Glenn Lunden *85’s childhood fascination with Lionel trains has culminated in 31 years (and counting) with MTA New York City Transit. He oversees the scheduling of 8,215 subway trips carrying 6 million riders daily. If emergency rerouting is necessary at 3 a.m., Lunden is called into action. He’s “keenly aware” of how often trains should be running at all times of day, so if he finds himself waiting on a platform too long, he’ll investigate.
