Ocean City Tenth Street Station, is located in Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. The station was built in 1898 by the Ocean City Railroad, which was acquired by the Atlantic City Railroad in 1901, and later by the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines. Trains last served the station in August 1981, when service was cancelled due to poor track conditions and limited funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.[3] Tenth Street Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 22, 1984. Now known as the Ocean City Transportation Center, the building is in use as a New Jersey Transit bus station.
