    Default How Much Do You Want to Pay?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You could, if you really wanted to, take the New York State Thruway all the way from Niagara/Buffalo to New York City. That would involve a drive of 540 miles (from Toronto) and cost you $15.90 in tolls. Or you could take a 'middle' route, getting off the Thruway in Syracuse and taking I-81/I-380/I-80 to New York. That way is only 492 miles and $5.35 in tolls. Finally you could Shunpike, avoiding the Thruway for all but the link between Niagara and Buffalo. For that, you'd take I-290 all the way around Buffalo and head west (south in reality) on I-90. Then NY-400 would connect you to US-20A which takes you to I-390 at Geneseo. Take I-390 to I-86/NY-17 and pick up I-81 at Binghamton and continue into NYC as on the 'middle' route. That route is the shortest at 483 miles and the cheapest with only the $0.75 toll in the Buffalo area, but would probably take a little longer because parts of it are on non-freeway type roads. Oh, and don't forget to add in the costs of the toll bridge to get across the Niagara River.

    Default traffic

    In theory, I'd say the I-81 route would be the fastest. Its all interstate and its the shortest.

    However, your exact location within New York and traffic could potentially make the Thruway a little faster. I haven't run into really bad traffic with either option, but I don't know the traffic paterns well enough to say which option might be better at which time.
