There are a number of routes available, but the quickest and most straightforward route is as follows: Leaving the airport, your driver will get onto Albany Shaker Road and drive south for 8 km which will then turn into Shaker Road for another kilometre. Your driver will then turn right onto N Pearl Street, which they’ll follow for another 2 km until you eventually arrive downtown and take the small city roads to reach your exact Albany hotel or apartment.
