You still have to go around though. It's not a direct exit to the arrival gate, as if you were waiting on the shoulder right before you get to the gates. I know it's not a complete loop, as if you were exiting the airport and getting back on, but it's still more than just going straight.

They park on the shoulder bc it's direct access to picking up the person once they are out. If you go to the cell phone lot, easy to get to, but you have to loop around to arrive at the arrival gate. Been going to the Philly airport for over 25 years now, it's not nearly as bad as it used to be when the cellphone lot didn't exist.
