  1. Past hour
  2. 7287, 4572 loan(s) to Flatbush for the day. Working the B41.
  3. Hello, Please any one received Retest Drug emails.. I just wonder about my current status ,not yet receive any updates after 90days Drug test. I am trying to reach the number at there office no response yet,the manager is on vacation,I am in the Rank List for 85.?/ If any one knows please HELP...
  4. Yeah. Similar to the XD40 order with the SBS 7600s coming first, and then jamaica taking in the 7400s and 7500s. FWIW 6234 is putting around Queens too, but I suppose that doesn’t really count since that’s part of the MTAB batch
  5. Today
  6. Oh wow I under the impression that this was being rolled borough by borough, subway line by subway line.
  7. Can you tell me a bit about the shifts and days off situation ?
  8. Interesting.... they number them in whatever order they feel like, I guess
  9. 244 has been Repainted in the New Scheme currently on the Newer MCI D + J series buses. Looks brand new.
  10. As well as Westchester Sq & underground stations on the line.
  11. Two things: 1. The m96 is shockingly fast off peak! Both sides of the park too... Never rode a crosstown bus (well, there’s this absolutely nutty M23+ driver that can do 7 ave to lexington in 4 minutes somehow but we won’t talk about him lmao). The only thing this route needs is all door payment frankly. 2. 3970 talks (not sure what it says, I’m listening to music) even though it’s rear screen is off. And though the front screen is on, it isn’t displaying any route info, rather it’s displaying some animated screensaver or something (ad????) for clever devices
  12. Im not saying any of those challenges precludes using it (in theory), what Im saying is each of those hinderances adds a cost, whether it be more crews to allow breaks and lunches, paying crews to stage trains early or bring them back to Jamaica etc. The MTA isnt just a service for riders, it serves everyone in the city, including the taxpayers. When that comes up against a schedule that is possible and meets baseline cost, there's no way the (mta) won't do that. Coupled to the fact that people will complain about losing out on a 1 seat ride on a holiday. Not a favorable scenario. Personally I think the MTA was traumatised out of using QP as a terminal, they wouldn't allow the to terminate there on Nights and Weekends when traffic was low. They even pulled the Holiday train to 2nd Ave denying tourists and fans a high speed run. All to avoid that terminal, I'm not sure if express trains can arrive when a local is crossing to D5. There arent even supplements to turn at QP so that bridge is burned.
  13. Press conference right now in Midtown with The Governor, Chair- Pat Foye, and Cy Vance (Manhattan DA) in regards to Fare Evasion. Coverage Courtesy: CBSN- New York: https://newyork.cbslocal.com/live/ - Some highlights to include deploying up to 500 officers from the branches of NYPD, MTA Police and Bridge and Tunnels. I believe I stated seeing something in regards to PAPD. However, that is not the case at this time. So no PAPD deployment. - 40 Million dollars is being put into this program. No taxpayer dollars are being used. Per Cy Vance (Manhattan DA) - Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North are also experiencing issues with Fare Evasion and programs to combat that will be introduced later on- Per Pat Foye (Chairman) - Governor just made a mention that NYS Police will be deployed into Subway stations... Right Now: GCT/Penn/Atlantic-Pacific have NYS police presence.
  14. This isn't on a borough by borough approach. This will gradually make it onto the entire Bus Fleet by October 2020 if everything is on schedule.
  15. Let me know if you figure it out, trying to do the same.
  16. I used the OMNY reader at 28th street a few days ago for the first time and I have to say that it’s very convenient. I accidentally forgot my debit card at home so being able to pay for the train from my phone really helped. Too bad Queens buses don’t have them yet, but hopefully they are next after Staten Island.
  17. Who did you speak to about putting you into elevator? I was initially supposed to be in elevator but for some reason they changed me to power. I'm trying to get this situation all sorted out since that's initially why I took the job.
  18. He works in the Bronx side, can't really give his name. Since you seem to know alot, would it be difficult to be set up in The Bronx? I know you don't really get to choose but I don't think The Bronx is a very desirable station for most people.
  19. Here is the first of several posts on ADA accessibility from the 1990s. Enjoy. It shows how slowly we are going-it was the plan.

  20. You worry too much about non-revenue hours.... I mean really, it's enough that the BxM3 serves SW Yonkers,.... There's no need for the BxM1/2 to serve Yonkers, just because the depot they run out of itself is in Yonkers.....
  21. Well in reality for Teens it wouldn't do anything, cuz they wouldn't pay on a regular trip anyway.
  22. Some folks on here keep asking questions that can be answered just by reading the original exam application. MTA has a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol. Read the Exam#8611 application. "Drug Screening Requirement: You must pass a drug screening in order to be appointed and if appointed, you will be subject to random drug and alcohol tests for the duration of your employment. Additionally, if you have tested positive on a drug or alcohol test or had a refusal to test during pre-employment or while employed by a Federal DOT-regulated employer during the applicable period, you must have completed the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) process required by federal law in order to be appointed to this safety- sensitive position."
  23. The just has to step up and take over the service. This is something they should've ratted out in August 2018 when they launched the redesign. I either see these routes being cut, or taking over them in the future. The lack of Amenities, USB Charging, WIFI, OMNY, Bus Time is something that also affects customers who need to be somewhere, and this should be something everyone should be fighting and petitioning for, of course the isn't perfect, but it'll be much better than what is being dealt with now. This is something the has to step on to the plate for, and they are right on time. Also another factor of ridership decline besides the unreliability is also the fact that under the redesign there's other alternatives and I would understand the people rushing away from the SIM23/SIM24 for based alternatives, because someone wouldn't put it with crappy buses, no tracking information, lack of amenities, and sub-par service. This is something that has to be done, it is still early for change.
  24. Does anybody know what the highest list number reached was that made it in for this current class?
  25. The MTA's New OMNY Scanners Have Cameras In Them (But They're Not Watching You, Yet) https://gothamist.com/2019/06/14/omny_scanners_cameras.php MNY, the MTA's new tap-to-pay system being piloted at 16 subway stations and on all Staten Island bus routes, has exceeded the MTA's forecasts during the first week of operation, with tens of thousands of riders opting to use a digital wallet or contactless credit card instead of their MetroCard. OMNY is scheduled to be rolled out across the entire subway and bus system, and on commuter railroads, to ultimately replace the MetroCard and usher in a new era of commuting ("new" for New York, anyway). However, you may not have known that the scanners contain a camera, along with infrared illuminators, situated at the kiosk's base. A tipster pointed them out to us, noting that they spotted the "small laptop style hidden camera" and illuminators, and wondered if they were used for "infrared based facial recognition to obtain a clearer image of the face." "The camera and illuminators in the OMNY validators are only in place to support future use of bar code and QR code for ticketing; they cannot and do not support biometrics of any kind," said Steve Brunner, general manager, New York Tri-State Region, for Cubic Transportation Systems.
