    MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    There were no hiring freeze. I have about probably 9 to 12 students at my depot doing line training. Also I have seen training buses for the past weeks. I believe Livingston were trying to catch up with people who previously was suppose to been started which probably caused delays on others who already did drugs and medical processes.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    A few dispatchers stated that the MTA is planning to purchase an abandoned yard located in Bushwick Brooklyn as an Depot for the L shuttle bus services. Thats one of the reason we have another System pick taking place again before April 2019.

    MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    I have spoken to two Dispatchers and Road Operation Superintends regarding hiring freeze and they all stated they need as much Operators on board before April 2019 due to the L train service shut down especially for Brooklyn and Manhattan Divisions. Even operators who are currently on the "Eligible" Promotion list to become dispatcher will be moving forward before April 2019. They stated that the system needs 400+ more operators. Yesterday I saw a training bus near my home, so that tells you they're still hiring, just might be a delay for certain Titles division (TA,OA, or MTA Bus).

    Actually every operator is suppose to operate the bus at a safe speed 15 - 20 mph. But some operators take a chance.

    MaBSTOA #4105 Hiring Process

    OA Operators are only allowed to pick within Manhattan, Bronx and Respective TA Depot in Brooklyn. For vacation pick, you will be giving a time and date to pick your vacation days, but if you’re still in probation you may be eligible for a certain days like (2 - 4) days of vacation availability. You should ask your Chairman/Vice union for more information. Picking out of a depot while still in probation is a choice. Always make a wise move that will benefit you. When I was in Probation I had the chance to pick out and headed to where I wanted to go. Nothing changes as far your status but just a different environment and staff.

    The updated XD’s we’re receiving drives soooooooooo smooth. No jerking like the 2015 versions, and the steering mechanism is smoother.

    B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    MTA is manage by the state which is why its listed as State officials. But not to be off topic, I read an article a couple of days ago regarding should the city take control over MTA since many people were not satisfied with the way Albany is handling MTA.

    B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    Im pretty sure they’ll call you. As much Operators are needed is high demands. The more that comes, the more promotions are taken place.

    General SBS Discussion

    If you pay for an SBS ticket and get on the local instead, the operator suppose to honor it. You paid your fare respectively. DOT and NYPD needs to help us out but it doesn’t looks like things will change unless the Mayor say something.

    General SBS Discussion

    I believe that bus was involved in a collision. When I was heading to work, I noticed a sedan door turned the opposite way. The ambulance , NYPD and MTA supervisions was at the scene.

    MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    Information from members on this forums are accurate. Majority of us are in the system and went through the entire process. When members gives their suggestions, its best to listen since some of us are already employed and went through the transition process. Countless time from past different exams it has been mentioned to not to quit daily jobs until you officially pass the training process. I understand what happened this week made candidates excited that they were about to become part of the family. 180 Livingston doesn’t controls who gets hired or not. They’re there to process you in and prepare you to the next level getting employed. Let me make this clear, they’re are the first step to process you in HR level to see whether or not you fit to move forward to the training process. The two final stage becoming part of the family officially is Passing the 7 - 10 training stage. Making it through the One year probationary period. So my advice for everyone here is to carefully listen and read pasted other members experiences just so you understand the transition steps.
