    Wouldn't nysp just replace them. I don't think the state police would merge with a different agency.

    Lol same boat as you right now. I'm on the DSNY side as of now but I do like the TBTA.

    That would be a huge pay bump but would require more training for TBTA Officers. I think they scrapped that idea a long time ago. Do you really think the greedy MTA would want to pay all TBTA personnel 35k+ more a year?
    It was scrapped because the TBTAs and union voted it down... sure they could pay out 35k more a year rather than going through a hiring process and paying pension, benefits, academy for new MTA recruits.

    I'm not on the TBTA "job". Just common sense. There's no need for the same number of personnel before and there really was never a need for that department before-hand anyway. Just a political toy for the state, nothing more.
    I don't see it lasting too long.
    Don't get me wrong, I hope the ones who took the test, including my wife, have an opportunity to get finally hired...but I just don't see it.
    I guess I'm just optimistic but I think they will hire off rhe list. Even if they decide a few years down the road that there's no need for enforcement, they can't just let everyone go, it's civil service.

    TBTA has now pivoted to Toll/Speed Enforcement now. The state has gotten them more RMP's (Cars) and are keeping the job alive. Why? Revenue.

    The Job isn't going away just yet.

    It's a decent job, it really isn't a real police job, but pays well with good benefits.
    Don't see them hiring ever again...they're going to let this job die through attrition.

    I really hope this job is not dead because MTA is having a lot of budget issues.

    It be nice if they become Police and official be TBTA Police.
