Paper Exam applications will not be distributed in person. You must apply online during the Exam application filing period.

If you need assistance submitting an exam application online, please refer to the online application guide. If you encounter problems submitting an exam fee payment online, please refer to the online payment tutorial. For issues submitting an application, contact the MTA Business Center at bscservice@mtabsc.org.

Please click on an exam’s title on the exam schedule during the application period to view the Notice of Examination (NOE), which contains key details, including:

  • Requirements to complete the exam
  • Application instructions
  • Expected test dates
  • Other exam-specific test information

Please note: When the first day of the application period for an exam occurs on a Saturday or Sunday, the application period may open on the preceding Friday.

To change your contact information:

Email us at examsunit@nyct.com with the subject line "CONTACT INFO UPDATE". If you are a Transit Employee, you should also submit the request to the BSC via the Employee Portal at www.mymta.info.

If you are on an established Civil Service list, you must also keep your contact information current with NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) via email at oasys@dcas.nyc.gov. You may miss a chance for appointment or promotion if DCAS does not have your correct contact information or SSN. For more information, please refer to the Special Circumstances guide.

Important Announcement Regarding COVID-19 Vaccination: As of March 13, 2023, the MTA has suspended the COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all new hires, except those hired into direct health services-related roles.

Return to Hiring List for COVID vaccine related issues only: If you were canvassed for employment off an exam-based hiring source for New York City Transit, Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority (MaBSTOA), MTA Bridges and Tunnels or the MTA Bus Company and did not participate in or complete the employment process because you were unable or unwilling to submit proof that you received a COVID-19 vaccination, you can click here to access and complete a form to request to have your name returned to the hiring list for that agency. Please only complete the form if your request is related with the COVID vaccine. For any other requests, related with the employment process, you may email employmentcenter@nyct.com.
