trainComing by car? Parking options

Limited, daily and hourly rate parking exists at the Convention Center and at an outdoor lot located between Ohio and Indiana Avenues, but experience has shown that these lots fill early. Save yourself the hassle and plan alternate parking before you leave your house.

Consider parking at one of the Atlantic City hotels from which NJEA runs complimentary shuttles. See details below.

For free parking and a complimentary shuttle to the Convention Center, take Exit 2 off the expressway to Rt. 322/40 South to Atlantic City High School on the right. Free shuttles run between the Convention Center and this lot. Additional parking options can be found on this map.
