If you’ve kept up with our past updates, you may already know the benefit of taking advantage of our advertising opportunities with the Atlantic City Jitneys. A fleet of 190 vehicles available to wrap in your ad, the jitneys transport 4 million annual passengers, and are seen by over 25 million annual visitors to Atlantic City. Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year; they can be seen transporting passengers to every Casino Property, Rail Terminal, Convention Center, Boardwalk Hall, and the Marina District. But recently, these vehicle wraps are expanding their reach to an even wider audience.
The areas surrounding Atlantic City are starting to see the jitneys pop up as well. According to Shore News Today, Sea Isle City has started running the jitneys beginning last summer. That was only the beginning. Avalon and Stone Harbor have decided to allow the jitneys on their streets starting this summer. Strathmere and North Wildwood are also considering the service.
Mayor Richard Palombo spoke about this new opportunity:
“The merchants are interested in something like 5 to 10 p.m. so people can get to Sea Isle City or vice versa. It can bring in more people to patronize our businesses.”
Cape May County Herald reported on the jitneys connecting Avalon and Stone Harbor’s business districts beginning this summer, after they noticed the success of the service in Sea Isle City. It is expected to offer a low cost transportation option not only between night spots, but a wide range of individuals. This exposure can provide expansive opportunities of what audience our vehicle wraps will now be reaching.
“We’re hoping that it’s a great source of transportation for folks from kids all the way to older folks who are interested in getting from one place to another,” said Avalon Chamber of Commerce President John O’Dea.
Not only will this allow your advertising message to reach more of the surrounding Atlantic City population, but it also offers positive aspects for the community as well. It is thought that the service could help prevent DUIs by offering alternative transportation to driving. Avalon spokesman Scott Wahl also commented that the jitneys are eco-friendly since they run on compressed natural gas and can seat 13 passengers offering an alternative to commuting by car.
With summer just around the corner, and the Atlantic City community and tourists ready to enjoy everything the area has to offer, it’s the perfect time to start making plans of your own. Contact us today and find out how the jitneys can deliver your campaign right through the center of all the excitement.
