How to Ride

It’s easy to ride the jitney with no worries about driving or parking. Here’s everything you need to know.


The Boardwalk service will launch 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the holiday weekend of Friday, May 26, 2023 to Monday, May 29. Service will then resume with daily routes beginning on June 23, 2023.

Boardwalk: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily June 23 through Sept. 4 in 2023.

Jitney fare is $2 one-way payable by cash. Drivers can provide change. Children ages 5 and under ride free.

If you’re heading north, wait on the north side of any intersection to flag down your jitney. If you’re heading south, wait on the south side of any intersection.

Download the “Jitney Surfer” app to track the location of approaching jitneys in real time. Future generations of the app will allow for the online purchase of tickets (but that service is currently available only to riders in Atlantic City … please do not use that function for Ocean City ridership). An easier way to access “Jitney Surfer” and to provide comprehensive information for everything you need to know about enjoying Ocean City is through the Ocean City Vacation (OCNJ) app. Download Jitney Surfer on AppleDownload Jitney Surfer on Google.
