The Capital District Transportation Authority's "Bus Plus" initiative got a big boost from a U.S. Senator today.
CDTA rolled out its BusPlus rapid transit service in April 2011 along the Central Avenue corridor, connecting Albany, Colonie, Niskayuna and Schenectady. New York’s senior Senator, Democrat Chuck Schumer, made an appearance at The College of Saint Rose in Albany. Schumer announced the plans to launch two new BusPlus routes.
