Anyone remember the Q21A, from Rockaway to East New York? I never rode it but I saw it on the rollsign of MTA Bus (ex-Green) GMC #5839. Came to the end of the line and had the bus op go thru all the readings actually.

 

Q21A BEACH 35 STREET ONLY

 

Q21A FAR ROACKAWAY

 

Q21A IRT SUBWAY NEW LOTS

 

Sounded like an interesting route, going along Linden Blvd to the (3) train. Must've had some good speed on Cross Bay and Linden.

Same goes for the B40 which is no more.

 

The Bx24 used to stop down the block from my house. it was a nice route, not too long, not a whole mess of people. I miss it.

 

the Q5A/AB/S: don't remember the routings for all of them but this was being discussed on Buschat

 

Q49: old Archer av shuttle when the El was being knocked down

I used to take the Bx31 everyday at Woodlawn - Neried Avenue, but now I take it at 233st to transfer to the Bx16 after the re-route to Katonah Avenue. Never been on other routes since the 16 and 31 was all I rode back then.

The old Bx54 started at the Simpson St. (2)/(5) station, and ran Southern, Bruckner, Bronx River, Story, White Plains, Westchester, Metropolitan. It ended at the Oval. It was discontinued in 1990.

I wonder if the display signs on the buses still show the old routes, if you punch in the proper code. For example, if you hit 3231 (which would be the Bx23), would it come up?
