The Metropolitan Transportation Authority operates a number of bus routes in the Bronx, New York, United States. Many of them are the direct descendants of streetcar lines (see list of streetcar lines in the Bronx). All local buses are operated by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority, a subsidiary of New York City Transit Authority, except for the Bx23, operated by the MTA Bus Company.

Seven Metro-North Railroad feeder routes are run by the brand name of Hudson Rail Link,[1] operated by Atlantic Express under contract. All of these routes are listed below.
