Albany, Georgia – The latest addition to the Albany Technical College fleet is a 41.5-foot Blue Bird Vision 44 bus, which seats 44 people. The custom-ordered bus arrived Friday on campus and will be used primarily for transportation for the Titans and Lady Titans basketball teams.  And best of all its made in Georgia by Yancey Bus out of Fort Valley, Georgia. Fort Valley, GA, is the original location of Blue Bird since its founding in 1927. 

The retiring athletics bus was donated to the college approximately ten years ago and has transported the teams successfully through many seasons. The new bus for Albany Technical College’s basketball teams better serves the needs of the college and will be used regularly. 

“The men’s and women’s basketball teams are an integral part of the Albany Technical College collegiate experience. Therefore, it is imperative that the basketball teams, cheerleaders, and coaches can keep their commitment and safely arrive at the scheduled games, said Dr. Anthony Parker, President of Albany Technical College. 

The 44-passenger Blue Bird Vision bus has a diesel engine and was customized for team travel. The design was created by Albany Tech’s Public Relations Department featuring the teams Titan mascot incorporating the Titan “T” logo into the design. The branding will make it easily recognizable as it transports the Titan teams around the state. 

The Titans will play South Georgia State College in the final game of the season Saturday, February 29, at 2:00 pm in the ASU HPER gym. As part of the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association, Titans are 17W-11L and 10W-5L in the conference. The lady Titans finished 7W-20L and 4W-13L in the conference.  

Tuesday, March 3, 7:00 pm Titans will play Andrew College at 7 pm in the ASU HPER gym. That will be the first round of the GCAA tournament.
