Transportation Options at Sage


CDTA BusThe Sage Colleges has partnered with the Capital District Transit Authority (CDTA) in a "green" initiative to provide free CDTA bus transportation throughout the Capital District.

The service area for CDTA includes Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady counties and includes 60 bus routes which go to just about every major employment center, shopping area and recreational site in the Capital Region. The service is safe, efficient and reliable; the employees are professional and friendly; and the buses are modern, clean and comfortable.

The services are for full-time registered/current enrolled students, full-time faculty, and full-time employees only. Valid Sage photo identification cards will be accepted on all CDTA bus routes. Just swipe your ID through the farebox and you're on your way.

For a complete listing of schedules and routes please go to the CDTA website. If you’re interested in sightseeing or planning a trip, use their online trip planner.

We encourage all our students and employees to take a “green” step and ride the bus!
