New Jersey Transit Bus Operations is the bus division of New Jersey Transit, providing bus service throughout New Jersey, with many routes going to New York City and Philadelphia.

Prior to the creation of New Jersey Transit, public transportation in New Jersey was the responsibility of the Public Service Coordinated Transport Company, which was originally the Public Service Railway division of the Public Service Corporation of New Jersey until it was spun off when PSNJ was divided into two entities in 1948: Public Service Electric and Gas Company, and PSCT. PSCT provided service throughout New Jersey, originally using trolleys and then transitioning to Trolley Cars, Trolley Buses, and Motor Buses. During the 1970s, the New Jersey Department of Transportation began subsidizing the routes of Public Service, now renamed Transport of New Jersey (TNJ), contracting with TNJ and other companies to operate local bus service throughout New Jersey.

New Jersey Transit came into being as the result of the New Jersey Public Transportation Act of 1979 to "acquire, operate, and contract for transportation services in the public interest." New Jersey Transit Bus Operations, Inc. came into being the following year, when it acquired Transport of New Jersey. Other purchases and buyouts in the 1980s expanded the bus division of NJ Transit, including the acquisition of the Atlantic City Transportation Company in the early 1980s. The current version of NJ Transit Bus Operations, Inc. came into being in 1992, when NJ Transit Mercer, Inc., which was the successor to the former "Mercer Metro" operation in the Trenton and Princeton areas, was folded into NJ Transit Bus Operations as a subsidiary of NJ Transit Bus Operations.

Covering a service area of 5,325 square miles, NJ Transit is the nation's third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit, linking major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia. The agency operates a fleet of 2,027 buses, 711 trains and 45 light rail vehicles. On 236 bus routes and 11 rail lines statewide, NJ Transit provides nearly 223 million passenger trips each year.

This is a comprehensive depot assignment guide to the buses currently in passenger service with New Jersey Transit's Bus Operations and NJ Transit buses operated by Private Operators.
