The new entity is titled the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and will assume its role nine months after the Governor and state legislature approve the blueprint drafted by Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley and sanctioned by the SCRTD and LACTC Boards.

More information, including comments and statements from SCRTD Board Members, can be found in the January, 1992 issue of Headway, the Southern California Rapid Transit District employee news magazine.
