Queens Bus 2007 and 1980

Recommended Posts

Now its time to see and to compare the differences in service changes and additions between a current NYCT Queens (Jamaica) bus map and a 1980 NYCTA Queens (Jamaica) bus map.

 

The areas covered are Jamaica.

Wow talk about times have changed the B22, B53, B56 is now the Q24, Q54 and Q56. The (E) to 179th Street b/c Jamaica Center wasn't built yet. Q44's old route, Q17A is now the Q30

It's the x64 now. It seemed to have a diferent routing back then because if you look it doesn't continue on Liberty Av past Merrick Bl.

 

Okay I can understand why the Q79 was the Q12A back then but why was the Q30 called the Q17A and the Q83 called the Q3A? they didn't have any correlation to those routes.

MSBA became Long Island Bus. There were some old 600 Orion Vs which still had the MSBA decal on it.

pretty much all those SE Queens routes had single-digit route numbers, so I can understand the 3a/83 part of it...

 

...but the 30 being the 17a... I don't quite get that one either bro....

Here's some former private lines for the nostalgia fans.

Wait.... I just noticed this. I completely forgot the outer boroughs used to have 212 area codes!!
