I can see finch being a draw due to the massive parking lot, even kipling. Downsview and Wilson didnt/don't really have the amount of parking that finch and kipling have. Finch I feel also resonated in Brampton because of the rte 77 service to finch. So for someone in Brampton for the last 30 years "going to the subway" generally meant finch. That being said I'm kind of surprised that they didn't know about yorkdale's parking. As my experience 20 odd years ago was that yorkdales was popular among the casual entertainment oriented trips from the west into the city. The garage was generally packed on days when the leafs/jays/raptors had games, especially on weekends.They didn't know that there was a subway in Vaughan. They usually drove to Kipling or Finch. I had to explain to them the other day how to use the GO Train and it was a mind blowing experience for them...
I'm starting to feel alot of people don't take transit because they don't even know it exists.
Note I'm not including the recent subway extension to Vaughan as that only opened about 5 yrs ago and up was talking about a 20 yr time frame.
