Amtrak will be offering direct transportation to the New York State Fair. From Aug. 24 to Sept. 5 Amtrak will stop at the New York State Fairgrounds station giving riders immediate access to the event.

Fairgoers can skip tolls, road traffic, and parking fees once they arrive. There is also a "See NY and Save" discount which may be applied to trips booked 5 days or more in advance.

The direct train service marks a 20-year partnership between Amtrak and the State Department of Transportation.
