2 Atlanta transit executives vie to lead MBTA

The two top mass transit officials in Atlanta have been named the finalists to become the next general manager of the MBTA, state transportation officials confirmed Monday, after more than a year of temporary leadership in one of Boston’s most politically challenging jobs.

Both candidates, Beverly A. Scott and Dwight A. Ferrell, are expected to be interviewed in public by the state’s transportation board Sept. 24, and a vote to hire one of the candidates could come immediately after the interviews, Transportation Secretary Richard A. Davey said.
