Amboy Bus is one of several subsidiaries of the parent company Atlantic Express Transportation Group. Others heard by name on the repeater system are K. Corr Bus, which handles Farmingdale Schools and Bethpage, and Raybern Bus Service handling Plainedge and vicinity.

The companies run on a three frequency LTR system:

LCN 1: 452.01250
LCN 5: 452.36250
LCN 9: 452.43750

There are no frequencies currently assigned to LCN's 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 or 8. LCN 5 is subject to adjacent channel interference from another station -12.5KHz away at 452.3500MHz.

The following talk groups have been heard on this LTR system:

0-01-006 Oceanside Base
0-05-100 K. Corr Base (Farmingdale Schools and Bethpage Schools)
0-05-200 Raybern Base (Plainedge Schools)
0-09-025 Massapequa Base
0-09-150 East Meadow Base

Dispatchers ARE NOT consistent in the identification of their base. For example, 0-05-100 has identified itself as "K. Corr Base" when calling radio repair but also references "Bethpage Drivers". 0-05-200 has referenced "Raybern Drivers". 0-01-006 has consistently called itself "Oceanside Base".
