About Trailways of New York:

For nearly a century, Trailways of New York has been driven by safety, integrity, professionalism, and the conscious commitment to honoring a unique legacy that began in the Hudson Valley. Who and what we are today stems from our past and the remarkable people in it: an impressive list of transportation milestones, coupled with countless stories of people doing remarkable things to help others. Every milestone, story, employee and customer have helped us grow from a small regional carrier into the largest privately held intercity transportation company in New York State. With routes that include more than 150 destinations throughout New York, New Jersey, and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Québec. Our coaches cover in excess of 7 million miles, moving close to 2 million passengers per year.

We trace our roots back to the early 1920’s, when two small companies operated service in New York’s Ulster, Delaware, and Greene counties: Pine Hill-Kingston Bus Corp. and Rip Van Winkle Line. It was in 1922-an era when horses still moved the most people-that Mid-Hudson Valley transportation pioneers, brothers Russ and Levan “Bub” Merrihew, intent on capitalizing on the newly emerging bus industry, purchased from John B. Winne, a route connecting the communities of Pine Hill and Kingston by way of Stanley Steamer. Russ and “Bub” significantly expanded service in the area at the same time that John Van Gonsic Sr. and his Rip Van Winkle Line was expanding from its original route between Rosendale and Kingston. Together these two brands would go on to further connect Ulster, Greene, and Delaware Counties to New York City and beyond. In doing so, laying the groundwork for the future. Groundwork that through mergers and service expansions, wove additional carriers, routes, and destinations into what had become Adirondack Transit Lines. Our holdings grew to include The Dixie Bus Terminal in 1937 – a predecessor to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, below what is today, the Hotel Carter in Manhattan’s Theater District. The business remained largely unchanged for the next several decades. In 1964, Adirondack Transit Lines lost John Van Gonsic Sr. His son, John Van Gonsic, Jr. would briefly assume the role of CEO and later that year he acquired the Pine Hill-Kingston Bus Corporation following the death of “Bub” Merrihew. Pine Hill Trailways would be formed the following year.

After 7 years, the younger Van Gonsic moved into the role of Chairman, handing the role of CEO to his brother-in-law, Eugene J. Berardi. He ran the company until the time of his death in the 1976. To ensure that the company remained focused and rooted in family values, Eugene J. Berardi was succeeded by his wife, Cynthia Van Gonsic-Berardi, who continued moving the company forward until an illness forced her to step down, passing the company onto her son, Eugene J. Berardi Jr. in 1988. Under Eugene J. Berardi Jr., the routes of Empire Trailways were acquired in 1994, marking the company’s largest period of growth since the first half of the 20th Century. As part of the sale, Christine Park, owner of Empire Trailways chose to retain the rights to the Empire Trailways name, so Adirondack branded the new division, New York Trailways, thus finally connecting the Hudson Valley, New York City, and Adirondack regions to the rest of New York, and parts of Canada. A long-term revenue sharing partnership with Greyhound Bus Lines would follow, providing enhanced service and reliability to the customers of both brands, while paving the way for seamless connectivity to the much of the entire continent. Today, Trailways of New York operates under five brands: Adirondack Trailways, Pine Hill Trailways, New York Trailways, NeOn Bus, and as of August 2018, LINE, a business class service between New York City and the Catskills Region.

Becoming Trailways of New York required an uncompromised commitment to continually being mindful of our key differentiation: that we are a family owned business. That means that we must, above all else, promise that our customer’s safety and peace of mind will never be compromised. And second only to those promises is our goal to offer the very best customer service available in the industry. In 2019, we look forward to new growth, new value added service offerings, and a new look. We will open our remodeled and improved terminal in Kingston, NY; we will expand our Ulster County maintenance facility; complete a new state-of-the-art dispatch and operations center at New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal; begin paperless ticketing; and take delivery of even more new coaches, just to name a few. Each of these improvement and innovations will make the travel experience easier.

The enormous, sunlit interior also houses theme restaurants, family adventure museums, a comedy club, a 40 mph go-kart track, and even a multi-story ropes course.

2) Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST)

Located in the city’s former armory building, this interactive science museum and play center offers captivating activities for all ages. Toddlers and kids will love Science Playhouse, a five-level fun zone of tunnels and tubes, while older visitors can catch an IMAX film, enjoy a planetarium show, or explore dozens of hands-on science exhibits and demonstrations. As a bonus, MOST is smack-dab in the middle of the renovated Armory Square, home to chic shops, friendly pubs and upscale eateries.

3) Syracuse University

“The Hill” is the heart of contemporary Syracuse, offering a gorgeous architectural campus, the shops, bars, and restaurants of “M-Street,” and the year-round thrills of top college sports. The iconic Carrier Dome, the only domed stadium in the Northeast, seats nearly 50,000 fans and is home to NCAA Champion Orange basketball, as well as football, lacrosse, and world-class concerts from the likes of The Rolling Stones and Elton John.

4) The Great New York State Fair

Each August, the sprawling State Fairgrounds on the south shore of Onondaga Lake comes to rowdy, raucous life as America’s oldest state fair (first held in 1841) sets up for two weeks of good old-fashioned fun. The Fair offers endless amusements, from horse shows and livestock competitions to hundreds of places to eat and drink and buildings dedicated to everything from horticulture to conservation. The Midway is the place for carnival rides and games, the Native American village boasts art and tribal dances. Musical acts play for free every night.

