Content Description: 

Passengers traveling on the Erie Canal typically used packet boats. These fast boats carried only passengers, no cargo. Contrary to popular belief, they did not travel across the state. Rather, the boats had set routes and schedules, much like today's city bus service. Passengers traveling the length of the state would need to use multiple boats to make the trip, which would last about six days to travel from Albany to Buffalo.
