I would suspect that the only passengers going all the way from one end of a line to the other would be Bronx or Queens passengers wanting to go to Coney Island. That was the reason why in 1954, the F which up until then ran to Church Av was taken off the Smith St Line and replaced by the D. The BMT already provided either a one seat ride or cross platform transfer from Queens to Coney Island but until the D was routed down the Culver Line, passengers from upper Manhattan or the Bronx had to change at places like 34/6 or Times Sq to access Coney Island bound trains.
