Atlantic City casinos to reduce NYC train service - Wednesday 9th of December 2009

With winter ridership low, a rail service that carries gamblers between New York City and Atlantic City on weekends will cut back the number of trains it runs from 18 to 11. The change is effective Dec. 18.

The Atlantic City Express Service, or "ACES" for short, began running in February.

Three Atlantic City casinos and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority pay NJ Transit to operate the service under a $3.8 million-a-year contract.

Auggie Cipollini, senior vice president of operations for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, said the casinos will decide in the spring whether to restore the service being cut.

He said ridership was good during the summer but had tailed off since.
