For the summer of 2022, Ocean City is launching a pilot program to provide jitney transportation to the Boardwalk and downtown zones.

For a $2 fare, the service will provide convenient transportation to the Ocean City Boardwalk 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

A second route will carry passengers to downtown Asbury Avenue 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The city will use ridership data from summer 2022 to refine the service for the future.

SCHEDULE

The Boardwalk service will launch 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends starting on Friday, May 27. It will continue during those hours on May 28, May 29, June 3, June 4, June 10 and June 11.

  • Boardwalk: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily June 17 through Sept. 5.
  • Downtown: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from June 14 through Aug. 25.

TRACK YOUR RIDE

Download the “Jitney Surfer” app to track the location of approaching jitneys in real time. Future generations of the app will allow for the online purchase of tickets (but that service is currently available only to riders in Atlantic City. Please do not use that function for Ocean City ridership).

An easier way to access “Jitney Surfer” and to provide comprehensive information for everything you need to know about enjoying Ocean City is through the Ocean City Vacation (OCNJ) app. Download Jitney Surfer on AppleDownload Jitney Surfer on Google.
