ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) unveiled plans to transform the area into a “21st-century mobility hub” during its annual State of CDTA event on Thursday. The public transportation company’s latest program, DRIVE—an electric vehicle car-sharing program—aims to give locals more options for getting around.

CDTA’s mission is to integrate the car-sharing program into its slate of similar options—CDPHP Cycle!, FLEX On Demand, and SCOOT. Officials said the car-share program of a network of low and zero-emission vehicles would be available 24 hours a day to qualified drivers, seven days a week.

Eligible requirements are:

  • 21 and older
  • Vaild drivers licence
  • Relatively good drivers record
  • Valid credit, debit, or bank card

The State of the CDTA event was meant to highlight the company’s plans for the future. “CDTA emerged out of the pandemic with renewed momentum as we look to the future,” said Board Chairman Jayme Lahut.
