Of course National City and Chula Vista benefits from Comic-con. But not as much as other cities do. I think primarily we have to build up the trolley stops to present more upscale shops and stores... and low-cost or free parking. Most of the convention-goers park at Hazard Center, or Fashion Valley... or even Qualcomm and bring in lots of business in after-convention dinners, before-convention breakfasts, etc.

But I tried once starting from the 8ths street lot. Parking was horrible and there was nothing to do around there. Moreover, there was a transfer in order to get to the convention center.

So if Chula vista or NC wants to take advantage of future Comic-cons, I suggest (in order):

(1) Make a special "Convention" line that goes from San Ysidro to Convention Center (bypassing the needed transfer at Imperial and/or American Plaza). That way a convention goer can can hop on a trolley and get off at the Con without any hassle.
(2) Upgrade eateries and shops at the stops. Give convention goers something to do before and after the con. I don't know how much can be improved in a year... but it's needed
(3) Make parking closer to the stops, easier, free and **SAFE** feeling.
