“Andy Byford’s resignation is a terrible loss for a public transportation system that needs accountability and leadership.

Throughout his tenure, Andy approached projects with grace and optimism. Whether it was working together on the L Train project, the 14th Street Busway, or simply running into him riding the 6 train, Andy Byford demonstrated an enthusiasm for not only creating a better public transportation system for the City of New York, but a genuine enthusiasm for public service.

I am thankful to Andy Byford for his service to the city and I hope that his successor will approach this role with a similar candor and focus on improving the public transportation experience for all New Yorkers.”
