With that scanner you won't be able to listen to the bus frequencies(MTA BUS and NYCT) since it's non trunked.

My first scanner was a PRO-94 which I don't have anymore, I have a Uniden BC-346XT

which I bought in 09 for $219.00, I learned to program it with some help on a forum



You should be able to listen to the RTO channels, 156.10500-Signal Department , 160.84500-Yard, 161.19000- IRT Subway,

161.50500-BMT Subway, 161.56500-IND Subway, 470.38750-Power Section, 470.43750-Staten Island Railway,

470.48750-Maintenance of Way
