As a subsidiary of the New York City Transit Authority, the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority (MaBSTOA) was created in 1962 to take over bus services for the bankrupt Fifth Avenue Coach Company and Surface Transit, Inc.'s routes. MaBSTOA was created so that employees would not be subject to civil service employment rules, however, as a practice, all "rank and file" employees such as bus operators, mechanics, and supervisors, have civil service protection like other NYCTA employees. MaBSTOA also has a separate pension plan from other NYCTA and MTA employees.
