The list for this exam has been published as of November 27th, 2019.

Here is the Notice of Examination for this specific exam in case anyone needs this for future reference.

TRAINING: See this thread for more information.

HIGHEST LIST # CALLED: For the initial Pre-Employment packet: (Last Known - 500s)

NEXT SCHEDULED CLASS: TBA (To Be Announced)

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.

For those of you who have not done so already, you might want to check out this and this YouTube video. Next, if you need help getting your Class B Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com which is free!! Remember, the multiple-choice exams that you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Finally, for those of you who need to obtain your Commercial Learners Permit (CLP): If you need to make an appointment at the DMV to take your multiple-choice examinations, click here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We're here to help each other.

Good luck!!

Ok I just saw the number and it says 968 but why does it say April 14, 2021 certification expiration. 968 from my number was 100 in change change but I know I’m only 600 numbers in change away so I don’t follow lol. Once again sorry 

The reason why is because a City agency has a limited amount of time to hire off of a "Civil Service" list. In this case, it is from the middle of March to the middle of April, especially when it comes to initially sending out the e-mail messages which contain the pre-employment paperwork (for those of you who are curious as far as what this contains, click here).

Good luck!!

Ok but that doesn’t mean once April 14 comes that doesn’t mean they will stop calling after that date because the test is still active right ?

From my understanding, after April 14th, if they want to continue to call candidates, they have to request a new "batch" or "group" of names from DCAS to do so, since this falls under the heading of "Civil Service." They might be doing things differently now, since they are no longer physically mailing out "invitation letters," as you can see below, however, we'll see what happens as time progresses.

If you type "Bus Operator" into the search box of the Civil Service List Certification webpage, which can be viewed here, after mid-April (give/take a few days), if the agency wishes to hire Bus Operators, they need to request a new "batch" or "group" of names from DCAS, since the current certification, and not the list, will expire. This particular list doesn't expire until November of 2023.

(If you folks want to see all of the Certifications going back to 2017, click here.)

I want to also remind you folks that these examinations fall under the heading of "Civil Service." Therefore, if anyone on the 4600 or 7612 list wishes to restore their name, they have each and every right to do so, and they will have priority over the folks waiting to be called off of this list, since your list number remains the same. In addition, the lists for 4600 and 7612 were published before this one, respectively.

Stay safe and healthy!!

I called the MTA exam number. they said they just had 199 in their last class. They don’t know what the latest number physically called. I said I heard it was 500 in change so if my number is 11** it’s pretty much not if but when I get called to start my process he said yes.

If you are not successful with their "Employment Operations" phone numbers (347-643-8229/30/31/32), have you tried reaching out to the "higher ups," whose information can be viewed here?

Good luck!!
