Why "Navigator?"

  • "Navigator" is the perfect name for CDTA's new fare system because it is symbolic of the Capital Region's history of travel and exploration! After all, Henry Hudson was the original navigator!
  • Navigator signifies the way our new fare system helps you easily travel to your favorite destinations.
