One year after the last of the seven private bus companies was taken over by the MTA Bus Company, the city agency has announced changes for two of the routes on which Rockaway passengers rely - the Limited Q113 and Q35.

Beginning this past Monday, The Q113, which runs between Seagirt Avenue and Jamaica, began running an expanded schedule for the Limited Q113, formerly known as the Q113 Express.

Previously, the Q113 Limited ran on weekdays in the morning and evening rush hours only. The new schedule has the limited bus also running on Saturdays.

The Limited Q113 will make its first run of the day, leaving Beach 20 and Seagirt Avenue at 6:30 a.m. and its last run will begin at 8:13 p.m. During most of the day, it will run every 20 minutes, except during rush hours. The local Q113 will continue to run every 20 minutes, with some exceptions during rush hours.

In addition, the limited now will run on Central Avenue between the Nassau Expressway and Mott Avenue.

Below are the new stops for the Limited Q113:

Changes for the Q35, which runs from Beach 116 Street and Newport Avenue to near Brooklyn College at Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues, took effect on March 4.

Intermediate stops along Flatbush Avenue have been reduced to provide faster service to passengers going to and from the Brooklyn College terminus at the intersection of Flatbush and Nostrand Avenues. The 2 and 5 subway lines and the B6, B11, B41, B44 and B103 bus routes also serve that area.

Passengers are advised to take the B41 local bus to intermediate stops on Flatbush Avenue. Riders heading to Rockaway Park will now board the Q35 on Flatbush Avenue.
