Thanks in advance!
Yeah, it increases; I don't know the exact percentage, though. An NPC says that using a Bicycle or Running Shoes in tall grass will alert Pokemon due to the loud sound they make. Not sure about this functionality in caves, though. Since you're also making more ground in the same time, you're effectively getting a double bonus to wild battles as well.

"I want to tear myself from this place, from this reality, rise up like a cloud and float away, melt into this humid summer night and dissolve somewhere far, over the hills. But I am here, my legs blocks of concrete, my lungs empty of air, my throat burning. There will be no floating away."
