Synopsis: The Legendary Fifth Avenue Coach Company were famous for their double-deck buses and for being a leader for public transportation in New York City. They were the first bus company to run gasoline-powered buses and air-conditioning, and were the last company in the U.S. to use double-deckers, which were also the last double-deck buses built in America. Fifth Avenue has always been one of New York’s more fashionable boulevards, and its bus line was regarded by many as a peg or two above the city’s other transit operators. The distinguished “Queen Mary” double-deck buses were to New York as the cable car was to San Francisco. See all the various bus designs from the early horse-drawn omnibuses and buses brought over from England, early Brill’s built on French chassis, the buses that Fifth Ave Coach built in their own garage on 102nd Street using American-made chassis, and the later advancements to Yellow Coaches and GMCs, until the prestigious company finally got overtaken by the city’s own public transportation system.

About the Author: Born in  1942 in Queens, NY, during the heyday of the Fifthe Ave. Coach Co., Oliver has always been a bus and trolley fan. He has always had a keen interest in not only buses and trolleys, but commercial vehicles in general. He owns a 1969 DIVCO milk truck and a 1988 Cadillac Hearse. He is presently a member of the Board of Directors for teh Museum of Bus Transportation in Hershey, PA, and the curator of their museum. Also a member of the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, Rockhill Trolley Museum, and the Motor Bus Society. In 2008, he was nominated for the prestigous Jefferson Award in the Susquehana Valley which honors outstanding volunteers.
