    Since DCAS and MTA separated how do you apply for transit jobs now. I've been trying to figure out a way to apply for the bus operator and traffic checker positions but to no avail. August 3rd is the filing date for both...thanks in advance.

    You have to register first, on the top right hand side click here to register.

    https://exam.nyct.co...&NY_CGW_Type=E


    $61.00 non refundable application fee.
    There is no "test" per se.

    They will assign you a random list number.

    Applicants will be notified of their list number by mail within 8
    weeks of the application deadline and will be canvassed in order of
    their random list number to participate in the Bus Operator Selection
    Survey process.

    There is no education or work experience requirements by the way.
    You don't have to be a NYC resident to apply.

    How much was the fee for the last MTA Bus or Mabstoa exam?
    Safe bet that the next NYCTA B/O exam for next year will raise
    it's fee(it was $40.00 for the 2008 exam).

    You and I filed among many others from the 8006 list.
    It's always good to have a back up just in case.

    We should get our list numbers in the mail before the end of September.

    Who cares what they do with the money, it's beyond our control anyway.
    The last MTA Bus exam was on 2007, so it's that time again.

    maxamillion: With DCAS some exams waived the fee if you could prove
    that you are unemployed, but this is the MTA now, I didn't read anything
    about it on the NOE. Best to call them and make sure.
