Refugee and immigrant programs

CDTA has partnered with the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants and Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany to provide transitional assistance to people new to this country and to encourage transit use. Therefore, participants must live close to a CDTA bus stop.


The goal of the program is to reduce single occupancy vehicle trips among newly arrived immigrant and refugee populations of the Capital Region. The program introduces people to the region’s transit services before they buy a car, encouraging long-term transit use and reducing their likelihood to purchase an older, more polluting vehicle in the long term.


The Transit for Immigrants and Refugees program includes education (transit training) and subsidy (free Navigator card for a maximum of nine months) components. Eligible participants are required to take pre- and post-program surveys about their travel habits and preferences.


Since its inception, the program has already shown signs of leading to increased employment as well as increased attendance at English classes and job preparation workshops. Thus, the program not only increases CDTA ridership but also promotes the self-sufficiency of newly arrived immigrants.

Homeowner Transit Use Incentive Program

To encourage home ownership in transit-supportive neighborhoods, CDTA has partnered with a number of housing assistance organizations:


CDTA provides up to two (2) transit passes per month for up to two years for new homeowners in neighborhoods with existing transit service. The program helps ease the transition to home ownership and encourages people to incorporate transit into their daily routines while they form transportation habits in their new location. Transit supportive neighborhoods are characterized by existing transit service, but also by pedestrian infrastructure and limited parking. Home ownership has been linked to neighborhood stability. Together, they can contribute to environmentally and socially healthy regions

The housing assistance organization determines eligibility and participants are required to participate in program entrance and exit surveys regarding travel behavior. CDTA uses the surveys to monitor program effectiveness and makes modifications for improvement.
