This petition probably has to do with the abandonment of the Interurban Electric Railway (former SP) East Bay commuter lines. There is probably a concomitant application from the Key System to assume operations over some of the IER lines subject to these abandonment proceedings. The IER abandonment took place, I believe, in January 1941, as did the KSTL operation over former IER lines, so the time line seems appropriate.
