assumption is correct and that you are going to Ocean City, a car may be even more desirable.

Ocean City is long and strung out. If you are not staying in the main Boardwalk area you may need a car to get to restaurants, Amusements etc.

In addition, as you probably know. Ocean City is a dry town. No liquor stores, no bars, no alcoholic beverages served in restaurants. No BYOB.

Because of this many of the higher-end restaurants are in Somers Point-across the inlet, where people can have wine with their meals. Somers Point would require a taxi or car from Ocean City

Yes, I am referring to Ocean City, NJ not MD (it appears to me that is what my original post states, but maybe I am not seeing what you all are seeing). Google maps might have me deceived, since it says the trip should only be 20 minutes by car so I thought a shuttle would be feasible. Staying with friends while there so wasn't sure getting a car and then just parking it there for the few days was worthwhile. But it seems that's the general consensus. Thanks!

If you're staying with friends in Ocean City it would be crazy to rent a car and then just leave it parked somewhere. Take the Jitney into Atlantic City's bus terminal then a NJ Transit bus to Ocean City NJ.

Jitney details:

Airport Shuttle

Shuttle from the Atlantic City International Airport to Atlantic City destinations.

For information and times:

Please call 609-344-8642 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Monday - Friday. Please call 609-576-2776 after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends.

NJ Transit info - there are multiple bus routes that go directly from Atlantic City Bus Terminal to Ocean City do not take an itinerary that requires a transfer at the Hamilton Mall.
