Colonie is at the center of New York State's Capital District, with plenty of room for raising a family and just as much room for raising a business. Colonie is the hub of the Capital District just minutes from the downtowns of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy. Getting into and flying out of Colonie is exceptionally easy. The Albany International Airport, which serves the entire Capital Region, is located within Colonie, making a trip to the airport just minutes away. The airport is served by five major carriers and a host of smaller commuter airlines.

Colonie is bisected by four major New York State highways, which have encouraged the growth of tractor-trailer terminals and transfer warehouses. In addition to its major state highways, it has an excellent arterial road network ensuring ease of automobile travel, an excellent public transportation system, and Amtrak service with direct passenger trains to New York City, Chicago, Boston, and Montreal.
Employers will find a strong and diverse labor pool in the Capital District with a variety of skills and talents, whether your need is high-tech engineering capabilities or reliable support staff.
