SPECIAL NOTE: IF AIR, RAIL, OR BUS FACILITIES ARE CLOSED OR SERVICE IS DISRUPTED FOR ANY REASON AFTER SHUTTLE SERVICE HOURS PASSENGERS MUST ARRANGE THEIR OWN TRANSPORTATION such as Northeast Shuttle 518-235-8100 OR neshuttle@gmail.com OR BLACK & WHITE TAXI AT 518-272-6961. SHUTTLE SERVICE MAY ALSO BE CANCELED BASED ON WEATHER & RELATED ROADWAY CONDITIONS.

  • Students can only register for transportation at the 2144 Burdett Avenue Parking and Transportation front desk Monday thru Friday, 8a-4p or by calling 518-276-6616 during the same hours.  Register early as space is limited. The registration sheet is put out approximately 4 weeks in advance of each scheduled service at the Parking and Transportation office.

 

  • Departure times from RPI are every 2 hours from behind (east side) the Mueller Center off 15th Street. Shuttles will depart no later than 5 minutes after scheduled time.  For example: time of 2p-6p means departure occurs at 2:05p, 4:05p, & 6:05p.

 

  • Departure times from travel gateways are every 2 hours. Shuttles stop first at the airport, bus, and then rail. Shuttles will depart no later than 5 minutes after scheduled time. For example return time of 4p-8p means departure occurs from airport at 4p, 6p, & 8p, then 4:25-40p, 625p-40p, and 825-40p, from bus/rail.

 

  • Arrival/Departure at the airport is the CDTA stop next to Southwest Air (not baggage claim).

 

  • Arrival/Departure at the Rensselaer Train Station is the East St bus shelter located outside the main terminal. Buses are not allowed to park next to entrance/exit to rail station.

 

  • Arrival/Departure at the Albany bus station on Hamilton St is outside the front doors.

 

  • Expect 60 minutes of travel time to/from destination as times are approximate depending on traffic, weather, etc…...

 

  • Pack lightly – luggage must be able to fit on your lap while riding the shuttle.
