Fifth Avenue Coach Lines, Inc. was the successor company to New York City Omnibus Corporation, operating routes of NYCo and the former Fifth Avenue Coach Company. It also was the parent company of Surface Transit, Incorporated.

It should be noted that the corporate identity of the company was inherited from NYCO, even though the "Fifth Avenue" name was used.
