  1. What OA title you are trying to move to and why would you want to go from TA to OA? And yes, you would have to take the next open competitive exam for that title, whenever that comes around. If you're going to OA to be a bus operator, just wait for the next TA bus op exam and get hired from that list... Less paperwork and you can keep your pension in NYCERS.
  2. That's fine. "[No] Airbrakes" is actually a restriction, so if you would had failed that part, then you would have a letter for that. The M restriction is "No Passengers in Class A vehicles", which doesn't apply to you since buses are Class B vehicles. The P restriction is "No Passengers in CMV", which will be removed once you pass your road test. See https://dmv.ny.gov/driver-license/driver-license-endorsement-and-restriction-codes for more info.
  3. If he wants to dig his own grave and bury himself, cool. We working smart, not hard out here.
  4. They're similar but it's not just about memorizing what the answer is to whatever question they ask. You have to understand the concepts of it too.
  5. Sure. Send $500 cash upfront for a premium sub to 7/11's admin duties. Times rough out here.
  6. You'll need the Class B permit with the passenger endorsement and no air brake restriction. (So make sure you take the test for air brakes too) A3 restriction is fine for bus operator. Get in contact with them and see what they can do for you. Might be as simple as pushing you to the class after.
  7. Cool, so it saves me having to figure out how to ban you from a mobile device for dupe accounts.
  8. It's stupid. All that money for the announcement system retrofits and they still don't work right. How is the limited program still calling every single local stop too. 🤦🏾‍♂️
  9. No ADAs is an automatic extension. I know someone a week away from clearing probation who got bagged for no ADAs. Speaking of which, if you're driving a bus with an announcement system and it is not calling the stops or not giving the right info, you still have to call out and/or correct it.
  10. Alright, so the first thing you have to figure out when it comes to slips is what you got the slip for and the pay breakdown of the particular run that it's being applied to. If you have a BOOST run, then your late slip must be greater than the amount of time your run is boosted by. Boost runs are runs that pay less than 8 hours through the calculation and are boosted to 8 hours to make the guarantee, as per contract. For example, if you have a 30 minute boost, then you need a 31 minute slip to get paid. The reason for this is that you do not get double paid for work. With a 30 minute boost, that means the pay calculation came up to 7:30. You get the boost of 30 mins, so 31 mins and up is the part of the slip that gets paid out. The exception to this though is if you work extra service. Extra service slips are paid out first, THEN the boost amount is deducted from it. Regular slips, the boost is deducted first, then the rest of the slip is paid. The other thing is that you have to look at, is your vehicle time for your run. Typically runs with less than 8 hours of vehicle time mean that the "work standard" time is also under 8 hours. You need 8 hours to get a slip paid out with OT. Otherwise, it will be paid out at straight time. Again extra service slips are always paid out at time and a half first. In order for you to put a slip in OTO, you first have had to gotten paid the overtime from it. Like dman said above, if you check your timecard, you will notice two new entries for USCOT and USBON. (Unscheduled OT and the Unscheduled Bonus, respectively) If you have this, that means your slip was paid out and you got overtime from it. If you put in a slip and you don't see this, that means no OT was paid out and that means you can't put it in OTO. Okay, so you got a slip and you're sure that it's gonna pay OT. In TWU land, you can only bank the straight time portion (USCOT) of your late slip. The overtime bonus has to be paid out. If you're in ATU land, you can bank the whole slip. So let's say you get an hour slip. You will get paid out for 1:30. You can put the hour into OTO for TWU or the whole 1:30 for ATU. Also, you can either get paid for your slip, bank the whole thing or split it. This is gonna be confusing on a first read. You can hit me up, I can explain it a lil bit more in depth. Also go ask your union reps and the general dispatcher at the depot. They can explain it to you too.
  11. They don't. You have to call them within a year of you telling them that you wasn't ready and they will reinstate your list number. Only then will they come back to you.
  12. That was your quarterly probbie ride with a 19A dispatcher (or supt). Not everyone is gonna announce till after, so be careful.
