The contrast with the light outside is stark and hard to manage, so you get savagely blown-out backgrounds. But the way the light falls on people's faces is delicate: rim light from the sun streaming under the bridge and reflected soft light from the white paint of the zebra-crossing.
Plus, people waiting to cross the road are typically still and either concentrating on the traffic signals. Or, busy doing something to pass the time until the signal changes. Either way they are something of a captive subject, giving you time to compose.
