Re: CDTA Albany County Route Restructuring Phase 2 Partial Unveiled

Last summer, there was a job posting at the NYS Division of Military and Naval Affairs and I could not apply for the job because there was no bus service on Wade Rd.
It is too far to walk there from Rt. 7.
This will make it easier if another job comes up there in the future.
Actually it kind of makes sense that the #90 will no longer go to Troy.
Right now, the #70 and #90 run duplicate routes on the section of Rt. 2 between Latham Farms and Downtown Troy.
In fact, the #90 running to Troy has prevented the increase of service on the #70.
Now that the #70 will be the only bus on Rt. 2, there will be a greater demand for more service.
All that matters to me, is that I can still get between Schenectady and Albany, by taking the #70 and #29. (I personally chose to avoid the #905, #355 and the #1 - I do not like any of the Rt. 5 buses because they are too busy with riff-raff).
With the new changes, I will be taking the #70 from Schenectady to Latham Farms, then transferring to the new #29 (3 digit bus) to get to Downtown Albany.
