Central New York has been a hub of travel since gatherings of representatives of the Haudenosaunee more than a thousand years ago.
Less than two hundred years ago, the construction of the Erie Canal and then railroads led to Syracuse growing from a population of less than 1,000 residents to more than 100,000 residents in eighty years.
Fifty years ago, the construction of the east-west New York State Thruway, followed by the construction of the north-south Interstate 81 in the 1960's and the designation of Hancock airport as an "International" airport in 1970, solidified Syracuse and Central New York as a key transportation hub to the end of the century.
Now, with continued investment in these transportation assets - and construction of New York State's largest truck/rail freight intermodal terminal in the 1990's, Central New York is positioned to offer efficient transportation services to residents, visitors and industry well into the 21st century.
What this means in
real world terms is that the average commute time
in Central New York is right around twenty minutes! And, for businesses,
it means that once loaded, products are on the road to customers in
minutes - not hours, or days.
