Central Subway’s Citizens Advisory Group set to meet on Thursday Deck:

The Central Subway’s Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) will meet on Thursday to receive scheduling and planning updates on The City’s ambitious transit undertaking, which is currently facing a $137 million shortfall.

The subway, which will extend Muni Metro service from the SoMa District to Chinatown, is slated to begin operations by 2018, although it must come up with a viable funding plan in the next three months in order to secure $870 million in federal dollars earmarked for the plan.

On Thursday, the CAG will discuss several issues of the plan, including the proposed design of the subway’s Union Square station. The meeting is scheduled to take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parc 55 Hotel in downtown San Francisco.
