Re: Annual Salary of MTA motorman?

And how can you compare the hourly rate of a NYCT Train Operator to other cities? Is the rate of an MBTA train operator higher or lower than the hourly salary of NYCT's counterparts?

MBTA train operator, light rail division -- lowest rate is approx $21/hr; highest rate is approx $26/hr. Traditionally pilots are paid 10 cents per hour more -- but this seem to have gone away in recent contract renegotiations.

You can compare the rates because other disciplines in NYC are paid approximately 20%-40% more in NYC than in BOS. Even within the transit discipline -- for example MTA pays a "Planner I" or "Systems Analyst" type job about $58,000-$71,000 per annum. MBTA pays $45,000 for an equivalent position. The MTA also has "Bus Garage Analyst" positions, which are not available at the MBTA. Those are paid about $38,000-$46,000 if my memory serves me correctly.

Note: an analyst with CTA (Chicago) is paid at roughly similar rates to Boston, if slightly higher. Range from $44,000-$60,000 per annum.

The long short of that is: I am surprised by the relatively low pay rates of NYCT motorpeople, given that other disciplines have a "New York differential" that is a de-facto 20-40% pay rise.
