Tonight we will be meeting with Andy Byford, Sr. VP of Amtrak's High Speed Rail Program. Mr. Byford was the former chief of New York's subway and buses, and most recently was in London where he oversaw the completion of the city's $22 billion Elizabeth Line. Today Mr. Byford is responsible for developing and implementing Amtrak's long-term strategy for high-speed rail. Most recently, Mr. Byford is leading the agreement with Amtrak and Texas Central Railways to help fund that project.
