The San Francisco Examiner reports that Muni Executive Director Nathaniel Ford will leave the transit agency by the end of the month.

Ford has been rumored to be a candidate for a position with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, but members from the authority delayed the decision in choosing its next executive director back in March.

The announcement of his departure arrives at the same time Muni operators were forced to accept a labor contract by an independent arbitrator. The Examiner reports that Ford would not leave until labor talks were finished.

An unnamed Municipal Transportation Agency official told the Examiner on Wednesday that he will mostly likely step down from his position by the end of the month.
