CDTA has expanded its FLEX service to the Southern Saratoga County region.
The on-demand, app-based service became available in the Mechanicville, Halfmoon and Clifton Park areas as of Sept. 20.
“It is our mission to create connections and seamless transportation options throughout the Capital Region,” said Carm Basile, CDTA chief executive officer, in a press release. “Now with the addition of Mechanicville Halfmoon and Clifton Park, we have expanded our route network and increased access and opportunity for thousands of residents.”
CDTA first introduced FLEX to the Capital Region in January of 2020 and allows customers to enjoy curb-to-curb service within specified zones by downloading the free TransLoc App and requesting a ride or by calling CDTA.
The program also operates in Colonie, Guilderland, Latham and at the UAlbany Uptown Campus. This service is also offered to Albany Medical Center, Albany International Airport, and University at Albany as part of a Universal Access agreement.
The Southern Saratoga County FLEX service will operate free of charge during the initial pilot period. It operates from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
