Syracuse University starting Saturday will run a free shuttle service for students to get from campus to the New York State Fair throughout the Labor Day weekend.

The shuttles service time will be from 12 to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and noon to 9 p.m. on Monday. The pick-up location for students is College Place bus stop, and drop-off is at the pink lot at the fairgrounds. The university is also providing accessible transportation options for students who may need it.

Students must show a valid university ID.

When students are ready to return to campus, the shuttle stop will be the same as the drop-off location. While the shuttles are free, students are to purchase their own fair admission tickets.
