This is kind of getting out of hand wasn't 3101 filing just last year? And the way they make the list for OA and BC is too lazy

Yup everything @Busoperator stated. Just want to add a little something on top of that.

 

TA is also consider as a civil service. Both OA and TA uses same union I believe "TWU local 100" except for staten island depots uses "ATU" as their union.

 

The pensions on TA is different compare to OA.

Yes both TA and OA can work at any depot during their

senority pick if the route line they want is open.

 

As far the different pensions benefits and how it goes, not sure exactly in full details what is being offered between the two, but I know TA will be covered by the city of new york, so im guessing maybe similar to any city civil service worker like "Nypd, fire dept, postal service" you know. But maybe theres a site somewhere that may show us a little sample of how the pensions work in the city of ny.

TA has a better pension plan since its a civil service agency. Both OA and TA has same Union "Depending which Depot you work for" as stated above. Because TA is a civil service division, thats why they give competitive written exam where OA or BC only gives an BOSS exam.

 

Your list number for TA is based on your Test score, Both OA and BC gives random list number.

Just like if you go to http://web.mta.info/nyct/hr/appexam.htm now, you see there is a hyperlink for the 4 exams that are currently open for filing...something similar will happen once June 3rd or 4th approaches.

The waiting game will take place @FatboyNYC. You will receive a first letter stating that they receive a payment for the application 4105. After you will have to wait until they send another letter to come take the BOSS exam. This can take months or a year. They are now working through the List for MaBSTOA Exam 3101 which was giving on November 2013.

For me this is like the back door to this position.....for ta you need to take an exam and pass and be put on a list, than take the boss exam......for this you send in the money.....get a list number and wait to be called...than take the boss exam and wait to be called for processing....this worked for me...I wish they would had told me the difference from mta bus and oa....but I am on one for 7 years now and the union is pushing for equal pension as oa......so 13 more and out....best of luck to all who apply!

Well I had better luck I was with MTA Bus for two years back in 2011 did a year in LG and a year at EC, when TA called me which I started in aug I got the hell out of there and was lucky to still be placed under the old contract i didn't even care about the two years I lost.
