Every brand of tire has different pressure recommendations, as does every bike. That said, that's about right for those tires on most bikes for street riding. I'd drop a couple pounds from the rear tire for sporty riding.

36/42 only for rider plus passenger. Which is also strange going from 30 (rider only) to 42 (rider plus passenger), 12 psi difference.
