Discounted CDTA passes available

to some Albany High, Hackett students

ALBANY, N.Y. (Dec. 19, 2011) -- Albany High School and William S. Hackett Middle School students that live within 1.5 miles of their schools now can get a 10 percent discount on CDTA bus passes.

 

The discount would apply on two types of 31-day “swiper” bus passes: one providing unlimited rides on weekdays and one providing unlimited rides seven days a week. Price of the discounted weekday pass is $49.50. Price of the discounted seven-day pass is $58.50.

 

CDTA regularly transports Albany High and Hackett students to and from school if the student lives 1.5 miles or more from school. The new discount would be available to roughly 600 additional Albany High and Hackett students who applied for but were denied free CDTA transportation because they live too close to their schools.

 

To get a discounted student pass, parents or guardians must:

  1. Bring a form of identification of your child (birth certificate, school ID, report card, interim report) to the district Transportation Office between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. The Transportation Office, located at 75 Watervliet Avenue, will issue a voucher once a student’s identification is verified; and

  2. Bring the voucher to the CDTA sales office at 85 Watervliet Avenue, the only place the discounted passes will be sold.

Albany school district employees also are eligible for the discount passes. The process for getting one is the same.

 

For more information, call the district Transportation Office at 475-6170.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and nurture all students to be responsible citizens, critical thinkers and lifelong learners to successfully compete in the global community by providing an academically rigorous and safe environment in partnership with parents, students and the community. The district serves about 8,700 students in 15 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
