FOIL Request

Freedom of Information Law Policy

The Freedom of Information Law (“FOIL”), which is set forth in Article 6 of the Public Officers Law, allows members of the public to access certain existing governmental records. A list of records maintained by CDTA may be found here. It is important to note that FOIL pertains only to existing records that are not exempted from disclosure. Additional information regarding FOIL may be found on the Committee on Open Government website, located at http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/

Records of the Capital District Transportation Authority may be requested in writing from the agency’s Records Access Officer as follows:

Please include a regular mailing address and telephone number in your request, even where the request is made electronically or by facsimile transmission.

Procedure
