The MTA’s leadership is being hit by a major shake-up. Two top executives - MTA Chairman and CEO Pat Foye, and interim New York City Transit President Sarah Feinberg - are stepping down this week, and it comes at a critical time for the transit system's recovery from the coronavirus.
The news regarding Feinberg broke on Thursday morning and came after Governor Andrew Cuomo's plan to split the agency's leadership sunk into limbo.
There is no permanent solution, but for now MTA's construction czar Janno Lieber will take over as chairman and CEO.
Lisa Daglian, who is the executive director of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA, a transit advisory board, joined anchor Bobby Cuza on “Inside City Hall” to talk more about the future of the MTA.
Daglian expressed confidence and optimism regarding Lieber’s appointment, saying that he possesses the experience necessary to manage the agency.
