How do you think people get to the station? Downtown Bethesda doesn't even have 10% of the Bethesda population. How are people supposed to get to work?
They walk on grass and through strip malls thats how LOL

What office parks are in DT Rosslyn, Ballston, Bethesda or Silver Spring? In fact Wilson Blvd in Arlington looks like parts of Wilshire Blvd in LA.

You are laughably unknowledgeable about the things you write about. Just do us all a favor and stop pretending you have any real knowledge of the area.

There are tons of Metro-related parking lots in downtown Bethesda. Start with the big parking lot I always used by the library, at Arlington & Moreland, two blocks from the Metro.

Rowhouses = compactness, urban form and creates density!

You mean to say that you have no argument so will just make a stupid comment that is easily disproven by looking at the Arlington streets without even sidewalks.

So why does 800,000 ride the Metro every day? And another 400,000 ride the bus?

No, they don't offer Metro rates. the garages are for people who work in the local area and they are not cheap.. Nobody uses them for commuting unless they are in a pinch, and then only for a day or two. Many are lease only, and many fill up very early.

Those places are like mini Texas Medical Centers, nothing urban about them, buildings do not equate urban, you are from DC you should already know this since DC has no skyline.
