Large campuses will offer amenities. It would be interesting though to 1) find out the percentage that take advantage of the service, and 2) the percentage of large, medium and small companies that comprise the industrial parks around Lawrence and Montague Expressways. I'd say the majority of them have less than 500 employees, but I dunno. The most they'd offer is vouchers for existing PT.

That's an incredibly inaccurate/incorrect/insane statement. Sorry.

San Antonio is the oldest city of the three. It has the bigger urban core at least the urban footprint or grid of the three. San Diego has the edge for now but S.A. has lots of potential and is definitely working on gentrifying some of its oldest urban neighborhoods.

Urban and San Antonio don't belong in the same sentence.

Why did you forget to add San Bernardino on the list, California's other urban gem?

San Antonio is seeing a lot of residential development along the Riverwalk/Museum Reach, Lower Boadway,Midtown, and other areas in the central core. It's hard to deny that S.A. is becoming more urban.
