Today, MTA buses run in all five boroughs (including Nassau County and in portions of Westchester County and Suffolk County), on more than 250 local and 65 express routes. They account for 80 percent of the city's surface mass transportation. But this vast bus network has a history, and that history dates back to November 26th, 1832, with the first horse car line in the city of New York (and in the United States, for that matter) by the New York & Harlem Railroad.

This is a heavily detailed and ultra comprehensive of buses operated by the MTA's predecesors; New York City Omnibus Corporation, Fifth Avenue Coach Company, Surface Transportation Corporation, New York City Transit System, New York City Transit Authority and the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority; dating back as far as 1905 and up to the most recently fully retired bus fleet.
