  1. Three questions:

    We would say "the one-seventeen" or the "nineteen", etc.

    Since most cities have only one City Hall, "the" is not necessary, but is quite proper.

    Both 1 and 2 are correct. The number nineteen bus or the number one-seventeen bus. It is assumed you mean a bus, since taxicabs, etc., are nut numbered as buses are.
