Bus 55


“The powers that be will tell you that none of Albany’s buses run after midnight on a Sunday and anyone who says otherwise is crazy.

The problem is that people have seen a city bus prowling the streets in the hours before morning. They say its number is 55. They say its engine growls, its windows are filthy and the make and model are decades out of date. There are even some folks that say getting onto that bus is the last thing you’ll ever do.” -Brian Foster
