Documents, Rulebooks, Maps and More...
Over the years I have been collecting maps, rulebooks and other documents
related to the history of the New York City Transit System as well as other
rail and transit networks. Much of what I have collected with respect to the
Brooklyn Manhattan Transit Corporation (BMT) is either
included in the book that I am selling through Amazon or posted onBMT-Lines.com. On this
site I will be posting the material that does not otherwise fit either in
the book or on the BMT site. Check back often as I have a lot of material to
scan and will be adding to this menu. Menu items that are not hyperlinked
are "coming soon".

Board of Transportation of the City of New York
The Board of Transportation of the City of New York operated the Independent Subway System from 1930 - 1940. In 1940 it assumed control over the former IRT and BMT lines that had been taken over by the city government in that year. Although the three systems had merged, they continued to be operated as separate divisions. The Board of Transportation continued in existence until it was replaced by the New York City Transit Authority in 1958.
