The Avenue B & East Broadway Transit Company, Inc. was a bus operator in Manhattan.

It was organized in 1932 to run bus routes which had been operated as streetcars by the Dry Dock, East Broadway and Battery Railroad. This was the first streetcar company to fail and for some time until 1932, a jitney operation had preceded the Avenue B company.

The main route was originally the M8-Grand Street Crosstown route; over time the Grand Street route became secondary in importance to the company's other route, M9-Avenue B. Only the M9 route continues to be operated; the designation M8 has been given to another route.

Although an independent company, the company coordinated its routes with those of the Third Avenue Transit Company (ultimately Surface Transit, Inc.) and exchanged transfers with that system.

In 1980 the company's operation was taken over by the New York City Transit Authority. (See this listing for details of the M9 as currently operated)
