WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
In a response to my comments that Denver's transportation problems could be just as bad as previous conventions, the DNCC (Democratic National Convention Committee) notes:
The convention in Denver is likely to be less disruptive than in previous cities because of the Pepsi Center's walking-distance proximity to many hotels and post-Convention event venues. This will greatly reduce the number of buses in use in Denver vs. prior Convention host cities. In addition, the number of parking lots arond the Pepsi Center (as compared to the Fleet Center in Boston) will allow for more space to sort people and stage buses around Convention hours, again, minimizing disruption. This combination of a high number of walking-distance hotels and post-Convention event venues AND considerable lot space around the Convention venue is something we have not had at least as far back as the '96 Convention in Chicago.Having seen buses lined up on closed streets around previous convention sites, available parking lots adjacent to the site should make things easier in Denver.
