You don't have to go into full detail in the e-mail.

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the 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.

Next, 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 which is free!!

Good luck!!

When the testing was done under DCAS (Department of Citywide Administrative Services), this is correct. It was from DCAS at the time, but I notice a lot has changed with the process for TA. See what happens.

 

However, this was NOT the case for exam 2613. After taking the test in January of 2013, we took the BOSS in June 2013. Then the list came out on October 30th, 2013 and they called the first group of people a couple of weeks after that.

Has anyone on this form took the BOSS exam in November of 2013 for MaBSTOA? We should be getting a notice in March of this year.

I found out, by a friend of mine, that they consolidated MaBSTOA and NYCTA. Same pay, same benefits.

Which ever (MTA) agency calls me first, I am not turning down. Give me a bus and I will be in my bliss!!! Lol.

Of course its in. The passing score is 70%. If everything goes well and you pass the Boss exam depending how many people make the final list, You will be call faster than someone whos in the 70-80. So higher score means lower list number. But everyone will be call if you pass its just depends how many actually pass. So just imagine 10,000 people makes the final list. It just mean 10,000 potential canidates. Some wont qualify because they wont have the proper license , criminal records, bad driving records, etc.

If it makes you feel any better my score was 85% projected score im not estatic but i am in the race. Think of this if you pass all requirements you will be called b4 me. Unless there is a hiccup in your process then anyone that scored lower will move on with the process. So relax your good

Thanks guys. But theres got to be a cutoff interms of how many people they will hire off the list. I dont think the person who scores a 70-80 will will have a shot because the city will just never get to that list number within 4 years. If 30,000 people took and passed the test there is no way the city will go thru all 30,000 applicants...

 

theres got to be a score/list number cutoff....with that said anyone know how many people applied for 4600?

Alot last exam 2613 maybe 50-60k people took the exam and 3603 only passed I believe. So this list might be a long one for four years

I disagree...for 2613, I heard about 36,000 people took the exam and only 3,621 people passed. And, as previously stated, not everyone makes it based on criminal record, they don't have the CDL permit, they fail medical, etc. In addition, from reading the 2613 thread (http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/34980-bus-operator-exam-2613-questions/) they are hiring about 200 people a month, so the list should be finished within a year and a half from when they first started calling, which was November of 2013. Once that happens, then they'll move on to 4600.

Well, if you think about it, there were approximately 3,000 people for just one session. There were a total of 4 sessions in one school (12,000 people) and another 4 sessions in another school (another 12,000 people). Therefore, if I had to take a guess, I would say 24,000 people applied for the exam. Now, not everyone is going to pass the exam, nor the BOSS exam. Therefore, that 24,000 number can easily be reduced to 18,000 people (if 75% of the people pass both exams).

 

As far as going through all of these applicants, if NYC Transit goes through 200 people a month, that's 2,400 people a year. And if they decide to extend the list for 5 years (compared to the normal 4), they will go through 12,000 people. Unfortunately, with exam 2613, out of 36,000 people that took the exam, about 10% passed (3,621). Therefore, if NYC Transit goes through 200 people a month, this list will be finished in a year and a half from when they first started calling people (which was November of 2013). That's why the first post says: "Who would have thought another TA exam so soon."

Thanks! Technically, they started calling in less than a year. However, for the next group that gets called, it will be a little over a year.

 

So that means for 4600 exam they should start calling people sometime in 2015?

 

Yes, depending on how fast they move with 4600.
