Job City before Transit City

The Graph speaks for itself. Traditionally transit ridership is correlated with employment, not population density. The graph shows this tight relationship. This trend diverged somewhat starting in 2003. This coincides with escalating oil prices and is a trend seen throughout NA. Transit expansion in Toronto, to be utilized, is going to require employment expansion. Without it, it is a waste of money.
