New York Parkways

Hello all,

Looking into joining the school bus experience. Any knowledge of the New York parkway rules (Saw Mill, Southern State, Hutchinson, etc) would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking for a mini bus to covert to private use (non-commercial). Can the non-duelly vans (4 tires not 6 'cause that's what I'm interested in) drive on the parkways legally?

Best, TT

With a four wheel vehicle, you're barely talking about more than a passenger van. I'm sure your parkways allow full size buses, don't they?

I remember seeing signs that said " Vehicals over 11ft must exit"
More than once while visiting family on the news their would be tractor trailer stuck under a overpass on the sawmill.

Stu, in NJ, I saw a J.B. Hunt cabover stuck under a low overpass, clearly marked at 11'6". J.B. drivers ain't the brightest.

Don't get me started about Swift drivers. They're one step below J.B. recruiters.

There was a J.B. recruiter who, in Nashville, recruited a lizard!
