  1. B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    Congrats @Carnage718!!!
  2. Bus Operator

    They call in list order. Please refer to this thread/topic from now on. Thanks.
  3. MaBSTOA #4105 Hiring Process

    So I got my letter in the mail today, with a list number of 41**, which is in between 4100 & 4200, with a report date of Thursday, January 25th to report to 180 Livingston Street. However, since I failed the B/O training session 4 years ago (February 2014), I have to wait 5 years (February 2019) to try again. Therefore, I'm going to decline the appointment, respectfully. Good luck everyone!!
  4. Exam 4105

    Please refer to this thread...we are trying to reduce the number of threads and topics, especially if all of them are for one exam...thank you...
  5. B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    Personally, Casey Stengel, since there are five bus routes within 1 & 1/2 miles of where I live which serve the Flushing-Main Street station in which I can take the one stop. However, as far as starting out, I'm flexible, as long as there's a decent parking lot and/or the commute via public transportation isn't that bad.
  6. B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    First of all, there is a difference between tickets, suspensions, convictions, accidents, etc. If you still disagree with me, then look at this sample abstract, especially page 3 which separates "Suspensions" from "Convictions" and "Accidents." Just make sure you don't get into any more accidents and you should be fine. Thank you for posting this information. DCAS isn't always 100% accurate, in which they're known for being late as far as updating the information, that's why I said somewhere in the 5000's in a previous post.
  7. B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    The most amount of accidents is two, regardless of whether you were at fault or not. As far as the list number they're up to, from monitoring this thread and recently calling the DCAS hotline (212-669-1357), they're in the 5000's.
  8. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    It is not like the NYPD. I'm not 100% exactly sure what the medical is like for Conductor, but to give you a general "idea" of what it is (aka 90%), consider these links: From B/O Thread 2613: Posts 2234 & 4880 (my apologies about the page numbers on post 4880 being incorrect; this was done before the software upgrade) From Track Worker 3600 Thread: Posts 307, 591, 606, 862, 1175, 1220, 1241, 1269 & 1667. Again, this is a general idea (aka 90%), chances are they will be looking for something "specific" which I'm not 100% sure about. Hope these links help answer your question.
  9. Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    You're welcome.
  10. Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    You can, however for you to switch from MTA Bus Company to NYC Transit, you have to take the civil service exam, pass the BOSS exam and wait for your list number to be called. The only advantage is that you're already an MTA Bus Operator so you don't have to go through the 10-day training period again.
  11. MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    That's because this thread is for the MaBSTOA exam, plus they have not yet administered the BOSS exam for 7612!! If you took the BOSS for 7105 and passed, you probably won't have to take it again for 7612 since it's the exact same exam. Definitely!! As far as timing, between these exams and those I took for DCAS, I don't keep track - it's just too confusing and complicated.
  12. Staten Island Railway trackworker

    All I know is that this is not civil service, unlike Track Worker for NYC Transit.
  13. Trainning Bus

    When I went through the 10-day Bus Operator Training Session back in February of 2014 out of the Flatbush Depot, I trained on buses 4235, 4243 and 4590 which are the 2008 or 2009 Orion buses. If you qualify on Days 7 or 9 or 10, then they would train you on the RTS & Nova buses shortly after. They would only train you on the articulated buses if the depot you pick into has them. Now if you're seeking experience with these types of buses within the tri-state area, let me know in this thread and I'll offer my advice.
  14. Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process

    I think she was trying to shrug you off...I'm in the 2800's and I haven't heard anything...if I was you, I would call Ms. Rivera on Tuesday (not Monday since it's a holiday) and find out what the story is...her number is 347-643-8523. All of her information can be viewed here. Good luck!!
  15. MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    First of all, as far as those point reduction courses or Defensive Driving Classes, although the insurance companies like them, from the MTA's prospective, they do nothing. Therefore, if anything happens, such as tickets, points, accidents, etc., you just have to wait the three years. Second, you are allowed to have a maximum of four [4] points. Anything above this number they will not tolerate. Therefore, if you loose your case in March of 2018 in which you plead guilty and pay the fine, then you don't qualify. Now if you win your case, just make sure to bring a copy of the disposition and/or any other paperwork to 180 Livingston Street when they call you down.
