Of the several transit companies that went into forming the Capital District Transit Authority, the United Traction Company,
with a fleet of 175 buses, was the largest of the several companies involved in unifying public transit in the Capital District
of Albany. Schenectady Transportation Corporation was second in terms of fleet size and route mileage. The several suburban
type buses in STC's fleet primarily operated on an express route between Schenectady and Albany. Conventional transit buses
provided local service on both STC and UTC's routes.
