Capital District Transportation Committee - CDTC

Phone: (518) 458-2161
CDTC is the designated MPO for the Albany-Schenectady-Troy & Saratoga Springs metropolitan area. Every metro area in the U.S. with a population of over 50,000 must have a designated MPO to qualify for any federal transportation funding.
CDTC provides a forum for state & local officials to discuss transportation issues & reach a consensus on transportation plans and specific programs of transportation projects.
CDTC has its origins in the old Capital District Transportation Study (CDTS), set up in 1965 through agreements between New York State and the four Capital District counties (Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, & Schenectady) and the 78 municipalities in those counties. The CDTC is composed of elected & appointed officials from each of the 4 counties; from each of the 8 cities in the 4 counties; from the Town of Colonie; the NYS Department of Transportation; CDTA; the Capital District Regional Planning Commission; the NYS Thruway Authority; the Albany Port District Commission; the Albany International Airport; & at-large members representing the area's towns and villages. The FHWA & FTA serve as advisory members.
The CDTC sets its own agenda for planning activities, & with a small professional staff funded primarily with FHWA, FTA & county funds devoted to this purpose, & with the assistance of other member agencies, it investigates issues critical to the future of the Capital Region. CDTC's planning efforts are intended to be action-oriented, answering questions such as: "How will the expectations & role of the transportation system be different in the year 2040 from what they are today? What type of future development pattern should be encouraged through strategic transportation investments? How can the transportation system be managed or improved to enhance the quality of life, protect the environment and sustain economic vitality in the region? What are the financial requirements to provide the desired system and how can they be secured?"
CDTC is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties in New York State.
