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.
