Way, way out there

fremont_map.jpgIf you’ve been following the A’s stadium story, you know they plan to move to a new “Cisco Field” in Fremont, miles from any BART or train stop (see map at right). Though several significant obstacles remain — such as the little matter of the land development company that controls the swath of land not yet signing off on the plan — the A’s already have several web pages full of drawings posted.

Yesterday the Mercury News’s Scott Herhold performed a simple experiment: just try to get there. His findings after the jump.

From Herhold’s article:

By car: one hour to go 13.8 miles during evening rush hour
By train/bicycle: 1 hour 35 minutes from San Jose during the noon hour
By bus: One hour 47 minutes.

Und so wieter. His verdict: fans will have “a choice of pain.”

Now that’s what I call a marketing slogan. “Cisco Field — Pick Your Pain!”

    Ouch. Any chance they’ll reconsider?
