    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    They say anywhere from 3 to 90 calendar days. Therefore, since they're also working with Bus Operator Exam 4600, in which those people have priority, I would personally say at least a month. Again, this is my educated guess. In addition to the comment below as far as them rushing everything, from the previous pages, somebody in the 500's got called, but not the 600's. Therefore, since they're also working with the previous list, which doesn't expire for the next 13 months (give/take couple of weeks), I think you still have some waiting time. As far as how long of a waiting time - it all depends on the needs of the Dept. of Buses and how many people show up to Livingston Street. In addition, the e-mail said to go get your CDL, when, on the top of the second page of the Notice of Examination, all you need is a Learner's Permit and your license being valid for three [3] years? I find this interesting.
  2. If that's the case, then you just need to update your information with DCAS. See the top of the fourth page of the Notice of Examination for instructions on how to do so. Thanks @msmcmillan for the clarification!!

    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    Not bad, that's the maximum amount of points you can have. Now the suspension - if it's less than 3 years old, then there's a problem...

    Mind I ask when these violations and suspension were, and how many points you have? They'll probably tell you to restore your name to the list once the suspension comes off your abstract.
  5. I think there's some confusion. This past week, I also got a notification from DCAS in the mail with my list number. However, when I took the exam, in the selective certification part, I noted that I do have a Class A & Class B CDL. Therefore, I don't know where you're coming from when you say " also have any of you sent out letters to DCAS in regauards of the selective certification.” Can you please elaborate for us so we can try to help you? Thank you.

    If I had to take an educated guess, they're very close to finishing up the 4600 list, or, not a lot of people who are on the bottom of that list are not showing up. And yes, it is the same clerks that handles all the other lists for employment, however not only do they do this day in and day out, some of them have been doing this for a while that they know what they're doing.
  7. From DCAS's perspective, two weeks. You'll know for sure once you receive something in the mail from them. However, the real answer depends on when the specific agency, in this case NYC Transit, needs more candidates. As an example, if you click here, followed by typing in "04600" in the search box on the top right, followed by putting the list numbers, which is the second column from the left in descending order, you'll see that for the person who has a list number of 8,221 for that exam, his information was obtained by NYC Transit from DCAS in August of 2017, followed by October & November of 2018. Therefore, if this person re-requested his/her name to the list after these specific dates, he/she would have to wait until NYC Transit obtains the next 'batch' of candidates from DCAS. Similarly, if you were to type in "07612" in the same search box, NYC Transit obtained the first 'batch' of candidates from DCAS for this exam back in October, followed by November. Therefore, if anybody re-requested their name to the list after November 7th, they would also have to wait until NYC Transit obtains the next 'batch' of candidates from DCAS. Got it?

    Any CDL-BP Holders Seeking Experience?

    My apologies for bumping this thread, however I now work at Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC). As a result of the company experiencing a shortage of operators, which is expected to continue until further notice, the company is currently hiring part-time Bus Operators who have little to no experience driving a CDL vehicle. As long as you have a relatively clean abstract and you have a Class B CDL with a Passenger Endorsement, you're good!! Even if you have another full-time job, you can work this second job with no problem, providing it fits within your schedule. If you click here, you'll see that our current fleet consists of four Orions (3, 5, 6 & 7) and four New Flyers (8, 9, 10 & 11). Two of our New Flyer Buses are 2016; the other two are 2018. Yes, that is correct, you can drive practically a brand new bus within New York City with little to no experience!! For more information, you can either send me a Private Message (PM) with a resume attached or you can email Cyril.Opperman@rioc.ny.gov or you can call (212) 832 4583 for more information.

    DCAS name restoration

    Mind I ask what title or list number this is for? Although this is a public forum, the more information you can provide, the better. Thanks!

    As a suggestion, although it is not mandatory, have you considered taking the School Bus endorsement as well? The reason why I'm suggesting this is because later on, if you wish to add it, you will have to take another road test in another bus. If you add the endorsement now, you can take one road test for both endorsements. Have you tried using the practice tests from cristcdl.com? When I got my initial permit about 5 years ago, in addition to all of the other endorsements as time evolved (Metal Coil, School Bus, Doubles/Triples, Tow Truck, Tank & Hazmat), I made index cards from the practice tests from this website. Since the site is based out of Ohio, I would recommend using the practice questions from the practice tests 75 to 80% of the time and reading the manual the other 20 to 25% of the time. I'm not surprised... We don't check the alcohol. As far as emptying the air tanks, only if the company requires it especially when it gets very cold in order to prevent the air lines underneath the vehicle from freezing. This way, there will be less problems when the person the next morning starts it. It's also a safety feature since you can't safely move the vehicle unless there's at least 90 PSI, however the ultimate decision is up to the company.

    CDL Class B with Passenger Endorsement and no N1 nor N2 restrictions. If you wear glasses, that's fine.

    I agree, however, for most folks who have to work Monday thru Friday, it'll probably be easier to call compared to going down. In the event you need it, the main phone numbers for their Human Resources Department are (347) 643 8229/30/31/32.