5) Rosamond Gifford Zoo

Ranked among the top ten percent of zoos nationwide, the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnett Park provides homes for 700 animals, including African lions, penguins, and an extraordinary seven Asian elephants. The zoo is just the right size to enjoy in a single day, and combines a true dedication to both the care and welfare of the animals and to a fun and educational experience for visitors.

6) Central NY Regional Market

On Saturdays and Thursdays, this stadium-sized market focuses on the bounties of Central New York’s gardens and farms, while on Sundays the place transforms into a bustling and eclectic flea market, with deals to be had on everything from antique furniture and rare pop culture collectibles to cheaper items like books, toys and tools. Several unique food vendors also have stalls here, offering gourmet donuts and coffee, specialty hot dogs, and wine tastings. TrailwaysNY passengers can easily walk to the market, which shares a parking lot with the Regional Transportation Center.

7) Syracuse Stage

For theater lovers, no visit to Central New York could be complete without a visit to Syracuse Stage. For 44 seasons, this nationally recognized theater has played host to the biggest actors, directors and designers in the business, who, together with the theater’s permanent staff of artists, offer everything from contemporary dramas to boldly re-imagined classics from Shakespeare.

8) Everson Museum of Art

Housed in an I.M. Pei-designed building that is a work of art in itself, the Everson’s 11,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures and videos represent a unique and world-class collection of American art spanning over 200 years. The Everson is also home to one of America’s largest collections of ceramics, as well as one of the world’s first and largest collections of video art.

9) Erie Canal Museum

This one-of-a-kind museum, which first opened in 1962, preserves a fascinating chapter in New York State history: the era of the Erie Canal, which once stretched from Albany to Buffalo. The permanent collection tells the story of the canal with real artifacts, photos and paintings, audio productions, interactive displays and a replica of a canal line boat. But the crown jewel of the museum is the 1850 building itself, which for 30 years weighed every boat that traveled on the canal, and is the last remaining weighlock building in the U.S.

10) Landmark Theater

Entering the 2,800-seat Landmark Theater, completed in 1927, is like stepping back in time to the golden era of silent films. This fully restored, opulently-decorated movie palace is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and frequently hosts world class musicians, standup comics, movie revivals, and the touring companies of Broadway musicals and plays. Even when nothing is showing, the theater itself is worth a visit as a breathtaking example of architecture, decorative art, and cinema history.

Phelps. It’s now a historically preserved museum filled with artisan wood, crystal chandeliers, and a true taste of what it was like to live in America’s Gilded Age.

3) The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park

The 5th oldest zoo in the U.S. is home to red pandas, red wolves, penguins, a snow leopard, an arctic fox, otters, wallabees, and a menagerie of birds, amphibians, and invertebrates. As a bonus, you’ll also one of Binghamton’s famous vintage carousels! Binghamton Zoo is open from April to November.

4) Eat a Spiedie

Philly has its cheesesteaks, Buffalo has its wings…and Binghamton has the Spiedie. What, you didn’t know about this signature food? In the 1920’s, restauranteurs and Italian immigrants to the area invented a new sandwich made with marinated and grilled cubes of meat served on soft Italian bread or a sub roll. Yum! For the full authentic Spiedie experience, visit Lupo’s or the Spiedie & Rib Pit. If you’re traveling to Binghamton in early August, you can hit the annual Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally.

5) NYSEG Stadium

Double-A baseball is one of sports’ great secrets, offering up affordable, old-school fun for all ages. You can get your fill of it here, where the awesomely-named Binghamton Rumble Ponies play their hearts out each season.

6) Antique Row

Otherwise known as a mile-long stretch of Clinton Street filled with places to discover hidden treasure or flights of fancy for all budgets. In addition to the shops, you’ll also find cafes, community events, and a retro arcade. Ready, set…wander!

7) Recreation Park

This city park is so classic and something-for-everyone — there’s a playground, public art and fountains, walking paths, bandstand — it looks like something out of a TV show. Maybe that’s because it was in a TV show: Rod Serling grew up nearby and set his “Twilight Zone” episode Walking Distance in this very spot. The park is also home to another one of the “Carousel Capital of the World”’s antique merry-go-rounds.

8) See What’s Brewing

Home brew aficionados are in on the secret and now you are, too: Binghamton has a hopping craft beverage scene! (Pardon the pun, we had to do it.) Breweries like Galaxy Brewing Company, Water Street Brewing Company, and Binghamton Brewing Company serve up their farm-to-table innovations in unique tasting rooms. Beyond beer, spirit-makers like French Distillers & Alchemists and Black Bear Winery also deserve a stop on your tasting route.

9) Tri-Cities Opera Company

Whether you’re a buff or a newbie, regional companies like Tri-Cities are a great place to experience professional-quality opera in a more intimate setting. Tri-Cities stages both classical and modern theatre productions throughout the year.

10) Kopernik Observatory and Science Center

While you’re in Binghamton, why not reach for the stars? The Kopernik is one of the best-sited and best-equipped public observatories in the Northeast, and the first science lab facility in New York State designed for K-12 teachers, students, and their families. During their Friday night programs, you’ll find hands-on investigations using advanced telescopes, computers and other tools to discover the wonders of the Universe.
