The MTA Bus Company (MTA Bus for short), a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is a public benefit corporation created to operate those bus routes formerly operated by private companies in the New York City area. The privately operated bus routes were taken over on a staggered schedule, beginning with Liberty Lines Express in January 2005 and ending with Triboro Coach Corp. in February 2006. The legal name of the corporation is the MTA Bus Company. There exist preliminary plans for the company to also take over bus operations of New York City Transit and (former)Long Island Bus.[1]

MTA Bus started to operate the former Liberty Lines Express bus routes on January 3, 2005, Queens Surface Corporation bus routes on February 27, 2005, New York Bus Service bus routes on July 1, 2005, Command Bus Company bus routes on December 5, 2005, Green Bus Lines bus routes on January 9, 2006, and Jamaica Buses bus routes on January 30, 2006. Triboro Coach Corporation, the final remaining company, ceased operating and its routes have been operated by MTA Bus since February 20, 2006.


The MTA Bus fleet has been repainted into standard MTA livery and has retired and replaced most of the old private companies.
