N.Y.'s CDTA celebrates 40 years with 40-cent fares

Posted on September 7, 2010

Albany, N.Y.-based Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) is currently celebrating 40 years of service. In honor of this milestone, CDTA will roll back to its original fare on Sept. 16.

 

For this one day, people who use CDTA’s regular route, STAR, and NX Northway Commuter services may ride any bus for just 40 cents.

 

CDTA has served more than half a billion customers on its regular route system since it started in 1970.

 

“We’re proud of our 40 years of service to the Capital Region, delivering innovative transportation solutions while making a strong economical and environmental impact along the way,” said CDTA Chairwoman Denise Figueroa. “To thank our loyal customers and our community for their steadfast support over the years, we are winding back to the original 40-cent fare for this one day only. Moving forward, we will continue to improve, expand and adapt to the changing transportation needs of the Capital Region.”
