Yes you are right. There's more to it than just that.

People getting on or off the GO have a bike available without carrying one on the train or bus. Secure bike parking at GO has/will increase to $90/y. One year of SoBi is a little cheaper than one year of secure bike parking.

Maintenance. Someone may find it easier and cheaper to use SoBi than maintain their own bike. Especially with what winter can do to a bike.

I've come back for bikes I locked up after a one-way ride, where the return trip fell under some other arrangement. SoBi would have been a nice option in those cases instead of leaving my bike somewhere.

I own three bikes and I can recall and imagine situations where using SoBi would be easier.
