LIRR President Patrick Nowakowski spoke to the press after a train accident that happened in Jamaica, Queens. He was the chief who oversaw the LIRR during its worst performance, and, as such, he has decided to stop down.
The LIRR had its worst performance in 18 years in 2017. There were over 21,000 late trains.
Nowakowski is resigning on Friday after overseeing the job for four years.
“LIRR riders deserve a new leader who will demand immediate reform and who will level with and speak directly to them,” State Senator Todd Kaminsky said in a statement.
After the accident in Queens, Nowakowski decided to step down.
