The president of the Metro-North Railroad is stepping down, sources tell the New York Times.

According to the publication, Howard Permut announced his plans at a meeting on Monday afternoon.

Permut has been a member of the Metro-North team since 1983. He became president in 2008.

In the last year, Metro North has encountered some troubling times. There was a train collision, a worker's death and the first passenger fatalities in the company's three decade history after a train derailment.

According to the New York Times, Permut said at the  meeting that the derailment was "something that I will always take with me."
