The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) has partnered with several Albany organizations to launch the Capital City Trolley. The free service will provide a safe and convenient link between a pair of Albany neighborhoods – Lark Street’s Restaurant & Retail Row and Downtown Albany’s Entertainment District.

“As the Capital Region’s transportation leader, we continually look to improve on and expand services to meet the needs of the communities that we serve,” said Georgie Nugent, CDTA Board Chairwoman. “The Capital City Trolley does just that. It provides a new option to attract customers who may not have experienced CDTA before. We want these new customers to enjoy the convenience of fast and easy transportation for an enjoyable evening in downtown Albany.”

The Capital City Trolley will begin on Thursday, October 25 and operate Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Service will begin at 5:00 p.m. and conclude at 12:30 a.m. with a trolley arriving every 20 minutes. Schenectady-based software and logistics company, Transfinder has enhanced its CityFinder mobile application that allows users to track trolley location and highlights detailed points of interest.

The service will offer convenient stops near key attractions, including the Albany Capital Center, the Times Union Center, the State Capitol, the Palace Theatre, the Corning Riverfront Park, Quackenbush Square, the Riverfront Parking Garage and the Washington Avenue Armory.

CDTA has partnered with the Albany Capital Center, Albany Parking Authority, Albany Police Department, Albany County Sheriff's Department, Discover Albany, Palace Theater, Lark Street BID, Downtown Albany BID, Capitalize Albany Corporation to bring this exciting service to downtown.
