Correction

In the March 1 article “Citizen’s group eyes motorists to make up SFMTA’s budget deficit,” it was incorrectly reported that the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s Citizen’s Advisory Council had made several recommendations to balance the agency’s budget shortfall. It was actually a council subcommittee that made those recommendations. The full council has not taken any action yet on those recommendations.
