MTA NYC Transit Bus Operator FAQ

Recommended Posts

I took a drug test on 3/15/13 and still haven't received any calls or notice letters for 2901. 

Have you been in contact with any of the employment unit staff to inquire since then?

 You can take any upcoming test however they tell youthere is a  4-5 years wait to be able to be rehired/ go fortraining . I heard of people appealing it to have that time frame reduced but i dot't know if it worked. It made 5 yrs for me this June

Is there a number I can call ?

I don't know the number to the unit that handles appeals but, here is the general number to the employment unit ask them for the correct department/unit you need to contact.

Just curious if anyone knows what they do for physical examinations. 

You get checked out by the doc 1st physically. Then doc's in white coats give u the rest of the exams like EKG,Hearing,Eye,Blood Pressure,Weight exams. Then u go c the 1st doc that gave u the physical and she gives u the overall of ur exams whether u qualify or disqualified. If u qualify u go back to front desk where u started ur day and they give another sheet to go take urine test #2. Hope that helps.

2-Does the MTA provide a bus for the road test? I have my CDL B PS Permit.  Or do I have to go through a driving school. If so Any recommemdations?

3-How many Questions are on the Bus Operator Test? I'm doing the upcoming 4600 exam.

 

Thank you in advance

Well I finally heard from the mta yesterday 8/29. I have to go for my third D/t on sept.3rd again without my 20 page booklet. I asked why I have to give another piss sample the lady told me cause the last one I did had expired 7/24. This's starting to get a lil annoying cause I'm missing out on money at my job to spend a whole day at 180 livingston just to give em a third piss sample and not knowing when I'll be going in for final processing. Has anyone heard from the mta to go in on the 3rd of sept? Let me know.

That's just how government works, they want it Ll in order just in case they need to hire tommorow or next year, they usually don't know till last minute either

My advice to anyone thinking of moving to tampa fl. If your close to retirement and can obtain retirement elsewhere specifically up North. Get your Northern pension first FL FRS system wont last long. Take from me I am a HART BUS OP.
