DAY 1 - My day today out of MJ Quill in Manhattan with Supt. Hamlin went well. I have to fix a few things, but let me tell you, he is PRETTY GOOD and knows his stuff. He wants us to focus on scanning 3-5 seconds and maintaining that 4 feet. I did a GREAT Job doing that and I also rode the white line with it in the center of my Steering wheel. I believe he saw I was doing that which allowed me to cover my right side. That was my part of my main focus today. I gotta work a little more on the Push and Pull Technique. Calling out the hazards came to me after awhile and the forward planning he showed us began to come in to practice as well to watch for the changing lights.

 

Got the (3) Mirrors Set-up really well and I got the ALSAPS DOWN PACKED and WORKING ON the Pre-Trip Inspection. I just need more time behind the wheel to practice more of the driving.

 

Overall it was a very Positive and Productive DAY 1 for me. I absorbed a lot from him as he pointed out EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING. He's very thorough and I need that to be as SAFE of  Bus Operator as possible. I took a lot of notes.

 

Well gotta get offline and finish Chapter 2 for tomorrow and go over PRE-TRIP at least 3 more times tonight before I sleep.

Everyone. keep up the GREAT WORK. See yall all on the road soon in passing  TOOT-TOOT (from my horn)

I think that's a great attitude! I can't wait for the next step which for is the receiving the email return for medical I finished filling out my cpd packet. I took my drug test on Monday March 27th. How long was it after you took the drug test did they email you back for the medical? Do you have your CDL? I have my permit, now I'm waiting for my school that go to...to schedule my road test.

No Ulmer Park, no Jackie Gleason, No Flatbush. Mostly Manhattan and the Bronx. I picked Michael J. Quill. I still have to pass the DMV road test. Just one shot at it.

Hello, question, after line training, [ed. but] before graduation, is there another road ,written test or line run test. Do we just go to graduation if line training went well???

The process is as follows:

 

Orientation (Day 0) ->10 Day Qualification -> RTS/Nova Training (Day 8, 9, 10 depending on day of qualification) -> Union Day (Day 11) -> General Information Day/Depot Pick Day (Day 12) -> Line/Equipment/Artic (if applicable) Training or DMV Road/Skills Test(s) (only for NYS CDL permit holders) -> Graduation 

 

After graduation you are on your own, except for Staten Island probationary-bus operators as they will have an additional 1-2 weeks (typically 2) of express bus line training, including an ATU Union Day. Once this is completed, they will be on their own. 

 

FYI, according to conversations with other bus operators, transfers to Staten Island take about 30 days and in some cases up to 90.

 

Was there any slots for East New York Station?

 

If slots are available or unavailable on a certain day this in no way bears ANY indication that a particular depot or division (Queens/Staten Island) will be available to pick for the following class.

 

For Staten Island, on General Information Day (typically Day 12), students will be informed that their transfer to Staten Island was granted (or not). Students will not have an opportunity to pick a specific Staten Island - division depot at Zerega but instead will pick with the union or simply be assigned based on specific division needs.

I can't wait to safely operate from point A to Point B and from Point B to Point A. Working for MTA is something for me to wake up and not feel "ugh I got to go to work now". Working for the MTA has been a dream since I was 6! My dream career for MTA is Train Operator but getting into the agency you want is a HUGE Success and Dream come true.

Here's some info I got today. If you fail your DMV road test first time, you have to do the MTA qualification again. First two days training, and have to qualify on the 3rd day. If you fail, you resign. IF you fail the road test twice, you're out.

This applies for people who qualified on days 6/7 and 8/9 not day 10 qualifiers.
