Dodgers, Trolley Still At Impasse
Via LA StreetsBlog, Eric Richardson reports that the Dodgers apparently have taken no steps to ensure the return of the Dodger Trolley. LA MTA officials haven't been asleep, however, and even plotted out a new route that avoids congestion on Sunset. Frankly, I'm not sure what to make of this, because it does remind me that a trolley would — at least in theory — cut into parking revenues, and the Dodgers are under no obligation to give that up.
The McCourts obviously have no incentive to spend any money on the shuttle service (it's not a trolley, though I wish it were). It's a double-whammy for them: not only does it result in lost parking revenue, but they actually have to pay money out-of-pocket. It's lose-lose for them, and we know they probably can't afford the cash outlay. It does reveal their true colors, though. You know that Arte Moreno would handle it differently.
