MECHANICVILLE, NY (September 16, 2021) CDTA announced the expansion of its FLEX service into the Southern Saratoga County region on Thursday, September 16 at DeCrescente Distributing in Mechanicville. The on-demand, app-based service will cover the Mechanicville, Halfmoon and Clifton Park areas starting September 20.
“We are thrilled to begin our expansion into the Southern Saratoga County,” said Carm Basile, CDTA Chief Executive Officer. “It is our mission to create connections and seamless transportation options throughout the Capital Region. Now with the addition of Mechanicville, Halfmoon and Clifton Park, we have expanded our route network and increased access and opportunity for thousands of residents. Thank you to all of our partners who have helped make this service a reality.”
CDTA first introduced FLEX to the Capital Region in January of 2020 and allows customers to enjoy curb-to-curb service within specified zones by downloading the free TransLoc App and requesting a ride or by calling CDTA. The program currently operates in Colonie, Guilderland, Latham and at the UAlbany Uptown Campus. This service is also offered to Albany Medical Center, Albany International Airport, and University at Albany as part of their Universal Access agreement.
The Southern Saratoga County FLEX service will operate free of charge during the initial pilot period. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are available. The service will operate Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and on the weekends from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. FLEX vehicles undergo the same cleaning and disinfecting processes that all CDTA vehicles do to ensure customer safety and security.
