STAR Easy Guide


Welcome to STAR 

The Capital District Transportation Authority is committed to providing mobility services for everyone in the Capital Region. We are proud to offer a variety of solutions, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), for those who need assistance or special accommodations.


In addition to our fixed route bus service, CDTA offers STAR (Special Transit Available by Request), a paratransit service that provides door to door transportation, on an advance reservation basis, for people with disabilities who are not able to ride an accessible fixed-route bus. STAR is only available in areas where CDTA’s regular fixed-route bus service is provided.


We have designed this handbook as a resource for our STAR riders. If you have questions about the service or anything you read here, please visit or call CDTA’s Call Center at (518) 482 -2022, or (518) 482-9024 (TDD-TTY) Monday through Saturday, 9AM-7PM.
