Statement from MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick J. Foye on Senate Confirmation of Polly Trottenberg as Deputy Secretary of Transportation

Updated April 13, 2021 8:00 p.m.

“I want to congratulate former New York City Transportation Commissioner and former MTA Board member Polly Trottenberg on her confirmation to serve as deputy transportation secretary at USDOT.

“As a leading expert on transportation policy, Deputy Secretary Trottenberg is uniquely qualified for this critical role. I’m confident she will deliver for Americans on the federal level – just as she did in New York– as the administration seeks to pass and implement the historic infrastructure program outlined in the American Jobs Plan.

“We are excited to continue working with Polly and Secretary Buttigieg to strengthen and promote public transportation while we recover from this unprecedented crisis.”
