Anyone taking test #8006 Bus Operator

Recommended Posts

how did you answer the question about the girl with the big pothole in the middle of her street?

 

I answered to drop her off as near to her requested stop as possible and tell her that I can't go any furthur because I can't get around the large pothole..a bus driver makes the final decision.

if the dog was disruptive then you must ask them both to get off the bus...

 

I got the same answer and also the same answer to the pothole ?

I also put red that would be weird if the answer is clear or white because fog is clear or white you can spot a red light in fog and if thats the case the test needs to be revised i will protest i should have taken down the number to that ?

 

but in any case good luck to myself and everone who took exam 8006 today

 

I was thinking red and white are already used for reverse lights and brake lights...

The map questions were easy. It took me awhile to figure out what a "quadrant" was. F6,refers to the letter and number on the map.(coordinates). At first I thought it was a subway or a bus line,lol.

true....true.... yes..... yes.... good point. well i probably got that one wrong.. 80 questions means that each question is worth............... how much?? 1.2pts for each question?????????????? LITTLE HELP??? i don't like numbers, it's all just fuzzy math to me.

yeah the map questions were easy but i was initially intimidated by those questions, skipped all of them at first. proceeded with the rest of the exam then went back to them and realized that they were easy

no i didn't see any kids, probably cause some guy with grey hair and a blue shirt (i think he worked for dcas) started talking to me as soon as i left the building asked about the test , if i thought it was hard, and how i think i did. thing is that same guy was standing there while i was on line waiting to get in to the school and he kept askin us if we had studied for this exam from the book??? i parked like two streets and one long avenue from the school

wouldn't clear or white lights be for backing up???

 

 

Reverser lights, fog lights, and headlights are the same color. I have fog lights on my gas guzzler SUV.

 

I don't know why that question would even be on there. No bus here has these lights.

Amber are the yellow lights, that you see tow-trucks, Con-Ed, MTA, park vehicles, etc use.

Yes wbsguy,that is what I choose,if a visually impaired person and her service dog gets on the bus,the dog starts barking and growling at the passenger sitting next to them.....if a service animal is unruly they must get off the bus.

 

 

Then ADA will rip MTA a new a$$hole. Actually your answer was correct, just they shove ADA in our faces so much, that I am starting to wonder if soon the answer would be, tell the other customers to get off, and take David Patterson with his dog, where they need to go.

Tell her to hang on tightly, cause I'm gunning it and we will go airborne. Dukes of Hazzard style.

what about the lady and her kids boarding the bus??? my answer was to check them at the 44inch marker

 

That's the answer, but in real life we don't give a sh!t. I told a lady she needs to pay for her daughter (the child was a full grown teen), and the lady yells at me, but she's just a child. That's the way MTA got the public. They think they don't have to pay for their overgrown kids at all.

 

Just giving you a heads up, what really happens here.

Exactly,I was asking myself the same thing,why is this question on the test? And it was the 1st one also. Buses have CLEARANCE lights on top right?

LOL,Another question,your bus is behind schedule,there is a lady who has bad knees and asks the bus driver to open the wheelchair lift in the back,she is unable to get up the steps,what do you tell her? I would have asked a passenger to carry her up the steps,lol,all kidding aside I choose to go outside and let her in from the back/wheelchair lift.

 

I thought that was only for people who were sitting on wheelchairs.....so it turns out ANYBODY can request the bus operator to let them in from the lift? I would figure most of the complaints from passengers come from (A)elderly (B)disabled people.

Anyone who asks, can use it. You are to not question why they need it.
