The Sage Shuttle

The Sage Shuttle takes students and employees between the Troy and Albany campuses to take courses and participate in activities on both campuses.  Riders may be asked to show their Sage ID in order to secure a seat on the shuttle.

The shuttle service runs between campuses each weekday from roughly 7 am to 10 pm and weekends between 10 am and 6 pm with added stops to local shopping malls on Saturday and Sunday. The shuttle stop in Troy is located in front of Wool House on First Street and the stop in Albany is in front of the Administration Building.

It typically takes up to 30 minutes to commute between campuses, so please plan accordingly.  Note that shuttle seating is not guaranteed and students may be required to ride an earlier than preferred shuttle to secure a seat and arrive to class on time.

The shuttle operates during the fall and spring semesters only when classes or final exams are in session.  The Shuttle Schedule is posted at the shuttle stops and online.  Any adjustments to the shuttle schedule will be communicated via Sage email.

Questions or concerns about the shuttle can be directed to the Dean of Students Office in Albany at 518-292-1753 or in Troy at 518-244-2207 or email [email protected].

Public Transportation

The 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 visit the CDTA website.

Questions or concerns about this program can be directed to the Deans of Students Office in Albany at 518-292-1753 or in Troy at 518-244-2207 or email [email protected].

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