Andy Byford Withdraws Resignation From NYC Subway System

NYC Transit boss Andy Byford on Friday said he wasn't leaving the subway system, after Politico reported he submitted his resignation a week ago.

"I'm not going anywhere and I remain laser focused on improving day-to-day service for millions of New Yorkers and delivering a transformed transit network," Byford said, according to a statement released on his behalf by the MTA.

Politico reported that Byford resigned last week, and that while he was reconsidering, he had not actually rescinded his letter as of Friday morning. 

But the MTA released an additional statement Friday afternoon saying "the letter has been rescinded."

Speculation about Byford's future has been incessant for months amid reports of tensions with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
