(a) It is necessary that a transit district be established to operate a single unified
public transportation system in the Sacramento region in order to meet the present
and future public transportation, and mass and rapid transit, needs of that region. The existing Sacramento Transit Authority, because of its limited legal and financial
base, is unable to solve the transit problems of the Sacramento region and provide
the needed comprehensive public transportation system.
(b) It is, therefore, necessary to provide a successor corporation to the authority,
to wit: a transit district, and to provide for the formation of such transit district
appointed by and responsive to the cities and counties in the Sacramento region served
by the district so that there will be sufficient governmental authority to solve the
existing and future transportation problems of the Sacramento region and provide the
needed comprehensive public transportation system.
(c) Because there is no general law under which such a district could be formed, the
adoption of a special act enabling the creation of a special district is required.
