Boston-Area Transit System Head Resigns After Snow Delays

Wednesday, 11 Feb 2015 04:42 PM

BOSTON  — The head of the Boston-area public transportation system is stepping down after complaints about her decision to suspend rail service following a snowstorm.

The resignation of Massachusetts Bay Transportation Agency General Manager Beverly Scott came Wednesday. The agency has come under fire for its on-again, off-again service problems during recent snowstorms, including the decision to suspend its subway and rail service on Monday night through Tuesday.

In a letter to the chairman of the state transportation board, Scott said she'll be leaving her post April 11.

Scott didn't give a specific reason for her departure. She says she will focus attention during the next two months on restoring normalcy to the aging system.

The governor on Monday called the performance of the T "unacceptable."
