Why Isn't The Q35 A "Limited" Line?

Posted by nh153 on Mon Apr 15 00:48:00 2019

The Q35 is a local in Queens. But once it goes over the Marine Parkway Bridge, it only makes limited stops in Brooklyn, along Flatbush Avenue. You might say, it shouldn't be a limited if it makes all local stops in Queens. But the M5 is a limited route, even though it makes all local stops from 72nd Street to the George Washington Bridge.

The Q35 also has an odd timetable. Starting at 8:30 pm Brooklyn-bound and at 10 pm Queens-bound, it runs on a half hour schedule. It keeps that same half hour schedule overnight.

If a route is important enough to give it 30 minute service overnight, I wonder why it also has 30 minute service in the evening too? The handful of NYC buses that run every half hour overnight usually have more frequent service in the evening, maybe every 10-15 minutes. It is the only mass transit way to get directly from The Rockaways to Brooklyn. But does that warrant 30 minute overnight service?
