So how do you guys think the parking will work out? We are trying to host a Superbowl too. Those familiar with the area, are there going to be traffic issues?
There will always be traffic issues with a stadium this size, but it should be much better than Candlestick for several reasons...
1) MUCH more access via public transit: VTA Light Rail drops off right in front of the stadium, Heavy Rail within walking distance.
2) Large roads all around (4-6 Lane roads in most directions).
3) VERY close to 2 Freeways (237 and 101) and several entrances/exits.
The negatives are that there isn't as much surface parking immediately adjacent to the stadium. Much more parking will be in business lots in the area and a bit of a longer walk to get to the stadium.
As for hosting a Super Bowl, that's the beauty of the site. Many events during SB week could have everyone on foot the entire week. A number of hotels, the Convention Center, and the Stadium are all within a block of each other. IE...less cars in the area to begin with.
