Re: Transfer mystery

So far my best guess is that GBL wanted to be a part of any commuter itinerary involving both Queens Blvd and the Rockaways, and was just cutting its losses that they themselves didn't have a direct connection from Jamaica to Far Rockaway.

Figuring that their riders would end up (unfortunately) on the Q113 or LIRR anyway, GBL probably wanted to "stay relevant" by not charging another fare at the "other end" of the Q113 / LIRR. Keep your GBL transfer from one end and use it on the other end. So at least you're not paying 3 or more fares.

All speculation though.
