The shiny red schedules for the new BusPlus service between Schenectady and Albany are turning up at info kiosks and on buses around the CDTA region. Here are the first bits of info that struck me, comparing thr current direct service--the No. 55, Albany-Schenectady bus--which is about to fade into the mists of time, with the new service--No. 905, BusPlus--which officially starts April 3rd.
First bus Weekday morning from Schenectady:
No. 55: 4:05 AM
No. 905: 4:00 AM
First bus Weekday morning from Albany:
No. 55: 5:05 AM
No. 905: 5:15 AM
Those are comparable.
Last bus weekday evenings from Schenectady:
No. 55: 12:15 AM
No. 905: 10:00 PM
Last bus weekday evening from Albany:
No. 55: 1:12 AM
No. 905: 11:15 PM
The weekends are when things really change . . .
