Fun Fact: Did you know that KKCS has been working with LA Metro before it was even formed? The California State Legislature created LA Metro in April 1993 via a merger of the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD) and the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (LACTC). The SCRTD was created in 1964 to operate the bus system in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties, while the LACTC was created in 1976 to oversee public transit in Los Angeles County. KKCS started work with both of these predecessor agencies back in the late 1980s.
