Jamaica Buses Inc. is a private bus company that operates out of Jamaica, New York. It originally came into existence in 1894 as the Long Island Electric Railway, or LIERy, which ran streetcars in Queens and Nassau Counties. LIERy went bankrupt in 1926, and the Queens streetcar lines were re-organized as the Jamaica Central Railways. Buses replaced the streetcars in 1933, and the company name was changed to Jamaica Buses.
