  1. Needed something with a schedule last pick, I was getting whooped working the list over the summer. Worked out tho, because fall pick for express was murder.
  2. You still out here on the island? I spent last pick on the 52 and thought you dipped already. People don't pay, they know there's no consequences. Just like the bail reform. They act like the driver don't exist, they don't know how to open their mouths, no common sense, none of that. But when you tell them about themselves, they either look at you stupid or get mad that you got mad. There should be zero excuse why you walking on the bus after shopping at Gucci at the mall and walking right past the farebox. ZERO Was on the 46, stopped at a red light, two cars between me and the crosswalk where the bus stop was. Bell wasn't rung up to this point. (So the stop is already a done deal) Bell goes off, so I hit the back door. Kid comes from the back of the bus, past the door, to the front, so maybe he wanted the next stop. He hovers over the front, not one word till I roll thru the intersection. "oh wait, I'm getting off here." Long story short, I said my piece, he had that dumb look on his face and he was the only one walking back to his stop.
  3. I mean activating the back doors, (the green light) I don't mean physically opening them. Stop confusing reacting me, lmao
  4. Operators are supposed to unlock the back doors at every stop, even if they're only picking up.
  5. The pick started for Staten Island, Queens and MTA Bus today. It starts on the 19th for the rest of the system.
  6. We still have to correct the system if it spits out wrong information.
  7. Also to let the people who always decide to cross in front the bus (and somehow not get hit.. not that I wish that on anyone but it's stupid), that you're coming.
  8. The Santa Express is a yearly delivery of donated toys collected at the four SI depots to the Kids Against Cancer charity. The union together with KAC, drive the bus around to various hospitals, shelters, etc, giving out the toys to kids in need. The bus went out last Thursday for this year's delivery: https://www.silive.com/news/g66l-2019/12/b39829f21d6633/santas-express-mta-teams-up-with-kids-against-cancer-to-deliver-holiday-gifts-.html
  9. Well, faster service does not mean that operators get a pass to speed up and down the street either. And for the record, supervision has been holding all buses on the M14 to their times, since the busway opened.
  10. Because we're in the business of safety, not yee-hawing up and down the street.
  11. As an OA operator, you can work in any of the 13 depots that use the consolidated seniority list for TA/OA operators. (More on that when you get to work) You'll be able to work out of all depots in the Bronx and Manhattan and the TA depots in Brooklyn. You will NOT be able to work at any MTA Bus depots, Staten Island or the three remaining TA depots in Queens. If you want to transfer to NYCT, you'll have to take the appropriate test and wait to get called. You will have to redo medical and the drug test. Everything else, they already have on file. You will be given a start date at Zerega but don't have to redo training or your probation.
  12. 4019 was fitted with the announcement system when it was in Staten Island for the 79. When it was moved to local service, the system was disabled.
  13. There's no additional line training. You're gonna have to go ride and otherwise learn the lines yourself. Being that you're on VR, you'll have the advantage of knowing what's coming to you, so you can prepare for it.
