Through grants provided by NYSERDA, UAlbany has upgraded the fleet to include five electric-hybrid buses.

In fall 2013, the UAlbany bus service became more convenient for riders to arrive at their destination. Each campus bus is now outfitted with a GPS tracker, so you can anticipate if your ride is running ahead or behind schedule. The real time route info is available online. To access the website, you can use your smartphone and scan the QR code located at UAlbany bus stops or download the app for android or iphone. Several screens across campus also display the information.
