LaGuardia Depot (Depot Code: LG) is one of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's 30 depots. It provides the buses for most of northwestern Queens' routes, as well as the Q53 and Q70 SBS BRT routes. Since the depot originally was used by Triboro Coach Corporation, it is currently operated by the MTA Bus Company. The depot used to host CNG buses (TMC RTS CNG and Orion V CNG vehicles), but on April 10, 2006, the CNG filling station exploded and caught fire, bringing an end to LaGuardia's CNG fueling capabilities. For years afterwards though, buses from College Point depot were loaned/used on LaGuardia Depot routes on a daily basis, though they were fueled at College Point.

Fleet

LaGuardia's fleet fluctuates weekly, with bus moves occurring very frequently. Therefore, it is impossible to always provide an up-to-date list of buses assigned to the depot. The following table will be updated if any important, notable, or numerous moves occur. Fleets are organized based on the order.
