    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Hi all, I am a High School senior in the Bronx and being a C/R has been one of my life long dreams. I would like to know what are the recent requirements to be eligible to take the exam. On my collage application i have signed up for almost all of the Community Collages here in the City and applied to be majoring in Tourism, Travel, and Hospitality, is 2 years of collage good enough for the exam and even the actual job? and is want i am gonna major in also enough? I know you need a High School diploma or GED, and also if there is a exam sometime in the next 2 years will i be eligible to take it even though i am still in Collage? I am so sorry if this question has been asked before but any other information will be gladly appreciated.

    The M finally has a 96th Street-2nd Av program! Going to 96th it says: M 96 ST-2 AV M MYRTLE AV LOCAL M 6 AV LOCAL/63 STREET The FIND box says: 6 Av Local 96 St-2 Av Via 63 St Coming back from 96th Street the outside sign says: M METROPOLITAN AV M VIA 63 ST/6 AV LCL M MYRTLE AV LOCAL The FIND box just says: 6 Avenue Local Metropolitan Av And for the announcement it is spliced from the announcement.

    That's because that set was involved in the Canarsie Yard incident in 2006 and it was OOS from the accident till December 2017 because of repairs. One of the cars still has half of the 2001 transfers on the strip map under 6th Av since the bottom half was ripped out for some reason then the transfer at Union Square has the 2010 sticker over it and has the original shown but a single sticker over <Q>. And also 8280 has the old evacuation decal on the wall.

    What is the most rarest catch you've ever gotten in the subway?

    Hi All!

    My name is John and i have always had a big interest in the NYC Subway system and love exploring and riding the subway! I love to also model the NYC Subway with Legos and model subway cars! My favorite type of cars on the subway are the R46 and R68/A (i love the 75 footers!!) because of the seating arrangement, the sound they make going over a switch or track joint (the THUMP...., THUMP.... THUMP... ,THUMP) and their uniqueness in the subway system! i can not wait to make some new friends on here! and share my love with the subway with you guys! PS, I have an Instagram where i post rare things i find in the subway system and just stuff i like, my Instagram is called nyc_subway_fanatic_16 if you guys are interested!
