Staying on Track: Addressing The MBTA’s Fiscal and Operational Challenges

Dr. Beverly Scott, General Manager, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA)
The MBTA serves over 1.2 million riders every day over multiple transportation modes and operates with a budget of $1.65 billion dollars.  Within the context of constant fiscal pressure and long-term underinvestment in transportation maintenance, keeping the MBTA running is a challenge.  The woman responsible for meeting that challenge is Beverly Scott, the incoming General Manager of the MBTA. Prior to coming to the MBTA, Dr. Scott served as Chief Executive Officer/ General Manager of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). Previously, she served as General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SRTD). Prior to that, she served as the General Manager of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA), one of four statewide public transit systems in the United States. She has held senior level positions at the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJT), the Washington Metropolitan Transportation Authority (WMATA), and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).  Dr. Scott holds a doctorate in political science, with a specialization in public administration, from Howard University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Fisk University (Magna Cum Laude; Phi Beta Kappa).
