County Public Transportation
Montgomery County’s Public Transportation System consists of a daily commuter run from Fonda to Albany, and a western public transportation route from St. Johnsville to Fonda and the Fulton Montgomery Community College campus. These systems connect with the City of Amsterdam Transit and the City of Gloversville Transit and allow residents to have access to jobs and education the entire length of the County and beyond. The Business Development Center is the County’s interface with Brown Coach, the County’s third party provider for all public transportation. As the County sponsor, it is the MCBDC’s responsibility to provide all administration related to the State and Federal grants that are utilized for public transportation.
