The Metropolitan Transportation Authority operates a number of bus routes in the Bronx, New York, United States. Many of them are the direct descendants of streetcar lines (see list of streetcar lines in the Bronx). All local buses are operated by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority, except for the QBx1 (see list of multi-borough bus routes in New York City), a local bus route operated by MTA Bus Company. For express bus service to Manhattan, see list of express bus routes in New York City.

This table gives details for the routes prefixed with "Bx" - in other words, those considered to run primarily in the Bronx by the MTA. For details on routes with other prefixes, see the following articles:
