NYC bus Service provided express bus service between Midtown Manhattan and the Bronx from 1970 until MTA Bus Company assumed operations July 1, 2005. The company was founded in the mid-1940s under a different name to provide school bus service (see NYC bus map). It began operating racetrack services from the Bronx and Upper Manhattan in 1949 (as NYC bus Tours).
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority operates a number of bus routes in Manhattan, NYC, United States as its mentioned in NYC bus map; one minor bus route is privately-operated by Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation. Many of NYC bus route are the direct descendants of streetcar lines (see list of streetcar lines in Manhattan).
The first bus company in Manhattan was the Fifth Avenue Coach Company, which began operating the Fifth Avenue Line (now the M1 route as its shown in NYC bus map) in 1886. When NYC Railways began abandoning several streetcar lines in 1919, the replacement bus routes (including the current M21 and M22 routes) were picked up by the NYC Department of Plant and Structures (DP&S).
Presently, the New York City Transit Authority and its subsidiary Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority operate most local buses in Manhattan as you can see in NYC bus map. The NYC bus routes prefixed with "M" - in other words, those bus are considered to run primarily in Manhattan by the MTA.
