If You Build It with Less Parking, They Will Still Come

We're nearly a couple of weeks into baseball season, and fans of the Washington Nationals are enjoying their new transit-, bike- and pedestrian-friendly stadium. The DC complex, with its transit links, shuttle buses and valet bike parking, is so accessible -- and city efforts to encourage fans to get there by alternate means so successful -- that on Opening Day its relatively few parking lots weren't even full, reports Greater Greater Washington:

Good for DC for resisting the warnings from team owners and variouscommentators that the world would end unless the entire neighborhoodwere converted to parking as New York did to the South Bronx. Looks like parking demand is elastic, after all.

In related news, there's no news on whether or not there will be MTA or DASH buses to Dodger Stadium this season.  Baseball season started two weeks ago this coming Monday for the Dodgers.
