Parking at the new parking lot at the corner of Willis Ave and State Fair Blvd will be free for the rest of the NYS Fair’s run, according to Fair Director Troy Waffner.
Centro shuttle buses run free of charge from the lot to Gate 10.
The Fair is waiving the $5 parking fee to help fair-goers get used to using the lot, which holds approximately 1,800 spaces and is less than a mile from the Fairgrounds.
“Utilization of the Willis Ave. lot has been fairly low. We know it takes time for people to change their habits and we want to help shorten the learning curve for our fairgoers,” Waffner said.
