This list also does not include buses formerly operated by MTA Long Island Bus (now Nassau Inter-County Express) that are now operated under contract to Nassau County by Veolia Transportation (now Transdev).

Past fleet[edit]

Current active fleet[edit]

All buses are fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. All buses are 102 inches (2.59 meters) wide. Buses run on diesel fuel unless noted otherwise (in the "Builder and model name" column).
