MTA Appoints Sarah Feinberg As Interm NYCT President




NEW YORK, NY-Train Mommy or a complete bust? After the resignation of the previous NYCT President, Andy “Train Daddy” Byford, the MTA beings the search for his replacement. It’s a woman this time. I’ve never heard her in my life, but I’ll give her open space and opportunity to showcase her skills and see what she can bring to the table. Her name is Sarah Feinberg and here’s a background history of her.

She is the founder of Feinberg Strategies, LLC, a strategic business and communications consulting practice focused on the tech sector. At the Federal Railroad Administration, Feinberg served as the second woman in history to lead the agency, and held a number of posts in the Obama administration; one of them being Chief of Staff for U.S. Department of Transportation. At a press conference at Fulton Transit Center on Wednesday, MTA Chair Pat Foye said Feinberg was picked out of the agency’s board members for the position, but Feinberg says her job as a mother guided her decision to fill the role on a temporary basis.

As FRA administrator, Feinberg is credited with enforcing safety regulations that saw the implementation of Positive Train Control and oversaw multi-billion dollar investments; two of those being the largest loans in the history of U.S. DOT. According to the MTA, she also directed efforts at the FRA toward addressing the opioid crisis, though in what capacity, they did not say. Prior to starting Feinberg Strategies, Feinberg served as the administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration. The FRA serves as the sole safety regulator of the U.S. rail system. Feinberg was nominated for this post by President Obama, and later confirmed by the Republican-led U.S. Senate.
Prior to serving in the White House, Feinberg spent several years on Capitol Hill. Feinberg also served as the director of policy communications at Facebook, and as Bloomberg LP’s director of communications and business strategy. Feinberg served on the Amtrak Board of Directors during her time as FRA administrator, and currently serves on the StoryCorps Board of Directors. She is a resident of New York and a native of Charleston, West Virginia. Feinberg’s role doesn’t go into effect until March 9th, while the search continues for a permanent NYCT President.

In other news, the MTA slates to cut over 1,900 jobs in 2020 just to save $1.6B. An updated budget projection, as of Wednesday morning, shows that the MTA will be in the black throughout 2022; a stark contrast to the doom and gloom of late 2018 when the deficit was expected to reach $634 million by 2022. Lastly, for those who ride the (F) train between Brooklyn and Queens, you’re in for a challenging commute. Starting later this year to 2021, (F) trains will be rerouted via the (A)/(C) Lines in both directions between West 4th Street-Washington Square and Jay Street-MetroTech in both directions, due to Fix and Fortify Hurricane Sandy repair work.
