Attached below is a roster of GM transit buses operated by NYCTA, certain NYCTA predecessors (East Side, Comprehensive), MABSTOA, and MABSTOA predecessor companies (NYCO, ST, 8th Avenue Coach, Madison Avenue Coach). It arbitrarily starts with the introduction of the GM alphanumeric model system (i.e. TD-4502 and onward) and ends with the 4300-series RTS-06.
FACCO was an early and vitally important proponent of Yellow and GM coaches, so it is not surprising that GM transit buses dominated the NYC transit scene for many years. While Mack and Flxible did sell significant numbers of buses in the NYC area, other historically important transit bus manufacturers (e.g. ACF-Brill, Ford, White) could not penetrate the NYC market to any great degree.
NYCTA, MABSTOA, and their predecessors operated 18 different GM transit bus models during the 45-year period from 1941-1986; 3 of these models (TDH-5101, T6H-5309A, T6H-5310A) were unique to NYC.
As always, please jump in with additions, corrections, and deletions.

One comment: The casual reader could be misled by the roster's format into believing that, for example, Surface Transportation TD-4502s in the 1011-1060 series were still in service at the 1962 MaBSTOA takeover of Fifth Avenue and Surface Transit. The fact is that this group of early old looks was retired early by STS. One or more went to Newark, New Jersey Independent operators in Newark in 1950, and three wound up rebuilt without their exit doors and in service for one of the Boro Busses companies on the Jersey Shore in 1948.

Indeed, even though the ex-NYCO TD-4502s and 4505s in FACL service at takeover were quite serviceable, and could have run for several more years, the city did not include them in the condemnation proceeding.

Thanks and best regards,
Vince

Bob,

Great research job and very interesting!

It would take forever for me to get enough pictures together to back you up on this one - so I think I'll just let everyone conjure up their own images.

Again, great job and thanks for sharing.

Were some of the MABSTOA 1963 GMC 5303 model Fishbowl buses
(3301- 3555) reassigned to Nassau County "Suburban Bus Operating Authority in the late 1970's? Question


No. MSBA received ten 1961 NYCTA 5301s (1000s), seven 1965 MaBSTOA 5303s (64, 65, 6600s), five 1969 MaBSTOA Flxibles (4600s), and 50 1975 TA & OA Flxibles (7000-7900s). All of those were gone by 1993. In the mid-1990s, MSBA received Blitz Fishbowls and 1981-82 RTSes.

The 1971 NYCTA orders of T6H-5305A's, I noticed, were not included. As you can see, they were way jumbled up:

517-526 NYCTA 4300-4309 2-3/71
527-538 NYCTA 4350-4361 2-3/71
539-548 NYCTA 4430-4439 2-3/71
549-560 NYCTA 4362-4373 2-3/71
561-570 NYCTA 4310-4319 2-3/71
571-580 NYCTA 4440-4449 2-3/71
581-592 NYCTA 4374-4385 2-3/71
593-602 NYCTA 4470-4479 2-3/71
603-612 NYCTA 4320-4329 2-3/71
613-623 NYCTA 4386-4396 2-3/71
624-633 NYCTA 4450-4459 2-3/71
634-644 1 NYCTA 4397-4407 2-3/71
645-654 NYCTA 4330-4339 2-3/71
655-664 NYCTA 4460-4469 2-3/71
665-675 NYCTA 4408-4418 2-3/71
676-679 NYCTA 4480-4483 2-3/71
[680-685 NOT BUILT]
686-695 NYCTA 4340-4349 2-3/71
696-706 NYCTA 4419-4429 2-3/71
707-722 NYCTA 4484-4499 2-3/71

4401 (serial number 0638), of course, was later rebuilt by Blitz as 5227 - and as such, is the one on holiday specials today.

Oh, and the 1960 3161-3220 in TDH-5301 was actually ST, not NYCTA.
