January 23, 2020

Andy Byford has resigned from the MTA. The New York City Transit president resigned after two years reigning over the city’s subways and buses, the MTA announced Thursday.

“Andy Byford will be departing New York City Transit after a successful two years of service,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Pat Foye. “We thank him for his work.”
