I think Finch West, York U, and Pioneer Village will see middle of the road ridership, VMC with some lowish end ridership, and Downsview Park / 407 sitting shockingly empty.

407 and DP will make Bessarion and Ellesmere look busy. 407 station has no reason to exist. Even with a future 407 Transitway, it could have easily connected to Pioneer Village as it’s easy to exit 407 and go to PV station and then back onto 407 via a dedicated ROW. DP was built in the wrong location. It should have been built actually closer to the park, where all the indoor facilities are. Right now the only thing it’s close to is the Saturday farmers market.

Don't worry. One day, they'll deck over the 407 for condos and parkland ;)

I heard there is a roughed in platform at finch west is that true?
Yes that is true. There is a wall panel that can be opened up to connect FWLRT to the subway station.
