  1. Bus Operator (TA) Exam 4600

    Actually Bus Operator exam 4600 is TA which is Brooklyn,Queens, and Staten Island Division the only TA depot in Manhattan was 126th st which is closed now here is the deal if you are TWU local 100 this where it gets confusing you are allowed to pick into OA depots when the GP is held and vice versa for OA operators if you decide during training that you want to transfer to Queens or Staten Island you would be represented by ATU 1056 Queens and ATU 726 Staten Island and you're there until you retire

    if you aren't quite sure the best way to go about it would be to call your old employer(s) ask for HR and ask to speak to someone about employment verification
  7. Bus Operator (TA) Exam 4600

    They implemented this rule in March whereas if there is a suspension on your abstract you won't go forward with pre-employment until the suspension falls off of the abstract in prior years this wasn't an issue this only pertains to Buses and not Subways from my understanding
  8. new B6 service pattern

    Very illogical move #1 all East New York bound Limited buses went local after Rockaway Parkway Station I still want to know what was the rationale behind this and why wasn't there any public hearings in regards to scaling back/curtailing Limited stop service

  11. Correct this isn't the first time an accident like this has occurred Back in 1999 an FDNY truck which was responding to a call was involved in an accident with a NYCT Bus killing the Bus Operator from Jackie Gleason Depot http://www.nytimes.com/1999/11/26/nyregion/bus-driver-killed-in-crash-with-fire-truck-in-brooklyn.html
  12. My condolences to the Peña family without a doubt this was a horrible accident what I've learned from news reports is that the box truck was not being pursued by the police and Mr. Peña had the right of way residents in the neighborhood stated that the individual who swiped the truck was frantic and sweating profusely and also banging on doors and ringing intercoms which indicates to me that he was on some type of illegal narcotic NYCT buses are equipped with lap belts and not shoulder harness belts that we associate with passenger cars
  13. Best depot to work for?

    It seems to me that all of MTA Bus routes are long haul routes and I don't know who makes the decisions on route assignments but if anybody had any brains the Q53 would be a Split route operation no reason why that route went from LaGuardia to College Point my question is why is Far Rockaway not operating that route same goes for the BM1 and BM3 which should be operating out of Flatbush and BM4 out of Ulmer Park it can be done just like they moved the X80 to MTA Bus there's no problem with MTA Bus laying over at OA garages so what's the problem with route reassignments
