Doesn't it seem like some of these stations would be far more valuable as TOD pads rather than surface park and rides? I'm thinking Golden Valley Road specifically. You could fit 200+ units on that little triangle, in place of ~90 vehicles.

That station is downright weird anyway. It's surrounded by park and the backside of the golf course. At least if they built something in that parcel there'd be a reason to use that station.

Duh, that station is for getting to your car.

Also, I couldn't stand to watch that video - 80% of it is just suburban flyover.

This reminds me why I much prefer the streetcar plans to these regional suburb links. Vehicle type isn't what's important, it's the regional vs. core service levels.

Presentation posted for next Monday's Transportation Committee meeting. The schedule has been pushed back a bit, with the opening in 2022 now.
