Transportation[edit]

Roads and highways[edit]

As of May 2010, the city had a total of 42.57 miles (68.51 km) of roadways, of which 36.93 miles (59.43 km) were maintained by the municipality, 3.15 miles (5.07 km) by Atlantic County and 2.49 miles (4.01 km) by the New Jersey Department of Transportation.[92]

The city is accessible by land via the Garden State Parkway, a major north-south artery which is adjacent to the city and provides access to New York City, and via the Atlantic City Expressway, which is 5 miles (8.0 km) away and leads directly to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Parkway going south connects with the Cape May-Lewes Ferry service, crossing the Delaware Bay to points south. U.S. Route 9 is also available.

Public transportation[edit]

New Jersey Transit offers bus transportation to and from Ocean City and Atlantic City on the 507 and 509 routes.[93][94]

Atlantic City International Airport (approximately 20 miles distant) provides both commuter and regular air travel to major eastern cities and beyond.

Community services[edit]

  • There are only three traffic lights in the city: Central and Oak, Central and New Road, and Poplar and New Road. An additional traffic light lies on the border with Somers Point, at Ocean Heights and New Road.
  • There are at least three points of access to the waters surrounding Linwood. The west end of Hamilton Avenue abuts Patcong Creek, allowing the launching of canoes or kayaks (and possibly trailered boats). An unnamed dirt road just to the east of the Linwood Country Club ends several hundred yards into the marshes, and it may allow launching of trailered boats at low tide (the end of the road tends to submerge at high tide). The eastern end of Seaview Avenue is a better-constructed dirt road that ends at a dock (known as "Seaview Docks" to locals) on Sod Thorofare, and is suitable for trailered boats. A parking permit is required at the Hamilton Avenue and Seaview Avenue sites. Permits are valid for the entire calendar year, though their purchase price varies with time of acquisition:
    • January 1 through March 31: $20 per permit, except for senior citizens 65 years or older, where the fee will be $5 per permit.
    • Permits purchased subsequent to March 31 and prior to Labor Day will be available at a cost of $50 per permit.
    • Permits purchased from Labor Day through December 31 will be available at a cost of $20 per permit.
Up to 450 permits per year are issued, and they can be purchased at the office of the City Clerk.[95]
  • On May 14, 2003, the City Council approved the auction of up to two licenses, citywide, for restaurant service of alcoholic beverages. Package-good sales are not permitted anywhere in the city. This was the first revision to the alcohol-sales-related section of the city code since 1969; it is unclear if sales were permitted prior to that year.[96]
