Yeah, if you have a car, makes no sense to take the bus. I was born and raised in Manhattan, though, so I've never really driven in my life.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Same here, got my license two years out of college and have driven a total of one time after that.

I do enjoy the option to take naps on the bus though.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

After reading about the Chinatown buses, I'm beginning to feel better about Greyhound! ;-)

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

I am a big fan of the NJ Transit bus as well. Also on time, going back at night there are a lot of empty seats. The AC station is sketchy though, full of homeless, but there are cops in the station. I never had a reason to get there too early. Toms River stop is the only drawback as well as no cash bonus, but it is fine. I don't want to wait 30 minutes to get a bonus anyway when I want to go to Borgata.

How do you get from the bus terminal to Borgata?
Are there cabs waiting? If so... how much is a cab?
Or do you Uber?

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Slightly off topic of busses but, heading down to ac with my dad from NYC and looking for golf course recommendations either in the surrounding ac area or on the way down. As we will be taking the garden state parkway any courses not too far out of the way would work as well

You have 4 options and 3 are really a play maybe even 2

1. Uber. 7-8 bucks
2. Cab 11 bucks
3. Jitney. You walk one block east towards the casinos and take the little green buses (they pass by every 3-5 minutes. , Take the ones that are going north on Pacific avenue (the side of the street the same as the boardwalk ) 2.25
4. 501 bus on Atlantic going north. (Don't do this one ) 1.50

Hopefully someone with more recent experience will chime in. I played at the Brigantine Golf Links many years ago (pre-poker boom), and from what I remember, it was a nice course. Brigantine is the island just over the bridge from the Marina section of AC (Borgata, Harrah's, Golden Nugget).

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Thanks I played there years ago as well and did not like it, it was over a 5 hour round waiting on every hole and no driving range. Looking into McCullough emerald or something like that

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Twisted dunes is nice but a very stern test of golf. I'm a 18 handicap and it's too hard for me. I enjoy the seaview courses much more with the course on the sea side is the course the LPGA plays.
