ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Capital District Transportation Authority is partnering with the Albany Parking Authority to provide a free, three-day trolley service to the Capital Repertory Theatre.

From Friday, August 6 through Sunday, August 8, the trolley will bring theatergoers from the CDTA bus stop in front of the Quackenbush Garage on the corner of Broadway and Orange Street to the theater. Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said the trolley is all about accessibility.

“I look forward to seeing people stream off this trolley as we try to make it as easy as possible for people to be able to experience this incredible treasure here in the city of Albany,” she said.

Parking at the garage will cost $10, and the trolley will run every 10 minutes. Trolley service will begin at 5:45 p.m. and run through midnight on Friday and Saturday, and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

All riders are required to wear masks on the trolley. For more information about parking, visit Park Albany.

Friday will be the first show without pandemic restrictions since the theater underwent a $14 million renovation. Comedian Hasan Minhaj will be performing.
