Please review our Travel Guide for plane, train, and bus options.

Does Caesars Hotel offer transportation to and from Atlantic City International Airport (ACY)?

No, the hotel does not offer direct transportation to and from the airport but there are Atlantic City shuttle services available recommended by Caesars that may be of assistance. Please note that the Jitney service to and from Atlantic City Airport has been discontinued. 

Ridesharing with Uber, Lyft, etc. is also recommended and registered attendees will be able to carpool together via Whova. Check out how carpooling would work here. Whova will send out emails to participating attendees a few days before NLC weekend to assist in getting attendees on the app to use the ride sharing platform.
