What bus routes do I have access to with my SUNYCard?

UAlbany Mass Transit services include all UAlbany bus routes and most CDTA bus routes. For more information on bus route and schedules that you can use with your SUNYCard, visit the UAlbany Mass Transit Site

I lost my SUNYCard and replaced it with a new SUNYCard, how soon can I swipe my card to ride the CDTA bus?

If you lose your SUNYCard and replace it with a new SUNYCard, it will take 3 business days for CDTA to update their system with your new SUNYCard magnetic stripe information.  As a result, when you swipe your SUNYCard to ride the CDTA bus, you may be denied from riding until the CDTA system is fully updated. 

When does my access to CDTA bus routes with my SUNYCard expire?

If you are not registered for classes during the current semester or are not a current University employee, you will be denied from riding UAlbany Mass Transit bus routes with your SUNYCard.
