“I regularly read Signal Problems, actually,” Andy Byford said unprompted at the beginning of our chat on Friday. “There's lots of good stuff in there.” Today, that “good stuff” is the man himself, who I chatted with at the tail end of what had to be one of the more interesting weeks of his NYCT tenure (his one-year anniversary is coming up on January 16). On Thursday, Governor Cuomo and a panel of engineering professors announced the L shutdown was no longer necessary. As they did so, Andy Byford sat in the audience.
Andy's anniversary is the 17th, not the 16th! :)
YES! This is great. You are great. Andy is comforting, and hope-fueling.
