CDTA and UAlbany Bus Services
University students who are registered for the current semester, and current University employees, can ride all UAlbany Mass Transit bus services by using their 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.
Please note that 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. Also, 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.
