The Jackie Gleason Depot, formerly the Fifth Avenue Depot until June 30, 1988, is a Brooklyn Division Depot located on the east side of Fifth Avenue between 36th and 39th Streets in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Named after Jackie Gleason, who grew up in Brooklyn and played bus driver Ralph Kramden in The Honeymooners, the depot is just west of the 36th-38th Street Yard of the New York City Subway. The depot was equipped with a compressed natural gas fueling station on June 7, 1999, and became the first NYCTA depot to support CNG buses. CNG testing began in 1990, when the NYCTA was testing Transportation Manufacturing Corporation RTS-06 CNG demonstration model buses.
