Our petition for CDTA service to in the South End has paid off. We got CDTA's attention and they are willing to work with us to make sure that the residents of Albany's South End, especially the disabled and the elderly, will have a route so that they can reach their destinations easily and safely. This is God's hand at work, and we are excited and blessed to be able to help our community with their transportation needs. Thanks to all who supported our cause and signed our petition. It's because of everyone that we accomplished this.

Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support in our mission to help the South End community.
