You could probably save quite a bit of money if you stopped traveling to Camden six day a week for what you claim is a "job hunt".

And if you read the article fully before you post you would see that it is not only the unemployed bartender who needs the bus:
Fred Mattison of Gibbstown, vice chairman of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen says
"You're not getting any travelers out of Atlantic City in the afternoon, and on the weekends there will be a gap from 9:45 p.m. to 2:45 a.m. You have to allow all (casino) shifts in Atlantic City to be covered," Mattison said.
