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).
