    Gamblers get a new ride.

    New train service between New York City and the gambling resort started Friday with the debut of the Atlantic City Express Service, or "ACES" for short.

         It's a $25 million effort backed by three casinos, as well as the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.
        
    The first train left Atlantic City just after 10:00 a.m. bound for New York's Penn Station. The return trip departs Manhattan at 2:30 p.m., with one stop in Newark before arriving in Atlantic City.
        
    The service will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $50 one way for regular seats, and $75 for first class.
