MBTA board taps new GM
State transportation officials intend to name a new general manager for the MBTA by this evening, following public interviews today with two finalists. Both of the candidates vying to lead the T, the nation’s fifth-largest transit system, hail from the ninth largest, the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. Beverly A. Scott, general manager and chief executive of the Atlanta system, and Atlanta’s No. 2, Dwight Ferrell, are competing.
