    Bus Operator (TA) Exam #9604

    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

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    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

    New Uniforms for MTA B/O's

    I’ll appreciate that a few of my guys here at MTV went to Kingsbridge to pick up the shirts they said the rule is two to each driver and They Check you off by your pass number They could have been lying but what thy said they did was give them a random pass number...so when they come to our depot they will give them their real pass number and now they will have 4 shirts lol smh

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I’m OA(MaBSTOA)...boss exam is only for TA (NYCTA) BUS Operators...the process is the same as conductor only thing difference is you don’t have to do that booklet that’s consider “homework” Yup everything...it was frustrating going to 180 early in the morning then wait 4-6 hours just to get your name call...but it will be worth it

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Sorry but you are going to have to do everything all over again speaking from experience with my hiring process for exam 4105 (bus operator) reason being is the employment history expires as well everything has a expiration date only thing I did not have to do over was fingerprinting and hearing test reason being: it is good for a year
