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.

Congrats to everyone who made it. Bets of luck. Going on 8 months now, so far so good even clearing early, it gets better so don't get discouraged the first few weeks on extra list. Take your time, and remember make your own opinion of lines and people. How many people made it from the class so far?

I operated the NEW FLYER 2017 WiFi Bus on Friday for about 30 minutes. It is a SMOOTH RIDE. It has the Double Interlock with the brake and accelerator, a great Safety Feature. Now tomorrow I start Line Training out of West Farms and I'm looking forward to putting what I learned in training as well as my defensive driving skills to work as a TA Bus Operator.

 

I want to thank everyone for their support throughout this entire process. It has really been a journey for most of us and all of you have been so helpful on this forum, that I just wanted to let you all know that it is greatly appreciated.

They put the brake dipping down and locking after a few seconds not really for safety, but because operators wanted it to help with their knees. It does help with safety too tho.

That 3 second service brake interlock was created for safety reason to prevent the bus from moving while standing in place. If you ever operated the new flyers, the service brakes acts just like an RTS where if you don't apply enough pressure and hold the service brake down enough the bus will roll. All the new flyers 7000's series and up comes with that feature. Even with the interlock kicks in transit wants you to cover and hold the service brake. The 4000's series doesn't come with that feature.

 

(Don't let a beekie catch you resting your leg when you are suppose to be covering the brake at all time unless you have secured the bus and getting ready to get off the seat.)

I drive them all the time. When I got training on the wifi artic the superindentent that did the training told me the real reason that 3 second brake lock was put in cause drivers were requesting it all over the place in all depots to help with their knees. It's a win win tho helps with knees and good for safety.

My list number is#31xx,i had my drug test on March 27th. I haven't heard anything since then. So my guess is some where between 3000 and 4000 range.

Surprised they didn't call you. Last class was 4/17. Next will be after the summer as I heard.
