  1. Stay safe and make sure to not let your guard down with this COVID.
  2. Whats going on folks. Its been a hot minute since I have posted on the nyct forum. Was on quarantined status and now I'm fully back to work. B41 today had 2 wild cats service where Articulated buses were in service doing passenger pickups from Kings plaza to Downtown Brooklyn and to Bergen Beach. Expect to see articulated buses at certain time of the day when operation expects more rider ships during certain time peak.
  3. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh keep it on the low low .. lol
  4. Totally Faster and better! This week has been the best time of my career to work freely and not worry to much about the schedule. I mean its sooooo hard to stay on the time that its to the point we all keep pulling over to try to delay the time because majority of us are way ahead of schedule.....
  5. Congrats!!!! If you can please P.M. so i can get a little detail to the roads they took you guys. Once again Congrats and welcome to the family!, Tomorrow most likely you will meet up with others who qualified Day 7 to learn other Buses type. The ones that did not qualify on day 7 will continue with another Supt for training and etc...
  6. LOL we sure don't play.... We even made our own blockage beside the transit chain links.. We took the W/C seat belts strap and hook it across the other side W/C seat belt clips to form it like an "X" shape or just ran one across the lower level of the chain links just so if any passenger is trying to sneak underneath the chain, they wont be able to fully unless you're flexible. I'll tell you from an operator point, It feels so great to not have anyone boarding the front of the bus and really feel secured.
  7. I Just want to confirm the rear door boarding process which temporary starts effectively tomorrow March 23, 2020. All local/Limited buses only will allowed passengers to board/un-board through the back door with free of charge. The only passengers that will be allowed to board the front door is ADA passengers or passengers who are unable to board the rear door due to complication where they need the bus to kneel lower. For express buses passengers will still have to load through the front door and pay their fare but will not be allowed to sit at the first 3 front seats. Select Buses Service will do the same as local/limited buses service but will have to continue paying their fare by using the normal paying method and load at the rear doors. It also has been instructed due to the COVID-19 we are not allowed to load not more than 20 passengers "Which will be very hard to maintain". As a B41 Operator today we started the rear boarding a day earlier on the route and had buses either equipped with chain links or used the W/C seat belts to block off the area where passengers were not allowed temporary. As a operator point of view it made my day go a whole lot easier and quicker to maneuver down the routes. We shall see how will this turn out as the days follows during this crisis.
  8. Are there any class in session at the moment, if so what day are you guys on and when did the class start?.... Trying to see if that current class will be the last class temporary since the dept of buses is on emergency slow down due to the virus epidemic.
  9. It can take almost a year to even get a notification whether or not you passed or failed the "Selective Survey". While you wait if you don't have a CDL Class B with Passenger Endorsement you should try obtaining it and keep your license and background clean.
  10. Just want to share a thread on the NYCT forum on preparation training video on obtaining your CDL Class B/P DMV road test with the MTA. Follow and view the videos (((HERE)))
  11. No... just background such as criminal, employments.
  12. Any new operator that is about to take the DMV CDL road test soon with the MTA I found a Youtube training channel that was release a year ago by dept of buses. Click (((HERE))) to go to the thread page to view the videos and other information
  13. The New York City Transit Department of Buses establish training video that conduct "Department of Motor Vehicle Commercial Driver License" road test preparation. You can find more information regarding transit employment related (((HERE))) MTA Employment Opportunity (((HERE))) YouTube Channel: (((HERE))) MTA/NYCT Bus Operator Exams threads Bus Operator Exam 4600 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 4105 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 7105 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 7300 & 9309 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 7612 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 9100 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 9618 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 9604 (((HERE))) Bus Operator Exam 0100 (((HERE))) MTA CDL Training Pre-Trip Videos>>>>> CDL Pre-Trip 1 CDL Pre-Trip 2 CDL Pre-Trip 3 CDL Pre-Trip 5 CDL Training Video Pre-Trip Parking between cones MTA New York City Transit DMV road test training>>>>>> CDL Training Video - Driving 1 CDL Training Video - Driving 2 CDL Training Video - Driving 3
  14. The sbs units will be found only on the B2, B31 and B41 until they are changed into local scheme. I get them all the time on the B41 and it feels awesome pushing them on Flatbush Ave to downtown bklyn.
