St. Peter’s Health Partners Join CDTA’s Universal Access Program



The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) has announced St. Peter’s Health Partners has joined its Universal Access Program, giving all employees at St. Peter's unlimited ridership within CDTA's service network. 

“CDTA is once again excited to partner with a top employer in the Capital Region to provide mobility options for its employees,” said CDTA CEO Carm Basile. “With our extensive route network, St. Peter’s employees will be able to get to work no matter what location they report to. We’re thankful for essential workers in our community, like those at St. Peter’s, and we’re happy they will no longer have to worry about transportation during inclement weather or the cost.”

St. Peter’s Health Partners has more than 11,000 employees in more than 185 locations. Employees can use any of CDTA’s transit services by swiping their CDTA Navigator card. Customers can download CDTA’s Navigator app from the Apple App or Google Play stores. The app provides trip planning, so employees can use the CDTA route network to get to other parts of the Capital Region as well. 

“Working in health care takes a lot of dedication. Our hospitals are always open – on holidays, during snowstorms, overnight and weekends. We are the 24/7 safety net, always here for our patients in their time of need. To meet that Mission, our colleagues need reliable transportation, and for some, that can be an added burden,” said Dr. Steven Hanks, President and CEO, St. Peter’s Health Partners, and St. Joseph’s Health. “We are incredibly proud to partner with CDTA to provide this free Universal Access Pass to our colleagues, giving them transportation options to wherever CDTA goes. We hope it helps alleviate any travel stress our colleagues may have, whether they are traveling to work or throughout the Capital Region. Especially during this season of Thanksgiving, we want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make this possible.”

Currently, more than 40 Capital Region colleges and businesses are part of CDTA’s Universal Access program. For more information about CDTA services, visit, https://www.cdta.org/universal-access
