Blue Line Construction Projects

Project Overview

CDTA's Blue Line first launched in November 2020 providing service connecting downtown Albany with Troy, Cohoes, and Waterford.
Blue Line service runs along two distinct routes, giving customers more options. One route runs from Delaware/Second Avenue in Albany to Cohoes, while the other route goes from Old South Pearl Street in Albany to Waterford. The Blue Line connects to the BRT Red Line serving Route 5 (Central Avenue) and the Purple Line that will operate on the Washington and Western Avenue Corridor. Once complete, the three BRT lines will create a seamless and integrated system that will produce 10 million trips annually.
