LIST STATUS UPDATE: 4/27/2021

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)

For those of you who missed your initial appointment for whatever reason and wish to restore your name to the list, you must do so by sending an e-mail to certificationunit@dcas.nyc.gov. In your e-mail, state your full name, exam number, list number, the last four of your social security number, and a brief reason why you're restoring your name to the list. You don't have to go into full detail in the e-mail.

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!!

@+Young+ I assume we do our drug test the day we go down for our pre employment ?

I was also told we pick our depots out of training depending on seniority order and what’s available 

That is all correct. Picking depots comes after the initial 10-Day Training Session. And just be "prepared" to go to either Queens or Staten Island, since they will be placing you depending upon where you're needed.

Anyone know how "sensitive" the drug test is? 

 

Not a heavy smoker but did smoke for a week about two months ago and would rather keep my name off the list for a sec in order to avoid failing the test. 

 

Usually piss tests only go back 4-6 weeks but who knows if the MTA is using a more sensitive test. Anyone who has taken and passed this part of the process have any insight?

 

I'm list #7X but been off the list because I've just now reached having my license for three years. Glad to see this list moving so fast.

Hey guys, not sure what to do and looking for some guidance, I just got on the job for NYPD and now I too am getting the calls for MTA bus operator and appointment date. Any suggestions if it's better to stay NYPD or make the switch to MTA? What is top pay as a bus driver? I can't seem to find that info online. I know bus operator will probably be a better quality of life than NYPD but I'm trying to figure out the pro's and cons now of both sides, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats….you really pushed it to the limit. Least you got that and can I’ve forward. Next big step for you is passing the actual road test through the MTA training which I believe you get two chances

If you qualify day 7 you get 2 chances at the road test. If you qualify say 9 or 10 you get 1.

Doesn’t matter if you passed the first time or the 10th, congratulations on passing.

Im just wondering if anyone else got a phone call to report on August 2, 2021? Thanks in advance. I have my CDL already, will I still have to during the 10 day training program do the pre trip of the bus?
