I'm taking the test soon

Recommended Posts

I will be taking the written test on November 27th at 1:00pm in downtown Brooklyn. My cousin is a bus operator in the Bronx and she told me its just basic knowledge and something that I would be able to pass with no problem.

 

Wish me luck.:(

Is it the BOSS (Bus Operator Selection Survey) or the actual TA exam? If the BOSS just tell them what they want to hear.

 

GOOD LUCK!

It does sounds like she is taking the BOSS but I'm not sure.

 

But ya, good luck on the exam!

It is the BOSS survey. Its a common sense thing she told. My cousin told me they are going to ask me what I do on my days off. Are they serious.:confused:

 

The TA exam I want to prepare for. Does anyone know where I can get a bus operators manual if possible?:P

Nah, they ask on the exam things like if you had a problem with a co-worker what would you do? If a car cut you off what would you do? It's multiple choice. Tell them what they want to hear. They will say don't be honest. You will honestly be out of a job, if you are honest. If you are coming to MaBSTOA don't worry about the TA exam. Next years general you will be able to pick into Brooklyn. As a matter of fact, don't be surprised if Brooklyn depots, and 126st, are part of the depots you all can pick in to. We are merged now, and this General you can stay in OA, or go to TA.

 

If you want the manual anyway : http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/results.asp?WRD=bus+operator+exam&z=y

TA also I have a list # with MTA bus

 

Forget about MTA's Staten Island (stepchild). Come to TA. The pay is the same at all the depots, not selected ones.

I want to get into the same depot as my cousin.

 

If you don't mind sharing, which might that be?
