Jay H. Walder, the chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority since 2009, is resigning to take over the MTR Corporation, a transportation company based in Hong Kong, the authority announced on Thursday.
A native New Yorker, Mr. Walder, 52, was selected by Gov. David A. Paterson in July 2009 to run the authority, which operates the city’s bus and subway systems and the Metro-North Railroad and the Long Island Rail Road. He will leave office on Oct. 21, the authority said.
