If anybody is going to the State Fair, agencies throughout New York State are supposed to be bringing buses there to promote public transportation. I know Buffalo is transporting buses tomorrow night, was told Rochester, Binghamtom, etc.

The New York State Fair has added a park and ride location at Farrell Rd and John Glenn Blvd.  It is being managed by Centro but the buses and drivers are from RTS Rochester and CDTA Albany.  Rochester has 6 XD-40's operating and Albany has 4 Gillig diesels.  NFTA Buffalo also sent 6 CNG Novas which to my knowledge haven't been used yet.  All are being housed at the Centro garage for the duration of the fair.

Not sure the first day, but NFTA operators should be there toward the end of the fair, I know this up coming weekend and Labor Day.

The nfta operators are being sent the 1st through the 4th.

Any idea what Binghamton sent?  I'd be curious with the shape of a lot of their buses.

Good question. Wonder if they will be running those final days too, if they are really there. Looking at timson98's post, doesn't sound like they are there. In that case, I wonder what agency will run with metro, like CDTA did with RTS?

Nothing here from Binghamton.  I'm hearing that NFTA Novas will be running this weekend in addition to CDTA and RTS.  No idea what lot they will be assigned to.  Either way, there will be lots of variety to see at the main gate with the 4 largest upstate TA's participating.

Good to know. So the RTS and CDTA buses will continue to run then till the end of the fair?

The NFTA Novas were being used last Sunday on the parking lot shuttle at the fairgrounds. No idea whose operators were driving them.  The RGRTA and CDTA buses were running on the Farrell Road shuttle.

Latest New Flyer repaint in the new scheme is C40LF #2531.

On the unusual sightings front, Gillig 30-footer #1705 was on yesterday afternoon's route 38 run from Syracuse to Auburn via Elbridge and Weedsport.  A 33-mile run in a bouncing baby Gillig - whee! :o

Some of the 2400-series D30LF's that were displaced by the new Gillig shorties this spring are now operating on the Syracuse routes - 2400, 2403 and 2405 have been spotted in service so far.
