Recommended Posts

What material can one study to become an ags if never worked for MTA before since this is a resume opening. I’ve heard it’s rare they hire without but not impossible. Any suggestions appreciated this is something of high interest.

A.G.S.  Meaning Assistance General Superintendent? 

The AGS can be for many dept within the Buses division. Transportations, Mechanics, Safety and etc.

90% of the time these positions are open for promotional  unless you have experience from a major transportation agency.

Majority of the positions within management is based on years of service experience ranks. For example in Dept of Buses the promotion ranks is Bus operator (3 years of service) to Dispatcher, after Dispatcher you are eligible to apply or get promoted to a Superintendent.  A.G.S is a level II rank which is higher to a regular Superintendent level I. To become AGS you have to be level I first unless you have years of past experience within a Mass Transportation agency.
