After the allocation instructions have been received from the transportation planning agency, the interest accruing shall be deposited in a separate account maintained by the Orange County Treasurer, which shall be known as the Orange County Unified Transportation Trust.

The commission shall approve those claims which will not result in the undesirable duplication of public transportation services, and which will provide for a coordinated public transportation system, in the region.

The commission may, on its own motion, arbitrate differences (1) between the various applicants, (2) between an applicant and a city or county regarding the costs of the extension of services, and (3) between the various entities within the region regarding priorities and the order that various improvements are to be made.

Before the Orange County Transit District may expend any of its allocation it has retained for the development of rapid transit for purposes other than such development, the Orange County Transportation Commission shall make a determination that the funds are not required for any exclusive public mass transit guideway purpose within the foreseeable future.

(Added by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1333.)

The interest amount shall be determined by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission based on its estimate of the average rate of interest earned by the unallocated apportionment during the prior fiscal year.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1014, Sec. 3.)
