Former MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott has withdrawn her name from consideration for a spot on the National Transportation Safety Board.
A White House official told WBUR that Scott "requested her nomination be withdrawn due to personal reasons related to her family."
President Obama nominated Scott for a term on the five-member board in July.
Scott abruptly resigned from the T in February, as the transit agency struggled mightily under record-breaking snowfall that caused severe delays and forced the T to completely shutdown several times.
Before coming to Boston, Scott served as the CEO of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority from 2007 to 2012.
