New York Bus Service was a bus company in New York City, United States, operating express service between the Bronx and Manhattan until July 1, 2005, when the MTA Bus Company took over the operations.
The company was founded in the mid-1940s under a different name to provide school bus service. It began operating racetrack services from the Bronx and Upper Manhattan in 1949 (as New York Bus Tours). Its first public route began operation in 1970.
Just prior to MTA Bus takeover, New York Bus Service operated the following routes that are now based in Eastchester Bus Depot:
- BxM6 Midtown Manhattan - Parkchester
- BxM7 Midtown Manhattan - Co-op City
- BxM7A Midtown Manhattan - Pelham Bay
- BxM7B Midtown Manhattan - City Island
- BxM9 Midtown Manhattan - Throgs Neck
- BxM10 Midtown Manhattan - Morris Park
