On June 30, 1988 the New York City Transit Authority's Fifth Avenue Bus Depot in Brooklyn was renamed for native Brooklynite Jackie Gleason who played the character of bus driver Ralph Kramden on The Honeymooners. Kramden worked for the fictional Gotham Bus Company. It is located on 5th Avenue & 39th Street in the neighborhood of Sunset Park in Brooklyn, New York, adjacent to the 36th-38th Street Yard of the New York City Subway. The Jackie Gleason Depot is part of the Brooklyn Division of bus depots in the MTA New York City Transit buses. Around 1995, the depot converted to compressed natural gas (CNG) operation. It is one of four CNG bus depots in New York (along with West Farms Bus Depot, Spring Creek Depot and College Point Bus Depot) and the only all CNG bus depot in the city.
