Queens Bus Map With Private Bus Lines Listed (Plus The Other Boroughs, Too!)

Recommended Posts

I found an official Queens Bus Map from September 1999 with service guide listing Queens Bus Routes by TA, Green, Jamaica, Queens and Triborough (bottom of map) online:

Also, an official Brooklyn Bus Map from September 1999:

An official Staten Island Bus Map with Saint George Terminal Bus Service Guide (bottom of map) from September 1999:

And an official The Bronx Bus Map from September 1999:

However, the official Manhattan Bus Map is the January 2000 AD edition:

I hope you enjoy these borough bus maps from 1999. I apologize for not finding the matching official Manhattan Bus Map from September 1999. 70(EE)

Wow, the Queens map really brings back memories of old routes like the fare-free Q69 and the Q10A

I love the old Queens Bus map. I wish I didn't throw out my December 2002 map with all the separate private bus companies years ago.

I'm glad you like the bus maps. These are the oldest official MTA maps I can find online. I, too, like the Queens Bus Map for the memories.

 

The Wayback Machine has some interesting items, transit related, dating back to 1996. http://www.lirr.org seems to have more listed than http://www.mta.info and you can look up other agencies like NJ Transit, Septa, MBTA, CTA also.

Do you want me to give you one when we hang out next time?

I remember I had a Queens Map from 1998 that someone gave me in 2002. Little did I know it would become rare to find any map that has PBL names or references on it. If I wasn't a careless kid I'd probably have it now. On the wayback machine they even have some old PBL maps from 2000 and the PBL websites.

Yep, I found those old maps months ago. Too bad I can't find the April 2007 Bronx map. :tdown:

 

Eltingville transit center still has bronx bus maps that are from 2007 and 2008.

not quite sure. im assuming around late 90s early 2000s? it had low ridership. it primarily served co-op city and new rochelle then non stop to playland. n/b buses had "playland" signed and s/b buses stated "co-op city". that bus gave a good view of the now eastchester depot back when it was nybs. it was my favorite bee line route.

You can always check on EBAY for older maps. THere are almost always postings for several years on the site.
