Here are two News Articles from 1981.

1) Talks about Suffolk Bus Corp taking over the S40 and why MSBA was leaving.

2) from 1981 talks about service starting about service starting on the 5A, 7A, 7B, 7C, 7D and 7E. Yes that is right there was a route numbered 7C.

Here is an article about Changes to bus service from 1987.

The highlights are.

1) The creation of the S57 and S59 from Sayville and Smith Haven Mall
2) The end of service on the 4A and 4B.
3) The S63 ends service to Sayville, and becoming it's current routing Smith Haven Mall - Patchouge.
4) The S57 and S59 will operate over the routeing of the 4A/B and S63 and the S59 will also cover an area that didn't have service before.
5) The S27 is expanded to Hauppauge from it's original end point at Garden City Ave and Udall Road in West Brentwood.

Here is a news paper photo of Suffolk Transit New Flyer D901A #111 and it's driver from the June 6, 1 1985 Issue of The Suffolk County News

At the time the photo was taken #111 was assigned to Alert Coach Lines. The bus at some point after would be assigned to Inter County Motor Coach and it's number changed to one of the #622, the exact number escapes my mind at the moment.

Also in 1985, Alert Coach Lines would lose the contract to operate the S1.

Hey Mac!

What were the exact routing of these bus routes? I know the 4A and 4B were replaced by the S59 but can you find out what exact routing? Where can I look up the information?


4A (1981-1987)
4B (1981-1987)
S76 (I) (1984)
7C (1981-19xx)
8B (1981-19xx)

The 4A traveled from Sayville up Lakeland Ave to Ronkonkoma Railroad Station, and returned to Sayville by Holbrook Ave.

The 4B traveled from Sayville up Holbrook Ave to Ronkonkoma Railroad Station and returned to Sayville by Lakeland Ave.

7C I have no idea. All that I have found of it was a mention along with the 7A and 7B of where they traveled to. What I read didn't even distinguish what route went to Bellport and what one went to Medford.

The only thing I saw of the 8B was an mention that it could be taken to get to a hearing or something like that that was being held at the County Attorney's office which at the time was on Main Street in Riverhead.

I found everything out by using New York State historical newspaper website.

I'm still missing like 13 or so routes. I can account for one route but not it's route number, the route went from Bay Shore to Hauppauge Via NYS 111. It isn't the S45 since the S45 is listed in the same article as going from Bay Shore to Smithtown.
