    MTA Bus F/T B/O Exam # 7300

    They need bodies everywhere, especially with the L train shutdown 4 months away.

    The 43 is staying but FP is giving up their half of the 38 for the 57 & 60. The system pick(ing) is over, so any of the BK/BX/M ops can tell you what's going on.

    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    They're known to do a lot of batch processing of list numbers so there's sometimes a huge variation of who's getting called and for when. Like I tell everyone, go to 180 in person, if you can. It's time out of your day, but they can definitely pinpoint what's going on with your process and advise you. If they know for a fact that they skipped you by mistake, they will tell you come in at any time to get caught up. Again, time from your day but slow movement is better than none.

    Right now, the only bonafide depot for the shuttle is Quill, since they're actually getting buses for the M14 SBS. We will know for sure when the April system pick is finalized in the coming months. In January, the M35 is going to be split between Quill and Hale.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    You are subject to randoms everyday that you show up to work. I had a classmate get sent for a random after one of the first days of express bus training. You'll definitely get your lunch during training. They're not going to leave you high and dry, everyday. You have to understand that you could have failed your drug test right there and then for flushing. Idk if she told you directly not to flush the toilet but there is at least something around that you see, that instructs you NOT to do so. If you do that in the future, they're just going to fail you straight up.

    Also, I think the nozzles are different between the two.

    The M66/M72 has runs that start off and end with reliefs, so they won't stick them there until the majority of the operators are trained on the bus.

    They went with the 280hp rated engine instead of the 330 rated one. They're beautiful on the local streets but they suck on any sort of incline. Those 2200s are all I try to drive when I work out of Charleston.

    The highest I've seen was 503K on 2836 and that was like 3 weeks ago.

    Thought my days of homework were done. 😭 Also, all of Castleton's buses have Michelin, local and express.

    It's not even that, you can't add service of any kind, just out of thin air. Just like how they're hiring bus operators like crazy, they're gonna need the additional buses to run the regular service, on top of the shuttle.
