I got date for documentation. What documents they will ask for?

It should say in the documentation email on what documents they will need from you. Typically it’s sin#, blank cheque, proof if you are married, have a child, ( for benefits) etc.

If you look at google maps check out where Yonge street is.. anything to the left of Yonge street is west of Yonge street. Anything to the right of it is east of Yonge street. Brampton would be considered to be northwest of Yonge street although TTC doesn’t go that far. There are many stations west and east of Yonge street that you can go to to hop on a bus for your assignment. Hope that helps

Don’t worry about the failure rate. If you don’t listen to the instructors and don’t  put in the time then you won’t pass. If you don’t understand something just ask questions. It’s a commitment for 25 days.

Does anyone know how to become a Yard Dispatcher through the new VISION? (selecting buses to be put on routes) Is this a seniority think where I have to start as an operator? Look at the VISION program screenshot, that is what I mean. I got that on: 

https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2016/January_21/Reports/Presentation_Vision_Program.pdf  

Also, is there a "fleet manager" position at the TTC? I guess this would be the person who decides what buses to buy (or I think the government decides this indirectly by offering subsidies or offering to pay for them) and deciding what buses get retired, and when? How would you get there?

Like others have said, just listen to the instructors and put the time in. They practically spoon feed you and want you to pass. Those that fail choose to fail. Once they figure out it's not the job they thought it was or wasn't their cup of tea.

This job is not for everyone.

yard dispatcher jobs are filled through internal bidding.

Contact the leader instructor. It can't hurt. I heard one of the students contacted him after he failed and a few months later they contacted him back to do a retry. His situation was one where he had like 9 different instructors and he said he couldn't adapt to 9 different training methods. *shrug who knows. 

They approved my Appeal...

Finally Got my training date today more than a month after documentation. Starting October 15 and heading to Mt Dennis after. Good luck to everyone still waiting it could be another 25 days after we’re done training. Super nervous about going to Mt. Dennis 😬

Hi there I’ll be starting my training January 7 and will be stationed at mount Dennis.how did you find that location?

Finally got training date, October 1.

Been in the process since February but had issues with medical which dragged me down.

Just too bad I got Mt. Dennis when I live in Ajax.

Hey I live in Scarborough and just received my training start date for Jan 7th for mount dennis division as well. I was just wondering how you got through training and how is mount Dennis?

Routes are tough, lots of tight turns, but if you can get through training at Mt.Dennis then you can work any division, you will learn how to drive really fast or you will fail.

My advice is listen to your instructor, if you're not sure of anything ASK!! Don't be a hero, or think you know everything, take your time and you'll be ok.

do you know of any summer jobs the TTC or any GTA transit agency has for a High school student?

ttc has student summer jobs.  They are tough in get in.  Cleaner positions are the easiest to get.
