NEW YORK —Metro-North President Joseph J. Giulietti says he'll retire in August after a 46-year career in railroading, New York City-area media report.

Giulietti became the commuter railroad's president in February 2014 shortly after a deadly overspeed accident at the Spuyten Duyvil, N.Y., brought further unwanted attention to the agency.

In his retirement letter, Giulietti says that he led the fight to return the commuter railroad back to full fitness by concentrating on good railroading basics and to safe railroad practices.

Prior to his three-and-a-half years, he headed Tri-Rail in Florida. His career began in New York with Metro-North predecessors Penn Central and Conrail.
