    MaBSTOA B/O Exam #9100

    List numbers are random except for the NYC Transit (TA) positions, which are based on a civil service exam. The BOSS is a pass/fail. Correct, except for the NYC Transit (TA) positions, which are based on an exam. Only after the BOSS for those civil service exams is when you're given your list number. If you took it within the past year, probably not. If it's over a year, then yes. As far as I can recall, it was probably before. If someone can clarify this, I would appreciate it.

    MaBSTOA B/O Exam #9100

    Definitely!! The purpose of the part-time Bus Operator, IMHO, is to get your foot. As @SevenEleven said in this post, once you pass training, you won't have to go through that again. In addition, with the OA exams, as it says in the third post, we will be given a random list number. So if your list number for 7300 and 7105 is high, and you didn't do that well on exam 7612, but get a low random list number for this exam, then you'll be good to go!!

    Questions about NYCT Bus/MTA Bus Training

    It should be. As long as the abstract is less than 30 days old, you're good to go.

    Other Transit Fourms

    This forum is probably bigger than this one.
  6. According to this page, filing for this exam will begin this Friday, July 13th. Until the official Notice of Examination gets published, I would encourage you folks to look at this & this Notice of Examinations for any questions that you may have. In addition, you will probably find this thread very useful as well. Happy posting!!

    Questions about NYCT Bus/MTA Bus Training

    A regular copy is fine. If you click here, this sample would suffice (except for all of the bad stuff within the past three years) with the Comissioner's signature, which comes automatically when you order it online. I don't know about other states, but you can order your New York State certified abstract online by clicking on this page. As far as less than 30 days old: Whenever I went to 180 Livingston Street and Zerega (back in 2014), I remember them saying that over and over again for all out-of-state licenses. They may have meant that they wanted an abstract less than 30 days old if you have a CDL from New Jersey, Connecticut or Pennsylvania, which is acceptable, however perhaps someone else from this site can clarify this for me...thanks in advance.

    Plans move forward for LaGuardia AirTrain

    Don't get me wrong - you have a good idea, however who's going to initially pay for it? In addition, if Gov. Cuomo finds a way to pay for this, then isn't Mayor DeBlasio going to squak more about his speed cameras being unplugged around the 5 boroughs? I know, it's all about the politics....

    2018 MTA Bus Operator Medical

    I highly doubt it. IMHO, the only thing they're looking out for now is sleep apnea. If your neck size is greater than 17 inches, or if your Body Mass Index is greater than 35, then you'll have to get a sleep study done, which takes place overnight in a facility. Otherwise, it's the same thing. Good luck!!

    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    So I was browsing around the MTA website and I saw this message on this page: Bus Operator, Exam No. 7612 (Updated 7/3/18): Admission Letters were recently mailed to candidates that passed the multiple-choice test inviting them to complete the Bus Operator Selection Survey (BOSS) during the months of July and August. Please note that candidates that have already successfully completed the BOSS for another exam number (e.g., 7105, 7300) within the last year were not invited because they do not need to complete BOSS again for Exam No. 7612. This explains why some people, like @blackmamba67, got an invitation, while I will not since I took the BOSS this past December for either MTA Bus Company or MaBSTOA (don't recall).
