New York City Transit Buses 1945-1975 Photo Archive


New York City has one of the finest and largest transit systems in the country. Beginning with early horse-drawn omnibuses, followed by battery-operated streetcars and electric street railway systems, finally by 1947 most of New York converted to buses. After WWII bus manufacturers including General Motors and Mack developed modern, larger buses to the City of New York’s exclusive specifications. This book portrays each of the eleven bus companies (private and city owned) that provided service to patrons from post-WWII era through the late 1970s. A concise history for each company is provided along with route schematics and large format pictures of buses operating in New York City.
