This information was obtained from the excellent Cleanairbus website when it was up and running in 2003. To say that the PBL's and their rosters have changed significantly in the past 4 years would be an extreme understatement. I think these rosters and the detailed supporting information shown with them are important historical snapshots for these "fallen flags" of NYC transit history.

NYCDOT Bus Roster



Home



A roster page for the seven NYCDOT-operated bus companies...Liberty Lines, NY Bus Service, Command, Queens Surface, Triboro Coach, Green Lines, and Jamaica Buses. Save this rosters, as these seven companies might not even exist after this year...due to a possibly MTA takeover of the companies and its buses and routes!

Roster updated 3/7/2003
