The provisions of this subsection shall apply only to taxes authorized by sections 94.700 to 94.755 which have not been imposed to retire bonds issued pursuant to sections 94.700 to 94.755.

  2.  All moneys received by a city which issues bonds pursuant to the provisions of section 94.705 and imposes the tax authorized by such section to retire such bonds shall be deposited in a special trust fund and shall be used solely to retire such bonds, except to the extent that such funds are required for the operation and maintenance of the capital improvements made with the proceeds of the bonds.  Once all of such bonds have been retired, all funds remaining in the special trust fund required by this subsection shall be used solely for transportation purposes.  Any funds in the special trust fund required by this subsection which are not needed to meet current obligations under the bonds issued pursuant to section 94.705 may be invested by the governing body in accordance with applicable laws relating to the investment of other municipal funds.  The provisions of this subsection shall apply only to taxes authorized by section 94.705 which have been imposed to retire bonds issued pursuant to such section.

  3.  Any portion or all of the funds on deposit in a transportation trust fund may be appropriated and paid by a city directly to an interstate transportation authority, a city transit authority or a city utilities board for its general purposes in providing a public mass transportation system within an interstate transportation district or a municipality; provided that, before such funds may be appropriated and paid to any such interstate transportation authority, city transit authority or city utilities board with a service area population in excess of two million persons, such authority or board shall develop, for mutual agreement, a program of transit service to be provided to the city.  Such program shall define the service to be provided, the fare structure to be in effect, the estimated cost of the total transit service program of the authority or board, and the estimated cost of the city's portion of the program.  Such agreement shall be renewed prior to the beginning of each fiscal year and, when such agreement is reached, the city shall appropriate to the authority or board funds as are designated in the agreement for the period of the agreement.  A city may designate by contract with an interstate transportation authority, a city transit authority or a city utilities board that a designated portion of such funds shall be used by the interstate transportation authority, the city transit authority or the city utilities board to provide specific service or frequency of service to underwrite a certain fare structure, or for any other purposes consistent with providing a sound public mass transportation system.

  4.  Any provisions of sections 94.700 to 94.755 to the contrary notwithstanding, at least seven percent of the proceeds of any sales tax imposed under sections 94.700 to 94.755 that are appropriated and paid by a city to an interstate transportation authority, a city transit authority or a city utilities board shall be expended only for the purchase of new public mass transportation equipment, for the construction of public mass transportation facilities, or for any other capital expenditures or improvements to the property of the interstate transportation authority, city transit authority or city utilities board used in providing public mass transportation service, or to pay the interest or principal payments, or to satisfy sinking fund requirements on any negotiable notes or bonds or other instruments in writing issued for any of the above purposes.

  5.  Any provisions of sections 94.700 to 94.755 to the contrary notwithstanding, at least seven percent of the proceeds of any sales tax imposed under sections 94.700 to 94.755 that are appropriated and expended by a city for its general purposes in providing a public mass transportation system directly owned and operated by it shall be expended only for the purpose of new public mass transportation equipment, for the construction of public mass transportation facilities, or for any other capital expenditures or improvements to its properties used in providing public mass transportation service, or to pay the interest or principal payments, or to satisfy the sinking fund requirements on any negotiable notes or bonds or other instruments in writing issued for any of the above purposes.

  6.  No funds may be appropriated and paid to any such transportation authority, transit authority or utilities board, unless and until such authority or board shall file or shall have filed with the city paying such funds, and the secretary of state of the state of Missouri, annually and within six months after the close of such authority or board's fiscal year, an independently audited report and accounting as to such authority or board's management and administration of any and all funds received and expended by such authority or board.

  7.  Transportation authorities operating a public mass transportation system under sections 94.700 to 94.755 shall provide for interior and exterior advertising on each vehicle for mass transportation purposes.
