April 15, 1957 - The Book of Service Changes
Manhattan, New York
Surface Transit, Inc.
Effective as of this date, service on the M-105 - Tenth Avenue line is reduced to one franchise trip a day.
Around or within this period, the frequency of service of two other routes of parent Fifth Avenue Coach Lines — FACO Division's 1 - Fifth Avenue and NYCO Division's 22 - Pitt and Ridge Streets — are likewise consigned to one trip daily.
All three routes will be discontinued on March 1, 1962, due to a strike.
