+Young+

Attention Folks:

For those of you who are not aware, as per the Active Civil Service List page of the NYC Open Data website, this list has been extended until January 6th, 2021. For those of you who want to restore your name to the list, click here for instructions on how to do so via e-mail. If you wish to do this in person, click here for those instructions.

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the immediate future, click here for the pre-employment packet and click here or for extra pages of the CPD-B booklet (if you need them) for final processing.

For those of you who are still waiting, you folks might want to check out this and this YouTube video. In addition, if you need help getting your Class B CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com Remember, the multiple-choice tests you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Good luck and remember to check those mirrors every three to five seconds!!

Any recommendations for a good pair of slip resistant shoes?  I've had my foot slip while holding the service brake a few times :o .  Specifically on the Nova buses.

Honestly I used skechers slip resistant work shoes 40 bucks at finish line. Looks like sneakers but more comfortable. That's just me. 882c60d376128c7da69acc4bf8a304d0.jpg

Thanks.  I've actually seen those a few times in my search online.  I'll definitely take a look at them when I go shopping.  Almost fell on my ass a few times today at work.

Which one's do you prefer?  The second ones definitely look like sneakers.  Any issues with the dispatchers in your depot?

I've always been a fan of Nike ACG, but they cost an arm & a leg

i wear those now and I find that I trip more on those than any other boot.

Ok, it's official. Going to Staten Island as an OA to TA cross over. Been almost 2 years at Ulmer Park in Brooklyn. Had a good experience.

I picked UP today, the depot of my 1st choice). I got very lucky. We had 2 slots available there but nobody wants to take it.
