January 28, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Albany & Troy, NY – The Sage Colleges and the Capital District Transit Authority (CDTA) are pleased to announce a newly created partnership and green initiative.

Beginning February 1, all members of the Sage community will be able to ride area CDTA busses free of charge. Students, faculty and staff with a valid Sage identification card can swipe it through the farebox to enjoy the free ride. Not only will this ease the parking congestion on both the RSC and SCA campuses, it will reduce Sage’s carbon footprint.

The service area for CDTA includes Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady. Transportation is available between 60 bus routes, with conveniently located stops throughout the Capital Region. This program will enhance student life, allowing those taking advantage of the program better access to social, cultural and employment opportunities. The service is safe, efficient and reliable; the employees are professional and friendly; and the buses are clean and comfortable.

This is a pilot program for Sage and usage for the Spring 2011 semester will determine its future.
