(5) In the event the membership of any such transit authority consists of more than one (1) public body, and in the event the resolution of the board of such transit authority <br>is directed to all such public bodies, all such public bodies may, by adoption of <br>appropriate resolutions or ordinances determine that the proposition for the <br>establishment of the mass transportation program, together with the identified <br>funding source therefor, shall be submitted to the electorate of the transit area of the <br>transit authority rather than to the separate electorates of such public bodies. In that <br>event, the election on the proposition regarding the mass transportation program <br>shall be held simultaneously within the transit area by all such public bodies and the <br>notice of the election shall be uniform.
