CDTA service changes for Albany International Center

Student getting off a CDTA bus at school

CDTA will be changing the buses that serve Albany International Center beginning Monday, Oct. 4. All eligible students still will have access to CDTA buses to get to and from school each day, as well as continued access to the entire CDTA route network using their activated student ID swiper.

The two CDTA routes that will serve AIC beginning Monday are the 106 Uptown Belt and the 100 Mid City Belt. Both buses will pick up and drop off at Livingston Avenue and Lark Street in the morning and afternoon. 

CDTA no longer will operate the two 804 tripper buses serving AIC. The 804 Red route will be discontinued beginning Monday. A shortened version of the 806 Blue route will continue to operate through Friday, Oct. 8. 

106 Uptown Belt
