Good luck with Queens...I heard that Queens and Staten Island have very high priority, especially since it is very easy for the guys who either live in Long Island or New Jersey.

 

Also, for those who are :drool: about my progress...by this time tomorrow night I will post my status on the medical hold. I promise!

From what I heard at Zerega there will be a class every two weeks. Not just TA, there will be OA and MTA Bus also. Everyone will train together.

Rm3271 Congrats on making it on day 7 knew it wouldn't be a problem for you. I have a question about the process like your self I have been driving for some time now. I am trying to sharpen up when I am on my routes push and pull, covering brakes on the stale green lights, covering mirrors on turns. Are these the type of things the instructors are looking for. Also did you have any bad habbits they corrected you on.

If you like weekends off u can get them much quicker on Staten Island, about 4 years vs 8-10 years in the other boroughs.

What does your license say for "restrictions"?

That's exactly the stuff they look for.... Also covering the right side of the bus, they are big on that. The only bad habit that the instructor noticed was that every once in a while I would tend to grab the spokes of the steering wheel. Just listen and do whatever they ask and you will be fine... Good luck!

Hey guys as far as I could understand that TA is for all the other borough except Queens which is for MTA therefore  if you work for TA you can't choose a depot in Queens.
