  3. Today in school car we are walking the tunnels and will let a train bypass us lol for those that are waiting to be called and or start for conductor , I just want to say this. Take everything you think you know about transit/being a conductor and crumble it throw it away lol I’ve been in school car a few weeks and what an experience this has been LOL just a heads up depending on the division you choose, you will be doing classes at each train yard all over the 5 boroughs. you’re going to be going learn how to cross the tracks and third rail properly, climb up on the R68 train (it’s the hardest one to climb, so you if can’t do it, you can’t continue. Google R68 train to get an idea) you’re not only going to walk on the catwalk on the elevated tracks but also cross it and let a train bypass you which was by far the most terrifyingly fun experience ever lol if you’re scared of heights, don’t look down and when a train bypass you, make sure you stand up straight and don’t lean forward for obvious safety reasons lol also one more thing, at the beginning, once you split into classes, everything is going to seem too much/anxiety inducing and or confusing at first but trust me, it gets so much easier once you’re in the train yards and on each actual train learning! It’s not hard at all, especially if you study and read what they tell you. My favorite parts so far has been the road operations which we got to practice on an R179 new tech train on an actual train line. We went down the A/C line from Dyckman Street to Euclide Avenue and back, practicing opening doors and making manual announcements at each stop. (No customers on, wait to you see their angry faces) Good luck!! This will be fun for most!!

  5. Um, well I'm not vaccinated, and I did my medical and final processing this past friday and they gave me a slip that asks if you if you either been vaccinated, or not, or not for religious beliefs. I selected no and when the doctor asked me about it I said if its mandatory ill do it, im not going to due to my religious beliefs. The doctor said that he feels its going to be mandatory in the future. Who knows if theyll require it, but governer cuomo said that starting labor day, you either have to have it or get tested and have a negative result every week. hopefully this answers your question.

  6. After you qualify, you start equipment training and attend more classrooms at Zerega. You also attend union hall day, where they try to upsell you tons of stuff. Just say no. During line training there is no “qualification day” however each line trainer does complete an evaluation sheet on your performance. After to qualify you’re pretty much set as long as you keep doing as trained. Two hands on the wheel, don’t run lights, no speed trap tickets, etc.

  7. Ok, So after qualifying on either Day 7, 9, or 10.....Is there any other thing after those three days that we must do? Is there any qualification day during Line Training? BTW, I have my CDL License so I dont have to do the road test.

  8. You can schedule an appointment and take care of everything there. But I went to the DMV in manhattan on 31st street across from the big post office and Morgan P&DC (post office). I schedule for my CDL permit test and renewed my DL right then an there. Just fill out the forms and have your passport, birth certificate, phone bill etc. The permit test is $10 for everything, (general knowledge and other endorsement test if taken on the same day) $5 each if you take them separately.

  9. As far as how much it cost to renew a permit, if I had to take an educated guess, it will probably be a normal transaction fee ($12.50) plus the fees for each and every multiple choice test ($5.00 for each one) if you have to retake them. As far as the second question, if I had to take an educated guess, it probably depends on how busy they are. Although I am not going to the DMV tomorrow, I just played around with this website and there are still appointments available at the three closest DMV locations to my residence in Queens. Good luck!!

  10. They do this because of the limitation with the Mosholu interlocking south of 149 on the Bronx Park level and the merge from the Bronx Park which affects the train. The cause is further up north at the Jackson Avenue interlocking on the Bronx Park side. There was a time that the train bypassed 138 as well, but that was later given to the train to do. It is just not ideal because all the stops north of 149 on the train have more passenger volume.

  11. It's to avoid train traffic with incoming # trains stopping at the station. Avoiding bunching from one another.

  12. No hope for the useless Laguardia Airtrain which means that we can possibly extend the Astoria Line instead. Today is a great day.

  15. Yeah I basically do all my keto stuff with homecooking. The pre-made stuff is just too much. And I just got the email to go in for medical this Thursday to be considered for the Aug 30th class. And of course the nervousness of that and the paperwork is making my blood pressure spike like I'm sure it will be in the waiting room that day. I'm debating breaking keto and picking up some bananas and other foods that are supposed to help with blood pressure just for these next few days.

  16. When they’re are ready, you will be notified by mail with an admission to when to come to take the BOSS (Bus Operator Selective Survey) exam. As far as school goes, this is a full-time position that requires a minimum of 40+ hours a week. Schedules are based on routes and run you either pick or random timing if you’re on the extra list. Being a probation operator or less time on the job, your hours most likely will be late schedules. 12pm, 2pm, 3 pm to midnight.

  18. I'm almost certain they are not testing for ketones. I did the medical before and it seemed like a sugar test. Uncontrolled diabetes means sugar in the urine. I was in a state of ketosis when I did the medical and I passed. How's the keto diet working for you?

  19. Yep, I got a taste of what's to come. The units were 8719 (Yukon), 8259 (Charleston), 8208 (The unit I rode for the S46, Castleton), 8716 (Castleton), 8295 (Yukon), 8604 (Yukon), 8593 (Yukon) and 8249 (Castleton).
