The head of New Jersey Transit has stepped down just a few weeks after coming under heavy criticism for massive delays at the Super Bowl.

Executive Director James Weinstein gave Governor Chris Christie his resignation letter Tuesday.

He'll serve until the beginning of March, when Ronnie Hakim will replace him.

Hakim is currently the executive director of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority.

Weinstein came under fire after thousands were left stranded at MetLife Stadium for hours after the end of the Super Bowl waiting for a train.

Christie released a statement about the moves, saying, in part, "I also want to thank Jim Weinstein for his dedication and service through our entire first term together. I wish him well in the next phase of his career."
