Capital District Transportation Authority, Regional Transit Service and Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority will provide a total of 16 buses at designated state fair park and ride locations, including the brand new John Glenn/Farrell Road Park-N-Ride location, helping alleviate traffic congestion and move fairgoers to the grounds.
The Park-N-Ride location will be open exclusively during the Fair, starting today through Sept. 4.
The following transit authorities will provide buses as a result of this partnership with CENTRO the New York State Fair:
- Regional Transit Service in Rochester will provide six buses, drivers and an operations supervisor to assist in managing the John Glenn/Farrell Road Park-N-Ride location.
- Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority in Buffalo will provide six buses throughout the fair along with drivers during the first weekend and last four days of the Fair.
- The Capital District Transportation Authority in Albany will provide four buses and up to four operators.
The John Glenn/Farrell Road Park-N-Ride system will be open from 8:30 a.m. to midnight for the run of the fair. Shuttles will depart every 15 to 20 minutes. Early estimates suggest that this new added bus service will be able to help move more than 1,000 people per hour.
In addition to the new Park-N-Ride, CENTRO Express buses will regularly depart from State Fair Park-N-Ride locations across Onondaga, Cayuga and Oswego counties arriving at the Fair's Main Gate.
