Actually, the "double fare" also applied on bus routes. All of the bus routes in the Rockaways had fare zones. The zone boundaries were located at 165th Avenue (Nolan's Avenue) & Cross Bay Boulevard, Brooklyn approach to Marine Parkway bridge, Beach 84th Street & Beach Channel Drive, and Beach 85th Street or Beach 95th Street & Rockaway Bach Boulevard (zone overlap). Additionally, there were no free transfers between routes Q11 and Q21, nor between routes Q21, Q22, and Q35. Initially, a full fare was required for each zone traveled, but in later years a full fare was required only for the first zone and a lower amount for each additional zone. Nonetheless, bus fares could be more expensive than subway fares because of both zone charges and lack of free transfers.
