New York Bus Service. Even though I am in Liberty Lines territory, I liked the paint scheme of NYBS. They had more color on and in their buses, than the other PBL. Blue started in the front around the headlights, went along the side bottoms, and then up the back.

As a kid and still till this day, the Command logo was always my favorite; runners up were/still are the Triboro Coach Corp <red stripe>, & the Queens Surface

i like Triboro since they provided an Excellent Service and also where I live when Triboro was still around buses in their red design was all you could see anyway. except for the Q60 and Q11 which were Green Lines, but Green Lines design is ugly

What? Triboro and excellent don't go together. Some of those buses went out leaning to the right, while others went out leaning to the left. They did have more than than red stripe most of the time, since their buses always had replaced panels of a different color. White bus with a red stripe and gray side or rear light panel.

Jamaica's colors looked good on anything, whether it was a Grumman/Flx, RTS, Classic, or even a model JB never operated. GIFs displaying JB's final color scheme;

I actually chose Green Bus Lines. I practically grew up around the Q10. My second choice would have been Jamaica Bus Lines because of the 112. In my opinion NYBS and JB had some of the more creative schemes.

I loved the red, white, and blue and cursive font of New York Bus Service. It was so bright and cheerful.

 

Though I do miss that vivid orange of Queens Surface...
