Plus, unless we're talking Greyhound where the bus pulls off into a station
(even if makeshift) most of the time, or Eugene's EmX (BRT system with
doors on both sides, essentially light rail minus the rail; busses have
signs on the back indicating that they need approximately an entire time
zone to turn right and many downtown Eugene intersections have been
modified to allow for their gigantic turning radius), the terminus of the
line, or a major bus station, the odds that both directions are going to
use exactly the same stop is pretty close to zero.
