It does not make the bus arrive any quicker when you step into the street to look for said bus. It only makes the drivers of cars passing by nervous because they don’t want to HIT you.
The only things that work to get the bus sooner are:
- More than three people waiting.
- Calling Customer Service to complain.
- Giving up and walking. This makes the bus pass you before you can make it to the next stop.
- Lighting a cigarette. (For those who smoke.)
