ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany transit introduced their new swipe cards on Thursday. Starting September 22nd the cards will be put to use. Officials say they have been planning this upgrade.
"This is actually apart of our capital funding as well," said Transit Planner Tennesha Parker. "It's funding that we actually utilize to improve services, to increase the efficiency in the services that we do have."
