TTC CEO quitting to take job in New York
The CEO of the TTC, Andy Byford, will be stepping down and leaving Toronto for the Big Apple. The city's transit boss will depart after just over five years with the commission.
Mayor John Tory also issued a statement thanking Byford for his years of service.
My friend and boss, Andy Byford, is leaving the #TTC to be president and CEO of New York City Transit. So proud and gutted at the same time.— Brad Ross (@bradTTC) November 21, 2017
During his time with the TTC, Byford sought to modernize the transit system.
He worked to launch the King Street Pilot project now underway and will stay on the job just in time to open the TTC's new subway extension.
Deputy CEO Rick Leary is set to take over for Byford beginning December 22.
