The idea is that the Akari that Takaki saw at the end was either a hallucination or a stranger he just mistook for her at a fleeting glance. Thus, her not bothering to wait for the train to pass. If it's a hallucination, then his letting it disappear also ties in to his letting go.

Added DiffLines:

Supporting this are the lyrics of "One More Time, One More Chance", playing over this scene, which strongly imply that the her he sees is but a fantasy in his head:
-> I am always searching somewhere for you
-> The opposite station platform, the back alley window
-> Even though I know you won't be here
-> ...
-> I always end up looking somewhere for your smile
-> At the railway crossing of the express train
-> Even though I know you won't be here


In all frankness, even if they were no longer romantically involved, the idea that one wouldn't wait to greet a long-lost old friend... Well, the theory that the woman was not actually her is slightly more palatable than their relationship having fallen so far apart that she won't even wait to exchange greetings as friends.

...And probably had it throughout the entire movie. Depression is why Takaki spends most of the movie alone, either staring off into the distance, writing texts and not sending them, or walking around by himself. Even when he is around Kanae, someone he considers a good friend, he is shown as being emotionally alone. Kanae misinterprets this loneliness as Takaki wanting "something beyond what she can offer," when in reality Takaki is trapped in a lonely emotional prison, and looking for nothing more than a way out.

...And probably had it throughout the entire movie. Depression He moves often as a child and appears to have few friends in Elementary School, so it's likely his depression starts from that. Akari was the first person he feels truly close to. Once she is gone, Takaki's depression gets worse due to the resulting loneliness. This is why Takaki spends most of he always sits on the movie alone, either staring hill and stares off into the distance, writing and why he writes texts and not sending them, or walking around by himself. Even when he but never sends them. Takaki is around Kanae, someone he considers trapped in a good friend, he lonely emotional prison; his brain chemistry is shown as being emotionally alone. probably so off that he's too inwardly-focused to see the genuine feelings that Kanae has for him. Kanae misinterprets this loneliness as Takaki wanting "something "wanting something beyond what she can offer," when in reality Takaki he is trapped in a lonely emotional prison, and looking for nothing more than a way out. out of his own head.

By the third part of the movie, Takaki quits his job and leaves his girlfriend of 3 years. He likely expected his job and relationship to make him happy, but his depression kept him from really enjoying either; he's still stuck in his own head just like in high school. So, he walks around aimlessly instead. Only after he sees Akari does he start to have a slight bit of hope.
