  1. Thanks! With a score of 92.5, my list number for this particular exam is 2,2**, so it'll be a while before they get to me. What's interesting to note is that, if you play around with the site, in particular the list numbers, there are only 9,170 people on this list, compared to about 12,500 from the prior list, Exam 3600. In addition, the person who has the first list number obtained a score of 106.25. I'm personally like "wow!"
  2. Yes, because TA is civil service. MaBSTOA and MTA Bus are NOT civil service.
  3. You're most welcome. Good luck at Zerega!!
  4. You probably can, however you would have to call Human Resources (347-643-8229/30/31/32) for more information.
  5. First of all, welcome to the Forums! Second, unfortunately the answer to your question is "yes."
  6. Folks, I have good news!! If you look at the Civil Service List Certification page of the NYC Open Data website, if you type in "Bus Operator" on the top right hand side of the screen, you will see that on January 10th, 2020, the agency requested 3,000 names to fill 100 vacancies. Although the first 94 names comes from the 4600 list, the remainder of the names comes from this list. Best of luck to those candidates who will be reporting for pre-employment processing within the next couple of weeks.
  7. Folks I have good news!! If you look at the Civil Service List Certification page of the NYC Open Data website, you will see that if you type in "Bus Operator" into the search box on the top right hand side of the screen, you will see that on January 10th, 2020, you will see that the agency requested 3,000 names to fill 100 vacancies. Out of these 3,000 names, the first 94 names come from this list!! Best of luck to those who will be reporting for pre-employment processing within the next couple of weeks.
  8. Yes it is. Click here for the last Notice of Examination (NOE) for this position.
  9. As far as parking: From reading what others have posted, and if you go a "Google" search of the area, you'll notice that there are at least two or three school bus companies in the area. Therefore, get there early and worse comes to worse, take a nap in your car. You're lucky that next Monday, the Public Schools are closed for the MLK holiday. As far as some tips, have you read through the other Bus Operator threads, including, but not limited to, the handouts which I posted, the DOB New Hire FAQ, MaBSTOA 4105 thread, MaBSTOA 7105 thread, B/O 4600 Hiring Process, B/O 7612 Hiring Process, and the MaBSTOA 9100 threads? Like I told somebody else either in person or through a private message (PM), one of the things I personally do is I "copy" the good information, post it into Microsoft Word, and then I print it out so I have something to refer to when I'm offline regardless of which device I'm on (desktop, laptop, phone, etc.) In addition, if you look at this page, you will notice that I didn't post all of the Bus Operator threads. The reason why is because the links I posted above are most relevant, since the agency has administered some examinations, but they are not calling from all of the lists, respectively. As always, if you have a question, please do not hesitate to ask. As per the guidelines of the website, if you can avoid "bumping" threads, it would be appreciated.
  10. As stated in the green box on the top of the page, the endorsements you need at minimum are Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.
  11. Check out the announcement that is located in the green box at the top of this webpage. Best of all, cristcdl.com is free!! Although they "claim" that you can now select your state, I would still read the manual to be on the safe side. From my experience, I would use the website approximately 75 to 80 percent of the time that you study, and I would read the manual 20 to 25 percent of the time. You might personally disagree, however that's just me. Good luck!!
  12. As far as the prompt reply is concerned, you're welcome. As far as still waiting to get hired, let's just say that I hit a "speed bump," and I'm working on having this "speed bump" resolved as quickly as possible.
  13. Source? Cause the information I see is only from September...
  14. First of all, welcome to the Forums! Second, to answer your question, it will probably be at least a year, maybe 11 months, maybe 13 months. As I stated here, the agency currently has two other lists out - Exam 4600 which expires in January of 2021 and Exam 7612 which expires in October of 2022. With Exam 7612, they still have about 1,300 people to go through. Therefore, you still have some time. As far as obtaining official information, there is no such way. Like I've said to other people in person, just take an 'educated guess' and go with it. As far as any advice - I would suggest several things. First, keep your license as clean as possible since. With that said, make sure you have a maximum of 4 points on your license, maximum of 2 accidents, nothing pending, no suspensions, no DUI, DWI, etc. If you're unsure as far as what your license and/or abstract contains, you can run it off yourself online. For New York residents you can click here, for New Jersey residents you can click here. Second, mind I ask how much free time you have on your hands? The reason why is because, if you have a lot of free time, not only would I recommend to look at the 4600 and 7612 threads, which contain a lot of information, but also look at this, this and this thread as well. Like I've said to other people, one of the things I do is I "copy" the good information off this site and paste it into a Word document. This way, if I'm not online, for whatever reason, I still have a 'hard' copy to look at, study, etc. Third, if you're not currently a bus operator and/or driver, I would suggest taking a 'few' refresher lessons shortly before your 10-day training period begins. This way, you have at least, a little bit of familiarity with a 40-foot bus. Fourth, if you're looking for information to determine how long it would be, I would stay informed as far as how often they're having classes, what list number they're up to from the prior exam, etc. Once they get close to the end of the 7612 list, then you'll know you're not that far away. Hope this helps. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
