I have one firmly held conviction about catching the streetcar: if you feel compelled to walk instead of simply picking a streetcar stop and sticking with it, always walk in the opposite direction you want to go. That is, you want to go right? Go left. Walk at your streetcar. All those people you’ll pass at streetcar stops, you’re cutting in line in front of them. You’re going to get a damn seat. They may even have to wait for another streetcar. Plus, if you walk in the direction of your destination, that only means you’ll be paying for the streetcar to take you a shorter distance, and you won’t save any time in the process.
