    I was looking at upcoming exams and wondered what a traffic checker does.
    The exam is listed as Traffic Checker (MaBSTOA). Thanks for any help you can provide.

    From what I heard, they ride a bus and check ridership by counting passenger (traffic) that enters the bus.

    Note that MaBSTOA (Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority) applies to the those two boroughs. Which is where you the traffic checker will occur.

    Mark Traffic Checking is a Citywide operation and they are located off of Flatbush Avenue Extension in Brooklyn I use to hold that position it's alright for someone right out of High School going into College as it is a Part-Time position they are all over the place doing surveys in all five Boroughs including the Subways & SIRTOA

    They are apart of Operations Planning and thus their surveys determine which lines get additional service or a decrease in service based on ridership

    Thanks man! I'm actually thinking about applying for this since I did not get called for C/R (2008 exam).

    Although it maybe citywide, why is it indicated under MaBSTOA?

    Second, if I apply to this would it be possible to still be eligible to take a promotion to C/R or anything non-bus related? Especially since I heard you can't do that thru MaBSTOA.. While others says you can since its now under RBO.

    Your welcome Mark that's a good ? that unfortunately I don't have the answer to but I'm guessing because MaBSTOA is a subsidiary of New York City Transit they have jurisdiction and TA doesn't have a Traffic Checker title they also do Surveys over at (MTA) Bus Company as well

    To answer your second ? I don't want to tell you yes and the answer turns out to be wrong the only good answer I can give you is to call down to livingston street and talk to someone in Human Resources or Call the Business Service Center
