Yes, if it wasn't connected to a remote detonator...as this rig was reportedly having.
If he had the remote detonator, probably a mobile phone trigger - why hurry and draw attention to yourself? If you're gonna make a call to set the thing off, you wouldn't be legging it down the street to get away from it.
Whether Shahzad had ties to a foreign terrorist group or not, officials following the case earlier observed that the failed bombing seemed poorly plotted. Evan Kohlmann, a terrorism expert at Flashpoint Partners, was most struck by the amateurishness of what he calls "this so-called bomb." The alarm clocks designed to trigger the blast were 1960s-era technology. "Every terror group, every homegrown extremist cell, knows how to use remote detonators," he says. "It doesn't take a Ph.D. in electrical engineering." Beyond that, Kohlmann adds, its overall design — clocks setting off fireworks to ignite gas and gasoline — "doesn't exist outside of Tom and Jerry cartoons."

True. Did you see the video of the bald man and the picture of the suspect with the full head of hair? I'm hoping I presented it in a manner that reflects that as the main focus.
