Background

A couple of months ago, I emailed Andy Byford, CEO of the TTC, for an interview on The Null Space to talk about his past experiences, and more importantly, life running the 3rd largest transportation system in North America.

Today, November 6, is the day I had a chance to do this interview, and wow, was I ever impressed! As soon as I walked in, I can tell I was not meeting some ordinary Joe. I must admit, I was a bit nervous, but Andy's openness, and desire to exhibit the good work he and his team are doing made the interview very easy! (apart from the fact the microphone didn't work for a bit!)

So, if you want to listen to Andy Byford's past, the path he took to be where he is now, the ups and downs of running the TTC, the uniqueness of Torontonians, and the dedication to the basic mantra of hard work, listen to the recording below!

Toronto, we are under good hands!!!
