On September 3, Reuters will host a virtual Newsmaker event with Patrick Foye, Chairman & CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York City.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused enormous financial challenges for New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority. Ridership numbers are at an all-time low and the pressure to deliver clean, timely and safe transportation services are extremely high. Foye will join Reuters Editor-at-Large Axel Threlfall for a discussion about the issues the organization is facing, as part of the Mobility Boardroom series on the future of transportation.
