UAlbany Bus Fleet
The UAlbany Bus Fleet services all of UAlbany's campuses, including the Uptown, Downtown, and East campuses. The fleet also services Freedom Apartments, MSC/UAB, Western Avenue, Madison Avenue, and the Patroon Creek Complex which includes the UAlbany Health Center. There is also a shopping shuttle which runs to Walmart and Price Chopper on Monday and Thursday evenings. Click here for Bus Route Descriptions and Bus Schedules. Through grants provided by NYSERDA, we have upgraded the fleet to include five electric-hybrid buses.

As part of our ongoing attempt to reduce the University's carbon emissions and promote social sustainability, we conducted a transportation study, Understanding Commuter Patterns & Behavior, to help us understand how faculty, staff, and students get to campus. More information is available here.
