The good thing about Sage is that all students are allowed to have their own car on campus, and the only expense is the parking permit (which is recommended). Parking permits cost $40 (prior to January 1), but it is worth it because the city streets are often crowded, so parking in the lots is a must. The College does have a shuttle bus to transport students to and from the Sage of Albany campus for classes or even to the mall. The hours and days vary by semester, but the shuttles are usually regularly available and free.
Public buses and taxi cabs are always available, but most students rely on taxi cabs since they run later into the evening, whereas the buses do not. Taxi cabs cost anywhere from $6 or higher, depending on the distance being traveled. The basic bus fare starts at $1.50, but the price depends on whether you want to purchase multiple days or not. Taking the bus is definitely cheaper, but taxi cabs will travel to more places outside of the city. The school does not offer long-distance transportation, such as rides to the airport. Students usually take a cab or get a ride from a friend in order to get to the airport or train station. Since the College is not very far from these places, it is convenient to locate them, whether a taxi cab or a friend is the source of transportation.
