This may be true, but it also robs the street of 'street life' and 'vitality' as you remove people from it. It's terrible in creating active street frontages, and true urban/inactive centres. It's one reason Vancouver has actively prevented their construction (and underground connections) for the past 20 years. They see the importance of an active street level, not removing people from it.
Sure the weather plays a big factor in Cal, Edm, etc., and any developer would be considered an idiot if they didn't connect to the network now, but that's the catch-22 of making it worse.
