  1. Yeah I can confirm this as well...I was at Rockaway station today saw a ARTIC in training doing A dry run on the b82 route
  2. A portion of Hylan blvd going To/from Richmond Ave is brutal right now, I see your point about rough streets...I was told UP gave the novas a try but they decided to go with the new flyers I just wish Staten Island did the same for the new flyers
  3. For example Manhattanville. SI getting new buses I’m not aware of but I’m pretty sure they reaching that point where them Orion’s out of Castleton need to be put down I was just wishful thinking SI with a fleet of new flyers in every single depot (Of course not Meredith depot) would be awesome
  4. Mainly the design of how many passengers can fit on the bus I feel that little section behind the driver should not Have that one seater but instead made it a standing section, Oh and let’s not talk about how the mirrors are poorly mounted On the bus to see your reference point...maybe it’s just me or I’m just a new flyer lover since I been driving those since I was in Atlanta
  5. Can someone explain to me why Staten Island is the only depots with no new flyers? The novas are so bad... the guys and me were cracking jokes during the train shuttle, you know when it’s a SI bus when you see a nova
  6. Hey guys Can a O/A BO attend a TA union meeting and vice versa and if so do they still have the rights (like voting?) I’m just asking because on the union website the calendar shows two separate dates monthly for meetings for O/A & T/A BO’s I figure since the dates are posted like that ,they want the respected authorities to attend their meeting dates. I’m a O/A BO who works out of a TA DEPOT (ULMER PARK) I attend the OA MEETINGS Monthly But today I was thinking of attending the TA Meeting just to get a update on contract talks
  7. To piggy back on what Natalie said it best you get your CDL license now it will be less stress on you and you won’t be rushed.....if you go in with just your permit you will have to worry about passing your 10 day training (which is really a pain) then if you do pass the 10 day training you now have to pass the road test..if you were to fail the road test (I believe you get two chances) your disqualify from MTA...as to if you get your CDL on your own time you can take the road test and not have to worry about passing or failing on the first try
  8. Yes they do have a pension plan...Long story short T.A can work in any depot o.A can only work in manhattan Bronx Brooklyn so if you wanna work in queens or Staten go with the TA
  9. Seven eleven! My guy! How you man I’m this close to coming to Staten Island to your depot..but yeah that’s the thing no rep here at my depot (M-ville) know for sure how it goes one told me I have to start over another told me I just sign separation papers from O/a to t/a and go on with my day I was looking for threads on this but can not find one
  10. @DrewMania @+Young+ maybe you guys know this question or know the thread to DIrect me too requarding the process and steps in separating from O/A and becoming T/A I Keep hearing conflicting situations I just want to know do I have to wait like a Pre hire or once my list number is establish I can file my separation papers at 180?
  11. What depot you out of? Is it quill because when I went to pick that depot was close and the vets was like yeah they close because everybody jump ship and picked out to quill for the L shuttle! Lol
  12. I’m not sure who ask the question about taking the boss test again for mabstoa but yes you do O/A and T/A B/O ARE from different factions under MTA
  13. QUESTION 43!!!! I memorize that question and I will be down at 180 to protest in JAN.
  14. Months start counting from the date you was found guilty...what kind of ticket was it? One ticket should not get you denied unless you already had one then 4 points on your license
  15. First thing first what’s your main goal? Whatever your main goal is base it around that..if you can’t stand the people on the bus then go to train (one of the main reasons why I wanted to switch over as well) I have two friends and both are conductors they love the fact that they don’t have to deal with what we go through: lyft uber dollar cabs taxis trucks ups fed ex sanitation all trying to cut us off on the road just to catch a light a fare or etc. Only thing that’s annoying is when they get to the EOL they have to wake up the homeless people that are sleeping in the car....pick your poison there are pro’s and con’s with both sides,I felt the same way (as I stated before) but I made the choice to just stay in buses why? Well because my main goal is to be promoted and make more money/work less (another words work smart not hard) yes T/O make more then B/O and B/O make more and top out more then train conductors and T/O don’t have to deal with customers like us B/O but we can move up to dispatchers getting paid $46/hr (don’t quote me not the exact amount but I’m 100% sure that’s the top pay) now you know what they do, they be at their post on the corner or in their car giving us short signs or go dark to the relief point other then that they do nothing they deal with no customers and they get paid more,granted you can move up to from C/R to tower control T/O assistant dispatcher and not deal with customers but since you already in the door the next level is just around the corner!that’s my wisdom to you... oh and I’m not sure the person name (and I don’t feel like scrolling through the threads lol) but to defer all you have to do is just go down to 180 in person with your PE letter signed and checked “decline” they will make a copy of the letter..keep in mind you can only defer three times out the length the list was established, and when ever you do decide to accept the offer you got to wait until a opening is available but before that you have to inform the HR rep that’s in charge of C/R hiring im pretty sure you know who that is (if not her name is Ms.Vargas)...good luck to everyone and just have patience
