More from BART’s Blalock:
On the A’s initial plan for a train station to serve a ballpark at the Pacific Commons site, Blalock said it would be easier said than done. The proposed train site on a 40-acre city owned lot could potentially be served by ACE and Capital Corridor.
But Capitol Corridor has said they don’t have enough trains to help out, according to Blalock. As for ACE, for it to provide train service a whole bunch of new switches and parallel tracks would have to be built, Blalock said. “It’s not a little spit in the river.”
Blalock still favors putting the stadium near Warm Springs BART, but said he was surprised just how fierce the opposition has been. Even one of his buddies in the Kiwanis Club is opposed.
