NYC Transit President Howard Roberts is leaving the station - with a severance package of approximately $300,000, officials said Wednesday.

 

His resignation was accepted Wednesday morning by MTA Chairman Jay Walder, ending Roberts' 2 1/2-year-run as top executive of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's bus and subway division, the MTA said.

 

Walder - on the job just one month - had promised to bring new leadership to the MTA, which also operates two commuter railroads and has other divisions.

And Walder is from London too...Londonites are known for having a subway system with old rolling stock that's taken care of and put to use. This may probably mean that the R32s may stick around for a little but longer cuz the oldest rolling stock car London had was 60 when it retired a couple years ago.

I hope Jay Walder does a way better job. So far from what he has proposed, he has gotten my vote. This may be a start of a new beginning

That has been done before, you just have to know where to look

 

That is correct. Last year, they ran a vintage bus along one of the crosstown lines.

Not to mention that the museum trains do run often.

 

Yup just within the past 12 months or so alone:

 

-Lo-V's for last game of Old Yankee Stadium

-ToMC/Redbirds for last game of Shea Stadium

-Holiday Arnines (5 or 6 weeks in Nov/Dec '09)

-Arnines for Duke Ellington Day out to the Rockaways

-Lo-V's for first game of New Yankee Stadium

-ToMC/Lo-Vs for June nostalgia train

-Arnines for August nostalgia train

-Lo-V's for many of the home Yankees playoff games

 

there might've been others, but this is most

Is he really a Londoner? I was told Walder was from the Rockaways and that he went to Beach Channel High School.

His last job was in London on the tube. He is an American though.
