The Atlantic City Jitney Association (ACJA) is an association of operators of minibus service in Atlantic City, New Jersey, providing service at all times on 3 fixed routes, daytime service on a fourth fixed route, and bus-to-rail connections from the Atlantic City Rail Terminal, providing connections to Atlantic City Line trains. The jitney service in Atlantic City started in 1915. The type of vehicle used has changed every few years. The classic International Harvester Metro Van was used in the 1960s. In 2010, the service switched to a fleet of bright green and white Ford E-450 vehicles powered by compressed natural gas. In 2012, the association reached an agreement with the advertising firm Blue Outdoor to allow advertising on all of its 190 jitneys, including inside, full side and/or back panels, and full vehicle wraps.
