The Yonkers Depot is an MTA Bus Depot located at 59 Babcock Place in Yonkers, New York. Originally part of Liberty Lines Express, it is currently owned and operated by MTA Bus. One of the two MTA bus depots operating bronx routes, along with Eastchester Depot, this depot only houses express bus service between Yonkers (or Western Bronx) and Manhattan.
Liberty Lines Express HistoryEdit
Liberty Lines Express Inc., from 1953 to 2004, operated express bus service from the Bronx and Yonkers to Manhattan, under the Bernacchia Brothers Bus Company from 1953 and 1956 when its name was changed to Liberty Lines Express brand, successor to the former operator of Pelham Parkway Express Inc., similar to the bus pictured on the bottom right. Liberty Lines purchased companies such as West Fordham Transit and Westchester Street Transportation in 1969, Yonkers Transit in 1972, Riverdale Transit in 1975, Club Transportation Company in 1981, and Hartsdale Bus Lines Inc. in 1999. This service is now run by MTA Bus effective on January 3, 2005, and operating out of its existing Yonkers Bus Depot.
