Good evening all, I have a question... my pre-employment date is tomorrow. I unfortunately lost my social security card and didn’t have enough time to get a replacement today.... I do have the rest of the docs required except that

I was called today to go in tomorrow for medical. They said to bring a "postal money order". Would the MTA accept any else for payment for the fingerprint???? Credit card or just a regular money order???

You can bring in a regular money order. I did and it was fine.

You need everything you had from the pre-employment PLUS your CDL B permit with Passenger endorsement ("P") and air brakes which removes the ("L") restriction. You didn't need the permit at pre-employment but you will need it for the medical and final processing because both happen on the same day should you clear the doctors.

Shoot. My first time behind the wheel of that bus was a little unnerving. I would hope I get settled in enough by that day.

How is training going so far? If you don't mind what depot are you currently training out of?...

I got sent to Grand Avenue. Im doing okay but still have some getting used to behind the wheel. Day 2 went pretty well considering some folks saying it's the hardest day. Got trolley braked twice on two tight corners. I like my instructor a lot. Really cool guy. Funny as hell.

I got it twice today too! Learned the hook turn today. Super easy.  I am not thrilled with my eval for the day but it definitely lets me know where I need to improve. I am super happy with Sup. Langston. He’s fantastic. Super knowledgeable and very cool. Easy to talk to him which is important.

The hook turn was definitely a little easier than I'd expected. Messed up slightly on one of the acute turns because I started the turn a little late. I only got trolley braked on one of the right turns and because I'd wandered close to a truck that was double parked on the street. I'm okay with the evaluation I got but I need to focus on getting my turns down pat and observing the mirrors and whatnot more

That great news hearing the Supt you guys currently have. Just stay focus, learn from the other students mistake on the bus and help each other out if you can. Its okay to mess up on day 1 - 5.

Judging by when this thread was done in 2017, I'm guessing the wait time is 2 years for bus op but since the L shutdown was axed, the wait might be longer?

I took the exam in October 2017 and the L train shutdown had something to do with it originally when they sent the letters out for pre-employment to almost everyone. They had also extended the lists of the previous two exams by another year because of it too. I scored high enough to be called up sooner.

They did extend the lists of the previous two exams for Transit? If you click here, type "2613" in the search box on the top right, and if you click here and type "4600" in the search box on the top right, I actually disagree with you...

It all depends on the needs of the Dept. of Buses...

You know what I meant, they're still calling names off the TA and OA exams 4600 and 4105, there were folks there at orientation from those exams. Some looked like they were reinstated looking at their folders

I hear ya, however they did not extend those lists, rather those lists did not expire yet. And since they're finished with calling people from those lists, chances are that those folks reinstated their names to the list. I would have also been there if it wasn't for this incident, however we'll see what happens.

A guy I met Tuesday while I was redoing the urine test, his list number was in the 700’s. They were considering him for the April 29th class.

I did my drug test today. I was told that I will be called for medical between from 3-90 days .

If any one did medical in last few days, can you share your list number(without last 2 digit) and your drug test date with me?

Thanks in advance.

I went in for the medical April 11 and was quickly thrust into the 4/15 class after I was cleared.  I originally got called for the drug test back in November but did not get called back for the medical. I got another call to come in April 8 for another drug test.
