Im not a b.o but i can probably answer some questions , 1) Their shifts are how ever long they want it to be , they pick their schedule . 2) They can pick their routes , As far as the picking the depot part yes i think you can pick it if im not mistaking . 3) They call in a # on their cellular phones and they check for over time and they take it in & some operators go to a different depot to get their bus pending on where the shuttle is based from . 4) It must be easy to drive an artic its not that big .

1. Usually 8 hours(?), correct me if needed

2. The #1 guy in seniority picks first, then #2 picks, then so on. The lower you are, the less choices you have.

3. Overtime. B/Os sign up, then drive the bus on what's usually a weekend for them.

4. ??? I know that artic drivers gets 25 cents/hour more than regular B/Os.:confused:

No part time B/Os in MTA NYCT,MABSTOA, or MTA Bus. Express operators are full time and there are runs that stay out for a whole shift irregardless of rush hour or not. MTA Bus has plenty of buses running on express lines in between rush hours and on the weekend.
