Does anybody know anything about this? I know the application period starts this Monday, September 20th, however I was shocked when I initially saw this.

Thanks in advance.

That link is also invalid and nothing shows up on the careers site.

The reason why is because the application period starts Monday. I'm just wondering if anybody has any information in regards to this before the application period opens up.

Right, skip a whole test (#1100) and hire new people. No wonder they have a bus op shortage, they're all over the place with hiring.

Yeah it seems kinda weird for them to open a new application period. I’m sure they didn’t exhaust 0100 yet. And 1100 hasn’t even don’t the exam.

Yup. They told me they would do the exam in the summer and it's fall already.

I dont know why they can't call off both lists continually.

So this is for MTA Bus Company. As I just applied myself, what's interesting to note is that you have to fill out a questionnaire, which includes whether you have the Commercial Drivers License (CDL) or the Commercial Learners Permit (CLP).

If you wish to apply, you can click here, and, if you want to read more about the position, which is similar to those Notice of Examinations, you can click here.

Good luck!!

You also didn't have to pay to apply for the exam, unless that comes after.

This is for a full time position at MTA Bus, so you will be able to work out of all of the MTA Bus depots. As per the job posting, there are two different payscales depending on which depot you work out of:

If you work out of an ATU depot (Spring Creek, JFK or Far Rockaway), your top pay is $34.06 until a new contract is signed with the ATU locals of the MTA. If you work elsewhere (the TWU depots), the top pay is $36.42.

Also, if you go to an ATU depot, you can only pick into those three depots every system pick. Far Rockaway functions like Staten Island's Meredith depot, so don't expect to pick there right away.

This is NOT a civil service title so you cannot bring (or build) time with NYCERs.

However, I'm confused at the requirements. Are they saying your CDL has to have been valid for the last 3 years, or your drivers license?

You need to have your regular Class D license for at least 3 years but you must have at least your CDL permit when you apply.

So if i live in the Bronx what's the chance they'll throw me in Far Rockaway when I live right next to Eastchester Depot?

Far Rock functions like Meredith Depot in Staten Island if I'm not mistaken, so you might spend a few days there if you pick (or get forced) into JFK depot. Coming out of the 10 day, you're going to where they need you and to wherever your seniority affords you.

I lived in walking distance to Jamaica depot and I got forced to Staten Island. 🙃

@+Young+ You have any ideas? This exam seems extremely odd...

It didn't even ask me for my resume.

There's no resume to submit for any of the Bus Op positions. You just apply, take the exam and go from there.

As @SevenEleven already stated, if you click here and if you look on the bottom of the second page, you will see that the candidates must take and pass a multiple-choice test. One of the things which I noticed is that the candidates will be required to show their Commercial Drivers License (CDL) or Commerical Learners Permit (CLP) to take the test. In addition, I don't know how they going to start administering the test next month, when the last date of filing is November 30th, 2021, however that's just me.

If you applied for this position, chances are you got a voicemail earlier inviting you to take a Google Answer sheet about your permit status. After completing it, you are required to show up on Oct 23/24th for the test if you pass the pre-screening.
