Just for accuracy Louis Gray, may he rest in peace, was a Construction Flagger.

Those are regular conductors who pick a flagging job for contractors.

 

Normally they do not enter the Tracks until we've removed power and notified everyone the Tracks now out of service.

So a member of the site, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent me the following update:

 

"the current track worker class is in the upper 800's to lower 900's & the instructors are saying that they are going to have 3 more classes coming up in DEC,JAN,FEB, at 40 students per class cause the MTA wants to get to about 2200 track workers soon. right now they are at 1948."

 

DISCLAIMER: My list number for this exam is in the 2800's, so I still have a ways to go before they call me for this position.

Much appreciated Young and anonymous individuals for the info. Being a college student again and currently unemployed is tough. I'm hoping I can make it in. Would like to have a job that guarantees pay increase. Also, do Mta workers receive discounts on Metrocards?

And also that number they need at the moment will adjust as months go by as people retire and or get promoted to other positions...

That's correct. As far as a discount on purchasing a regular Metrocard for your family and/or friends...no.

Just met a bunch of new guys who were up in the Bronx at 239St Yard. 

One of the guys said his list number was 940. 

Also said the instructor said they were expecting one more class before the end of the year. 

 

So to those still waiting .. best of luck ..

Will the MTA help with getting a CDL license if I have the permit already?

Sent from my LG-D851 using Tapatalk

Only if you pick a job that requires a CDL will Transit pay for any training needed.
