    Chavez ravine is very accessible. There’s a shuttle from union station.

  • Kenny Easwaran

    I’m not sure how much accessibility matters for a football stadium that is empty 350 days of the year. Baseball really ought to be downtown, where there are lots of transportation options. It’s great that they have the shuttle, but in downtown there would be at least 5 buses within a couple blocks, plus four rail lines, rather than having to funnel everyone through one shuttle system.

  • Val

    I completely agree, but lets be honest, I can’t see anybody coughing up the money to build a new baseball stadium downtown, especially not after Dodger stadium recently being remodeled. It’s just annoying that people only think trains when they think public transit.
