if the first bus has to stop for nearly every passenger then the following bus will be slowed down too. It may be a good policy to choose to board the second bus. then the first will not be delayed so much and you will actually get [to the city ] sooner.**on the second bus.** > sometimes, when 2 buses come together, the first bus will continue on without waiting. This should speed up the flow. > do you have to lose to win. Does Stagecoach Wn know about this. [the bus operator.].
