Last week's article, "Committee Approves Bus Fare Hike," mistakenly reported that Capital Metro's 2008 budget projects a profit of "more than $30 million." In fact, according to Cap Metro spokesman Adam Shaivitz, that number ($33.5 million, to be exact) represents Cap Metro's projected net income prior to capital expenses – not profit. There were also errors in the article "Cap Metro Driver Gets Job Back," which reported that a harassing phone call had been traced to Capital Metro driver Travis Cornelius' route. In fact, according to Cornelius, he was driving along a different route, and the "probable cause" against him was not his route, but the statements of three Cap Metro employees who said the phone caller's voice belonged to Cornelius. He was exonerated not because he was clocking out 20 miles from the site but because, among other things, the federal arbitrator judged the voice-identification testimony to be suspect. In addition, the investigation was not conducted by the Austin Police Department but rather the Travis County Sheriff's Office.
