Unfortunately, we don’t have a subway here in the Capital Region. But we get around OK! Here are a few ways to go farther downtown, up to Saratoga, over to Troy, or out to Schenectady – and beyond!
Get this: Saint Rose students ride on CDTA for free almost anywhere! (Exceptions are the Northway Express and STAR Paratransit service.) Just show your student ID to the bus driver, and boom, you’re mobile.
With CDPHP Cycle, rent a bicycle (for $5 an hour) and ride it all around the region — if you can get that far. You’ll find these bike stations throughout the Capital Region. Here’s a list of locations.
We didn’t always have ridesharing here (isn’t that crazy?), but now we do, and we love it. There’s rarely a shortage of cars to call, so this is a super-convenient way to get from A to B.
We have cabs in Albany, too! But not enough to hail, like in New York. You can call a cab to come get you pretty much anywhere if you’re not a rideshare person. Check out the list of best Albany cabs here.
Those are the best ways to get around town — until you find a friend on campus with a car.
