    AT&T park has 4,000 parking spaces. What’s the difference in attendance between baseball and basketball? Ideally there would be no parking whatsoever for any sports venue, and instead the venue should invest in better transit connections. But how do these two compare? I know AT&T park is used as an example as a transit-oriented stadium.

    The inherent problem with the Mission Bay stadium is there are only two main thoroughfares to access it — 3rd St. and 16th St. I know someone who works at Mission Bay, and during a Giants game it’s already rough leaving that area because they close off a lane on 3rd St. Closing a lane off on a major artery is like adding salt to a wound

    I don’t know if Muni can handle the extra load but they better develop a plan. Driving to the stadium won’t be a viable option but there will always be those who do it anyway.

    AT&T park has just over twice as many seats as the future Warriors arena will. I’m not sure how well the T can cope with post-game ridership, though. The platforms are not very wide. Maybe they can put the stairs down and block off the street to allow boarding a second train away from the platform.

    AT&T holds more than 40,000. In comparison, the new Warriors arena is planning to hold 18,000.

    The best way to get to games will probably be by bicycle.

    Parking meter enforcement has been suspended for today… is Muni free today? I can probably guess the answer to that…

  • Mario Tanev

    I can understand why they did it (they need the resources elsewhere). But why they had to announce it is beyond me, what is the rationale for that?
