The measure, S-1110, would authorize the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) to finance transportation projects that would link the Atlantic City Airport and city’s tourism district.

“Travelers from outside the area can easily book a flight to the city but getting to and from the casinos and tourism district is another story,” said Polistina (R-2). “Convenient and accessible transportation from the airport would be a boon not only for tourists but the entire Atlantic City community.”

Under current law, the CRDA is required to devote all available assets and revenues to the tourism district and community development in Atlantic City.

Polistina’s bill would authorize the authority to enter into an agreement with the State or New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority to provide for funding of a transportation project.

“Precipitating meaningful transportation advances and making it easier to navigate between important sections of Atlantic City will help address the pressing social and economic needs of city residents and suits the CRDA’s mission to a tee,” Polistina said.
