CDTA Rate Hikes

CDTA Rate Hikes!!! Yikes!!!

CDTA is raising their fares!!!! A lot!!! They are holding public meetings. We need you to turn out at the hearings and let them know what you think.

Saratoga Public Library
December 1, from 4:30 to 8 pm.

Troy City Council Chamber
December 2, from 4:30 to 8 pm

Albany Public Library

December 4, from 4:30 to 8 pm

Schenectady County Public Library

How much are they raising the rates? Well, here are a couple examples:
The 7 Day Swiper is going from $44 to $65

The Summer Pass is going from $17 to $30

They are going to cut routes, (and that means STAR buses will get cut too)! Tell everyone you know. Put it on flyers. Put it in leaflets. Blog about it.
