New Functionality Allows Customers to Purchase Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) Tickets on

May 31, 2023

NEWARK, NJ In the continuing effort to expand purchasing options while making it easier and more efficient to buy tickets, NJ TRANSIT is introducing a pilot program that will allow customers to buy tickets for travel on the Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) online at This new pilot program begins today, May 31, 2023.

“NJ TRANSIT continues to research and implement new ways to offer additional fare payment options for our customers,said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “This new pilot program will give customers another way to purchase tickets and utilize our services, while expanding our customer base to include those who may not have access to the mobile app and may be more comfortable purchasing tickets through the website.”

“NJ TRANSIT is pleased to launch this pilot program that will make it easier and more convenient for customers to buy tickets for the Atlantic City Rail Line,”  said NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett. “By leveraging technology, we are working to give customers as many options as possible to purchase tickets and passes, and we encourage customers to share their feedback with us as we evaluate its effectiveness and potential expansion to other rail lines.”

NJ TRANSIT rail, light rail and bus tickets can all be purchased through the NJ TRANSIT Mobile App. However, this pilot program expands the option to purchase ACRL tickets directly through the corporation’s website, Customers only need a valid e-mail address and a credit/debit card to purchase tickets from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or even a cell phone with internet access.

Additionally, this program benefits visitors from outside of the region attending events in Atlantic City or Philadelphia – who may not wish to download the NJ TRANSIT Mobile App and set up an account profile for just one trip. Customers can simply visit to buy their tickets and print them before traveling, or bring up the tickets via email on their mobile device and travel with all the convenience of a mobile electronic ticket.

Web ticketing – How It Works?
Interested customers can visit to purchase tickets that will be available for use as soon as the charges are accepted. There is an option to register a name and e-mail address and have it saved for later use, but customers can also purchase a ticket as a guest where entering a name is not required. To buy tickets, simply:

  1. Select your Origin and Destination
  2. Select your number of tickets, click "Next" to review the quantity and price of your ticket(s) before "Checkout".
  3. Login/Create your account OR proceed using Guest Checkout.
  4. Enter your payment information and click "Confirm & Pay"
  5. Get Your Ticket(s) which will be sent to the provided e-mail

This completes the ticket purchasing process. Customers can generate a ticket QR code for their trip and print it out – or show it on a mobile device at the time of travel. As a reminder, at this time, only tickets for the Atlantic City Rail Line are available through this pilot program.

NJ TRANSIT will evaluate the pilot program and determine potential expansion throughout the rail system or other modes of travel.
