“Today’s announcement is good news for riders across the region: the MTA is in strong, steady hands with Janno Lieber at the helm.”

“As we enter our next normal, having reliable, innovative and knowledgeable leadership at the agency is welcome news. Janno has demonstrated his commitment to keeping the system running now and into the future, and to ensuring that riders and workers have a safe and reliable trip. We still have a long way to go to rebuild ridership and our transit network, including pushing forward with the ambitious and essential 2020-24 capital plan to make it the 21st century system we need and deserve. Janno has shown he can get the job done. We’ll continue to work in partnership with him and offer our informed recommendations to improve the ride for commuters as our region reopens.”

“This also marks the end of the Pat Foye era, and we appreciate his incredible work, including bringing about federal relief packages during this dark past year. We thank him for his incredible service and dedication to the region’s transportation system and its riders during one of the most difficult times in its history and wish him well.”
