Interstate 88, which connects Binghamton with Schenectady and the Capital Region of the state, runs along side the Susquehanna River, and separates the older section of the city (center city and Main Street) with Southside, home to malls, big box stores, and home improvement maga-stores. This divided, limited access, four-lane highway has three interchanges in Oneonta.

By bus

The Trailways Bus Terminal is located at 47 Market Street in Oneonta. This location is part of the lowest level of the municipal parking garage, across from the Foothills Performing Arts Center. Oneonta is a hub for Trailways, locations served from Oneonta include several daily runs to and from the Port Authority in NYC, Long Island, Albany, Binghamton and Utica. Not all runs are non-stop, some require changing buses at another hub location. Albany, Binghamton and of course NYC are major hubs from which service to the entire nation (and Canada) can be accessed.

Buy

Oneonta is one of the few places in the region with a large selection of 'real' stores.

Southside (Route 23) in Oneonta, has runs from the intersection of Main Street (at Home Depot) in Oneonta east to the Town of Davenport in Delaware County. It is a typical unsightly 'main drag' with mostly all the amenities that one could require of suburban sprawl America.

In town, the business do become more interesting:
