Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:
We are happy to inform you that CDTA bus service will be changing starting Sunday, November 13th. Many Albany County routes will have improved frequency, later night service, and additional Sunday service. We have worked with CDTA to ensure everyone can take advantage of their new neighborhood route system for direct connections to major destinations.
Specific improvements to benefit the UAlbany community include:

Route 12 – Washington Avenue
• Increased frequency as buses will come every 15 minutes
• Access to Super Walmart at Crossgates Commons on every trip
• Increased number of late night trips into Downtown Albany
• Faster service because trips no longer enter Harriman Campus


 Route 114 – Madison / Washington
• Connection between Uptown Campus and Madison Avenue corridor
• Additional service to Crossgates Mall
• Direct connection to CDTA’s Rensselaer Rail Station for Amtrak service

Route 712 – Harriman Campus / Patroon Creek
• Connection between Uptown Campus and Central Avenue corridor
• Another travel option Monday-Friday during peak commuting hours

If you are currently using your school ID card to ride, we encourage you to try the new routes as a cheaper alternative to driving to campus and helping the University reduce our carbon footprint.
For more information please visit CDTA online at or call their customer information center at 482-8822.
Happy riding!
