President Barack Obama on Tuesday, July 28, nominated Beverly Scott, the former general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), for membership on the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
Scott served as the MBTA’s general manager until April 2015, when she stepped down following severe weather-related service disruptions. She began her stint at the agency in December 2012, and previously served as chief executive officer and general manager of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.
Meanwhile, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Secretary Stephanie Pollack tapped Brian Shortsleeve to serve as the MBTA’s chief administrator.
