For the sake of simplicity, consider a journey only between, say, Howard Beach and the Rockaways. By bus, it would have been a two-zone fare on a single bus route (route Q21). To Far Rockaway, it would have been either one three-zone fare (route Q21A) or two two-zone fares (Q21, then Q22). From Brooklyn to Far Rockaway there was no choice by having to pay two two-zone fares (Q35, then Q22). By the time the subway was extended to the Rockaways, its double fare was, at lease in some cases, less expensive than the bus.
