The long-planned direct train service between New York and Atlantic City is slated to start on Feb. 6, with introductory one-way ticket prices set at $50 for coach seats and $75 for first class.

The weekend-only trips will take about 2 1/2 hours. They are aimed at affluent young New Yorkers who want to avoid the traffic congestion that often delays bus and auto travelers.

Newly remodeled, double-decker cars will carry as many as 300 passengers per four-car train. The trains will feature leather seats, a lounge, and food and beverage kiosks. First-class passengers will get to ride in wider seats on the cars' upper levels, attended by food and drink servers.
