The Central Passenger Railway Company was incorporated in the state of New Jersey in 1903. One of the company's first lines was an open car trolley that ran along South Carolina Avenue. In 1906, the line was leased to the Atlantic City & Shore Railroad, which was succeeded in 1945 by the Atlantic City Transportation Company.
Streetcars were discontinued in 1955, while bus service continued through 1985 when the company was purchased by New Jersey Transit.
