ALBANY, NY (January 8, 2020) CDTA will be making a series of changes at the end of January that will add service and frequency to some of its most popular routes, making the route network even more convenient and accessible to the Capital Region.

“CDTA is constantly evaluating its route network to make sure it is efficient, effective and responsive to the needs of the region.” said CDTA CEO Carm Basile. “These changes will provide increased service and frequency to some critical neighborhood routes, two things our customers want and deserve. As we continue to be nimble and adapt to a changing transportation landscape, we want to be attractive to new customers as well.”

The changes feature new weekday and weekend service, frequency enhancements, along with timing adjustments based on increasing ridership trends.
