The Metropolitan Transit Authority board approved a controversial and hastily wrought reorganization plan on Wednesday that could cut as many as 2,700 jobs and save MTA as much as $530 million annually over the next three years — but the speed with which it was developed, limited public input, the fact that it’s not exactly complete and fears that planned consolidation will wrest control from popular NYC Transit President Andy Byford and other MTA division heads has many concerned.
