Two years to the day after the TWU strike that led to Fifth Avenue Coach Lines (via its NYCO and FACO Divisions) and Surface Transit being stripped of all their bus routes and such routes being eventually taken over by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority (MaBSTOA), the 7 - Broadway, Columbus and Lenox Avenues line has the following service changes:
- Northbound buses, which since 1957 had transitioned from Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue) to Eighth Avenue at 53rd Street, now go all the way along Sixth to 59th Street (Central Park South), then run west on 59th to Broadway at Columbus Circle.
- Southbound buses, which had transitioned from Ninth Avenue to Seventh Avenue at 54th Street since bus service replaced streetcars on this route in 1936, now turn east at Ninth and 58th Street, and operate east on 58th to Seventh. (Many a person who attended tapings of, say, Dick Clark's $10,000 / $20,000 Pyramid at the since-torn-down ABC TV-15 studio [the former Elysee Theatre] have spoken of the M7 passing by 58th as they were waiting on line to see the show.)
