    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    I took the promotional exam in 2015. Immediately after, I searched google and found a very useful resource here: https://www.nycsubway.org/wiki/Subway_Signals:_A_Complete_Guide Everything in this guide was more or less repeated in the induction manual. Save and study the information presented and get yourself a head start. Good luck!

  5. I heard this right now at Times Square: "There is no local service between 42nd Street and 125th Street. All are running express. No local service because of an unusual noise..." Maybe I...heard it wrong, but that's a new one...

    If you're going for pre-employment then no need to be worry and nervous unless you have things in your system. If its for your medical then hold hands in prayers. Lol

    SCT Proposals 2012-2013 Thread

    No problem. As far as my experiences with the route, it's mainly been on Saturdays, anywhere from, say, 11am to 2pm (either direction; from Whitman Mall or from LIRR Babylon)... Many moons ago though (when I had the free time for it), I also would embark on it, on weekdays, around the same timeframe (11am to 2pm)... The S29 was usually my go to (route) to get to Babylon whenever I used to ride the old full route of the N79 from Mineola to Whitman.... I find that the S29 moves at a better rate, on top of being more useful for more people,,,,
  12. Everyone wants optimal service obviously, but at the same time, some folks take things too far.... In laymens, people need to be careful for what they wish for. Off board payment should have been implemented & added to LTD service as an attempt of enhancing the already established service type, instead of introducing a (half-assed version of a) new service type to this city with that very improvement included.....

    Sorry B35 I was asking Catman. I must have not realized that I quoted you when I started my reply. Can I ask what time of day your experiences are with the S29? I only ask because I noticed a few times near the end of the day EBT seems to put a Spirit of Mobility on the S29.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    I'm sorry but why isn't Version 4 the standard on all buses?? Those things are 10x better than anything else we have. I watched a couple YouTube videos, as soon as the bus passes the stop, it announces the next stop, unlike Version 2 that delays until about a block away. These screens also announce the transfers at each stop and has very good pronunciation, unlike the other ones that are too robotic, with wrong pronunciation. These screens also announce service alerts posted on the MTA website. I don't get it, they're literally perfect. If you ride the college point routes you're basically set, it's just unfortunate that the C40LFs don't have USB ports. Take a look: much better than the ones on most buses.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    Are 5439 and 5443 2018 units? Not exactly sure since TTMG has them under "2018".
  18. Only thing I can think if us switches out of correspondence. Given the later update, I'm figuring the switch was cranked to normal and locked there.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    Rookies can’t choose to be in the yard, that’s a super senior job, or medical restriction gets you there. XL couldland you a yard job sometimes, XX could as well, but your more inclined to the road so you can learn more. You post yards and then become YX(not sure if they are using this term anymore), but basically you are learning the yard with, preferably seasoned train operator. Doesn’t always happen though. I’ve seen guys still on probation that have gotten a yard job for the day and they are working with YX. It’s mind numbing to be honest. After 3 months( when I was YX 5 years ago, we were the second class to be YX), you go back to school car and finish with that. Then you road post. After all is said and done and all finals and practicals are passed, you are thrown to the wolves. It’s such an awesome feeling😉😂😂😂

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Technically, they did have 5440, that bus was in service for a few weeks before going to the service center. 5441 & 5443 are the ones they legitimately never had yet.

    Bx9 SBS (Unofficial Plan, Study, Feedback)

    There are 31 N/B Bx9 buses leaving WF Between 7-10am Out of that 31 Only 2 short turn currently the 8:56 and the 9:19 AM those two make up about 6.4% of AM peak service so let's say you split the route and every other bus short turns now at 225-Bway that's 15 peak buses that aren't making the full trip to 262 and back down to 225th that's double the wait time for that part of the line simple math. Via Kingsbridge Ave,Via Baliey two detour options you also have two routes in Brooklyn that split even further from there local counterparts than what's being proposed here The B44 via Rogers and the B82 via Ave L. You can keep the route intact and bypass Broadway 240th-225th it's doable.
  23. For issues like this, call 911. As a supervisor (another system) it’s not my job to address this condition, not only do I not have any authority, but I have no was to protect my self if the person attacks me. And yes, it’s the same for TA supervisors.
  24. No, to do that would mean cutting through the floor of the tunnel. It’s not worth the cost.

    65 new flat cars for MTA

    Hopefully they work better than the last order of flats which didn’t like to stay on the rails.

    Bx9 SBS (Unofficial Plan, Study, Feedback)

    Local service will not be decreased for Riverdale, during rush hour only 20% of the runs in a week terminate at 225th street, the bus needs a viable detour because we can't put a "faster service" on a traffic prone street.
