Greater Glens Falls Transit (GGFT) was the public transportation provider to the city of Glens Falls, NY and its surrounding three county area of Warren, Washington and Saratoga.

On May 11th, 2023, the Warren County Board of Supervisors voted to join the Capital District Transportation Authority's service area, effectively merging Greater Glens Falls Transit into the CDTA[1]. As of October 2023, the GGFT system began the process of transferring assets and equipment to the CDTA, to include bus stop rebranding.[2] Effective January 1st, 2024, GGFT operations were formally absorbed into CDTA as their Warren division (CDTA Warren)[3][4].
