ABCO Helps Finance New Clean Energy Vehicles

01/10/12 - Through a joint venture with the Atlantic City Jitney Association, ABCO has helped jitney association drivers finance new clean energy vehicles. The new fleet of 190 vehicles is clean-running, cost-efficient, domestically-fueled, Compressed Natural Gas-powered jitney shuttle buses. It is reported that the fleet conversion is the largest ever on the East Coast.

The word “jitney” is a slang word for nickel, which is what it cost in 1915 for a ride in one of Atlantic City’s earliest “buses.” Even though the price has increased, the name stuck. The first jitneys looked very similar to regular cars and were, in fact, large, black Ford model-T touring cars which used a rope-and-pulley system to open the back doors. Now you can ride around Atlantic City and even to the airport in a modern eco-friendly vehicle.

The Atlantic City Jitney Association, established in 1915, claims to be the longest running unsubsidized transit company in the United States. ABCO has had a strong relationship with the Jitney Association, its drivers and staff—most of whom are credit union members. We are proud to have helped our members and helped the environment.
