The MTA Bus Company (MTA Bus for short), a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is a public benefit corporation created to operate those bus routes formerly operated by private companies in the New York City area. The privately-operated bus routes are in the midst of being taken over by the City of New York, and as each of the routes are acquired the City is turning them over to MTA Bus for operation. The legal name of the corporation is the MTA Bus Company. There exist preliminary plans for the company to also take over bus operations of New York City Transit and Long Island Bus.[1] Image File history File links Download high resolution version (1000x544, 13 KB) Image from [1].
