CDTA, The Downtown Troy Business Improvement District, Announce New Mobility Option for Businesses



The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) will come together with the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District (BID) at CDTA’s Congress Street Station in Troy on Thursday, May 16 at 11:30 a.m. to announce them as a new Universal Access partner.

Employees of businesses that are part of the Downtown Troy BID will have unlimited ridership within CDTA’s service network. Employees can use any of CDTA’s transit services by swiping their CDTA Navigator card. The partnership will provide local, express, and commuter transit service throughout the Capital Region.

Currently, more than 50 Capital Region colleges and businesses are part of CDTA’s Universal Access program. The program reduces travel expenses, stressful commutes, and parking costs. Proving this mobility solution enhances the academic experience and work environment.
