Message added by +Young+

Here is the Notice of Examination for this specific exam.

This list was published on September 8th, 2021. To find out your list number, click here and type either your last name or "9618" into the search box on the top right hand side of the screen.

If you need help getting your Class B Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com Remember, the multiple-choice exams that you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Good luck!

As per the guidelines, if we can stay on-topic, it would be appreciated. If you're looking for experience, consider looking at this thread/topic.

In addition, just to add my two cents, if you do not have the School Bus "S" endorsement, and you live in Queens, there is a Coach Bus Company out of Nassau and Suffolk County which is also looking to hire drivers. For more information, send me a Private Message (PM) and we'll take it from there.

Awesome thanks @+Young+ will stick to the guidelines of the forum as well.

yes, they go by the list numbers not the licenses. It would make sense for them to put in licensed drivers first but unfortunately thats not how they do it.

Does it make much of a difference if you come in the door with the CDL B License compared to the CDL B Permit only?

Besides the superintendent eyeing you a bit harder because you have a license, just the DMV road test at the end of the 10 day training.

I wonder when they will start calling by. I got a phone call / email to take exam 2302 this month as well, I applied after seeing an ad.

I’ll worry about getting vaccinated when they actually call me down. I don’t want to get the damn vaccine but I won’t be dumb enough to pass up on the opportunity to get into the MTA because of it.

Can they legally tell another human what to put in our body for a job? What if someone wants to wait to see the real side effects that takes years.

Bus Operator 9618’s Notice of Examination obviously didn’t include a vaccination requirement because there wasn’t a pandemic at the time, but I don’t think they can amend an NOE after the examination is complete. Civil Service has laws and regulations but I am not an attorney.

What I do know is you can’t be disqualified for a reason that isn’t listed under the NOE otherwise they’d be stepping on a slippery slope. What they can do is include it in their NOE’s for future exams. Thats just my guess. 

I’m curious to know if they will require it for new applicants who are applying for the job and not for those who are already on lists.

Very valid point. I would much rather subject myself to weekly or even daily testing. But if push comes to shove I will simply just go get the vaccine smh.

Is exam 2302 the same as the current MTA Bus Operator Position which is currently open for filing, which people can learn more about in this thread/topic?

I just want to be on the same page, that's all...

agree with you 100%

I wonder if the union can use some of these points for a legal fight in the courts for new hires that have their names on these lists already.

On the new NOE for city jobs that are up in the DCAS website, it says on the requirements to be hired you must be vaccinated unless the agency has approved an exemption for medical or religious reasons.

One question that I have been thinking about is, if your name is on a list for a NYCTA title, then it falls under DCAS which is city civil service.

The city is allowing candidates to request exemptions for medical or religious reasons, if they are approved depends on each individual agency.

MaBSTOA and MTA Bus Company are not DCAS so their not considered civil service.

Doesn't that make NYCTA a city agency and not a state agency like MTA ?

so if the MTA won't allow exemptions for new hires, wouldn't NYCTA have to allow exemptions for new hires since they are a city agency ?

No. The MTA is governed by the State/Federal.

The union has no say when it comes to how the MTA handles the hiring process. They only give their inputs once you’re on the job officially. That’s one of the reasons after you qualified  the 7-10 days training, you meet the union division afterward.

The NOE states information about the current position you’re applying for but can be subject to change. 

The MTA is a state agency, not the city. Nypd, FDNY, Santitation, DOT is managed by the city.

Yup! Sorry to go off topic here, lol.

In all honesty, this exam (9618) with NYCT seems like a better gig. I'm going to stick it out and pray they start this list soon. Will be getting vaccinated if they call. November 14 seems like a random date. I wonder if they'll be hiring before or after that date.
