Bus Operator Exam 2613 Questions

Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain some of the things you look for when choosing a depot to work at?

Everyone is different... But in my opinion the first thing you should be concerned with is the commute. TA is all about time. You don't what to many things to factor in to your commute that can cause you to be late... The closer the better! One minute late to work with TA and your run is gone!! If you drive then parking would be another thing... Also routes, Some people don't like doing express routes or routes where you have to drive articulate buses...

If you are 1 minute late you are AWOL... Your run will be gone, it's up to the dispatcher what they wanna do with you... If he's short dudes on the extra list he might have you stick around. He can also send you home without pay for the day. Either way you're going to get a violation and going to have to see the boss... Not good!!

Yea always pick the depot closest to your home.

 

Even in a storm....u gotta report in, even if u don't go out because the weather conditions are bad, u are still expected at your report time.

Rm3271 I know you in Rt training how many rts do you get trained for. Is all of them or just the current open runs. Also do they provide rt guides to follow.

You have to learn every route that leaves your depot.

They try to teach you all the routes that come out of the depot.... No guides, you write down the rights and lefts yourself!

about how many rt are there per depot ???   I know they will all be different but about how many 

 

Refer to http://www.ttmg.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=New_York_MTA_Bus_Operations_Depot_Roster. This should be helpful.

You can't even print out the map of the certain routes from mta.info? Wow...

Roughly between 8 and 13, but each depot is different.
