Simply put because cycling doesn't work for everyone all the time.

I love cycling, but it works best when you're by yourself and don't have much to carry.

Have a young family? Probably aren't all going out on bicycles. Especially if they're so young they can't even ride bikes.
Cargo bikes can carry kids, kids can sit on the back of normal upright bikes too

Have elderly parents or dependents with health or physical limitations, probably aren't shuttling them around on bikes.
Incredibly specific, seniors can ride bikes too. Better than letting them drive cars.
Have groceries or large items? Not possible to carry on bikes and not everyone wants to shop online and have everything delivered.

Miserable weather out, rain or snowing like it is half the year here in Toronto, no fun to be riding.

.... what is needed is for mods to step in and move all the Ontario Line West posts to the appropriate thread so that this thread can be kept strictly to what is actually in progress.
We're on post #20,000 and some odd. And seven years of construction. We should hit 60,000 in this discussion by the opening....

Partially on topic, but should this thread title be updated to "Under Construction" from "In Design"?

We've officially broken ground and started construction on this project.
I know we had a ceremony but has construction actually started? None of the major contracts have even been awarded.

There's been demolition at Exhibition & Cork Town as part of the 'early works'. I would consider that 'under construction'.
