Hey Young. Question for you my friend. You said you knew a driving school that the instructors are former MTA operators correct? A friend of mine is on the list and wants to attend this school with the mta instructors. Do you remember the name of the school?  Thanks man.

1st Choice Driving School in Brooklyn, however, last I heard, they have discontinued their CDL training programs.

Sorry...

When I use to do the B25 via Fulton street, before you cross Eastern Pkwy I use to see their commercial bus in white parked on the side of the road. Their bus had the front wheels position behind the driver which is similar to the transit buses.

At least you understand the issue and problems you have work on them and go for it. Make that day 7!

I had a training bus in front of me this morning on the B41 route during rush hour time on Avenue N. Looks like the Supt had the trainee pull over to the right just so I can pass by and pick up the heavy  load at The bus stop.

Jfk depo. But I remember when that happend

If that was your bus, You was on Ralph Avenue and made a right turn at the light onto Avenue N and was trying to pull in the first bus stop and continued to the next one but stop at the corner before the next bus stop, that when I  passed by and went around to service the bus stop.
