Despite receiving a vote of support from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, General Manager for the MBTA, Beverly Scott submitted her resignation on Wednesday -- effective May 11th.
Scott had become the focus of scrutiny following several weeks of treacherous winter weather in New England, which at times brought the public transit system in Boston to a screeching halt.
"Over the next sixty (60) days, I will work with you, and the Board to effect a smooth transition. During this period, I will place priority attention on working with our team to: return "T" services to normalcy following these unprecedented weather conditions..." said Scott in her letter.
