BOSTON — Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) GM Beverly Scott announced her resignation, effective April 11, several sources reported, including CBS Boston.
The MBTA suspended rail service Monday night and Tuesday to clear snow from its tracks amid a record-setting period of snowfall in the Boston area. Gov. Charlie Baker and others had criticized the MBTA for its lackluster performance during the extreme snow and cold.
In a press conference on Tuesday prior to her resignation, Scott blamed poor funding and aging infrastructure for the MBTA’s problems. For the full story, click here.
