("Transportation impacts have been the biggest source of public debate for the stadium, despite AEG's insistance that Sunday traffic around Downtown—the time when most NFL home games would be played—is light and manageable.

PDF : "Building successful TOD requires thinking beyond the individual station and understanding the role each neighborhood and station area plays in the regional network of transit-oriented places. It also requires an understanding of the real estate market,major employment centers, and travel patterns in the region. Regional planning for successful TOD projects is really about the coordination of existing plans for growth, transit, housing and jobs, as well as programs and policies at all levels of government.")
