Re: Original q30-31 routing

According to the Motor Coach Age Queens issue (April-May 1977) the Q-17A (today's Q-30) was re-routed via Utopia Parkway as of July 15, 1974. There is no mention of the change in the Q-31 description but it must have been on the same date.

Actually, the 1965 timetable map shows the Q-31 running on Utopia Parkway both ways while the eastbound Q-17A turned off Utopia onto Fresh Meadow Lane to Horace Harding. Westbound it ran from Horace Harding to Utopia to 64th Avenue to 174th Street then onto Fresh Meadow Lane and back to Utopia. It's surprising that this awkward routing lasted as long as it did.
