Amsterdam Depot[]

The Amsterdam Depot was located in the block bounded by Amsterdam Avenue, Convent Avenue, and 128th and 129th Streets in Manhattanville, Manhattan. The MTA shut down the Amsterdam Depot's bus operations on September 7, 2003, the day the new 100th Street Depot opened. The depot was part of the Manhattan Division until spring 1998, when it was transferred to the Bronx Division due to the opening of the Michael J. Quill Depot and the closure of the Walnut Depot.[1] The depot was once a Third Avenue Railway car barn.[2] On January 6, 2008, MTA reopened the depot temporarily because of a rehabilitation project at the Mother Clara Hale Depot until it was completed in 2015. This depot garage now houses and maintains most of the museum and vintage bus fleet.
