  1. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Damm. Spring Creek is inheriting the West Farms and now Gleason fleet. Spring Creek has good maintenance so these buses will be in good care.
  2. MTA Bus F/T B/O Exam # 7300

    Pre-trip can be a bit difficult. However, if you know your stuff. You will pass. BE CONFIDENT, And PRAY. Once you get into the club. Don't commit any silly moving violations or get into an accident. Lastly, NO DRINKING and DRIVING. You will have a great career with a CDL.
  3. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I don't know if Queens Village has adequate space to place artics or if the depot is even constructed to handle 60ft buses. I also don't know if SBS is the right idea for the Q88. Right now SBS is like the saving tool for the city to just slap SBS on every line. So for the Q88. It just needs more buses on the rush hour and mid-day side of things to cover the overcrowding. Queens Boulevard will have a dose of SBS beginning on 11/12 with the Q52/53. Just want to see how this going to turn out
  4. Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    Took the bus operator test. Questions were a bit tricky. However, it was straight forward. Good luck to everyone that took the test. Took mine at Midwood- 10/15 at 2:30PM. Left at 5:50. Sat in room 353. Test proctor was cool. However, there was a pesty a**hole with a radio and kept walking in and out of the classroom we called top flight.

    You are absolutely right. Didn't know that Nassau was giving $4M to the state. That's pretty shocking news. Yet again that's Nassau being cheap.
  8. Rally to bring back and improve B71

    Okay. I got a chance to skim through this and I will say this. As a current Crown Heights Resident now. It's needed to have another bus route along with the B45/B65 corridor. This B71 proposal can hopefully bring some reliability issues. I see that they want to end at the children's museum and travel down St. John's Place following the B45. Only thing i would possibly change is have the 71 travel down Bergen to Vanderbilt with direct to Grand Army Plaza into Union thus avoiding the gridlock along Eastern Parkway. Just don't like the St. John's Place traffic and it tends to get tight at time Another thing, I agree with B35 on the lines of keep this intra-borough only. Downtown/Red Hook/Carroll Gardens/Park Slope/Crown Heights. Although, people want a South Ferry to Brooklyn line. You have the train for direct access to the ferry. I see potiential with this new route if marketed CORRECTLY. As for control of this route i say: East New York. However, if it's scheduled to have good run times than back to Gleason it goes.

    That doesn't make sense. 5917 should of went to Manhattan. The obviously 🙄 doesn't like to keep the set of numbers at the same depot. An example like this where as both buses could of went to OH. Since OH has 5910-5916. Im only guessing this is for mileage purposes.
  10. MTA Bus F/T B/O Exam # 7300

    Yep. Taking the BOSS for MABSTOA. Haven't gotten my list # yet for MABSTOA. Sign up for Track Operator. I already have a Class B Commerical with Pass Endorsement and airbrakes. However, I want the driving jobs as a track op.
  11. MTA Bus F/T B/O Exam # 7300

    Got my notice. 11/2 @ 11 AM. Downtown Brooklyn. Chance 1 of 4 with the BOSS exam.
  12. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Ahh copy copy. Just the thought of taking express bus from Queens to Manhattan just gives me the creeps simply b/c most buses take the LIE to the Tunnel and not Queens Boulevard for the 59th Street Bridge Lower Roadway when there are traffic woes. Sometimes, you just gotta wonder are there any short cuts to get to the tunnel
  13. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    The really needs to come back to bring some order to NICE service. Why is it every year there's massive cuts in service. Out of all the routes that serviced under Long Island bus were either streamlined or eliminated due to carelessness in the Magano administration to save money. i know me saying this will not do anything for Long Island to have the back. However, it has to be noted that NICE is not doing a good job with the bus service they have in hand.
  14. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Damm. On a Tuesday Morning. I can only guess that the 59th street bridge is going to be a standstill for the AM rush.
  15. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    That I'm not very positive if they are using that depot. However, one would think the county executive was trying to cut costs. You see the results. I know a few NICE bus drivers and when it comes to the pay. It's not great. But when you have family and you gotta sacrifice with what you have.
