Gov. Mario M. Cuomo of New York this week released the list of nominations for members of the board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Of the four, one has already been confimed by the state Senate. State Senator Norman J. Levy, R-Freeport, and chairman to the senate's transportation committee, has delayed action on the other nominees until he can hold hearings, presumably in the fall, a spokesman for the governor said.

The senate confirmed Richard T. Nasti's appointment in the waning days of the legislative session earlier this month. Mr. Nasti is a vice president and general manager of the New York Post Co. Earlier in his career, he had been a vice president in the public finance department of Piane Webber Inc. and worked on bond offerings for mass transit projects.

Also nominated were Bernard B. Beal, chief executive of the municipal bond firm of M.R. Beal & Co.; Prema Mathai-Davis, commissioner of the New York City Department for the Aging; and Sally Hernandez-Pinero, New York City deputy mayor for finance and economic development.

Members of the board, other than city and state employees, receive $150 per diem in compensation, not to exceed $15,000 annually.
