Dream Bus – 96 Different Plots And Their Meanings

What Does Bus Mean In A Dream?

Generally, dreams associated with buses reflect your real-life circumstances, your behavior, and your attitude as you walk the journey of life. If you delve deep enough, you will realize that a lot of bus dreams hint at the areas of life you have messed up further providing clues on how to undo your actions and proceed. 

Bus in a dream has several meanings. While some experts relate it to roadblocks in the real world, others take it as a sign of progression or regression. 

Bus in a dream may also mean you need to reevaluate your life, your behaviors, and the principles you live by as it will help you see life and situations from a completely new perspective. 

Some dream books relate a bus dream to succeed in the professional sphere. Having said that, if you take the wrong bus in a dream, the scenario urges you to review your plans and strategies because something went seriously wrong. 

Another approach to a bus dream is the need to develop a stronger connection with the people around you.

The vehicle could be a sign that you need to assess your life from a different perspective and work harder if you want to be successful.

What you need to keep in mind is, not every dream that includes a bus will carry the same meaning.

Depending on the events in the dream, your real-life circumstances, and the overall emotions, your dream may stand for either positive or negative. 

Bus Dream Meaning: Dream Symbols

1. Abandonment

Some dreams associated with a bus may mean you are isolated and abandoned by your family and friends. 

2. Sharing

In Big Dictionary of Dreams, Martha Clarke says, “as a means of public transportation, the bus symbolizes the need to share projects, ideas, or thoughts. Dreaming of this vehicle shows that you should have to relate more often with loved ones, fleeing from negative isolation”.

3. Complications

According to the theories of Sigmund Freud, the appearance of a bus in your dream scenario symbolizes the complications in your personal life – such as lack of love, understanding, passion, and affection, which are in turn taking a toll on your life in general. 

Having this dream is a reminder to stay calm, determined, and optimistic. Because nothing in life lasts forever, not even hard times. 

4. Independence

According to Carl Jung’s Individuation theory, riding any type of public transformation may be your higher self encouraging you to be more independent and less dependent on others. 

5. Lack Of Economic Independence

A dream about a bus may also mean your present economic circumstances are too far off from what you desire. Ultimately, you may be compelled to rely financially on others against your wishes. 

6. A Feeling Of Satisfaction

Some bus dream plots imply you have finally reached the place you have always dreamed of after battling with all sorts of problems. 

7. Control

In the dream world, buses symbolize your life path and the amount of control you have over your life. 

For instance,  while a dream about driving a bus denotes you have complete control over your life and actions, seeing yourself as a passenger may mean you are simply following through and complying with someone else’s direction. 

8. Extreme Routine and Monotony

Usually, buses have fixed routes of their own. If all the buses drive on routes according to the whims of the drivers, roads would be in complete chaos.

From that perspective, a dream about a bus may mean your life is too structured.

For instance, you might be compelled to wake up, prepare breakfast, go to work, come back home, and so on at fixed times every single day. 

Having the dream might be your subconscious encouraging you to explore newer things to make your life a little more colorful and exciting.

9. Walking Down The Wrong Path

Some dream plots related to a bus may mean you have chosen a life path that is not suitable for you. 

Dream Bus – 96 Plots And Their Meanings

Dreams about buses are subject to both positive and negative interpretations. Taking note of the details and real-life situations is essential to accurately decipher the plot. 

Below are listed some of the most common bus dream scenarios. 

1. Dreaming of a bus

On the whole, a bus in a dream is a sign from your higher self that you need to put in more effort to achieve what you desire in life.

Chances are, you have had life easy – having everything you want without any trouble. Perhaps you have relied on others – parents, guardians, siblings, etc for your needs. However, it’s not going to be the same anymore. 

The scenario is a sign from the universe that you need to start doing your bit to achieve what you want. Your loved ones might have supported you all those times out of love. 

But the question is how long can you drag on like that?

2. Seeing a bus in a dream

If you see a bus in your dream without any other additional details, the plot may be a symbol of your extremely routined life. 

Perhaps you keep on repeating the same things over and over again – be it habits, the food you order at restaurants, clothes you buy, etc. 

The scenario wants you to ask yourself how you feel about those routines. Are you happy with how things are? Do you not long for changes? If you are content with your present life. That’s well and good!

On the flip side, if the monotony is literally killing you, the scenario advises you to start exploring newer activities, habits, jobs, etc. 

3. Seeing a crowded bus in a dream

If you dream about a crowded bus, it symbolizes extremely high competition in something you have chosen. It may have to do with either personal or professional life. 

Perhaps thousands of students are going to sit for the exam you have applied for. It may also mean the person you like is wooed by several others. 

A bus full of passengers is also symbolic of changes. And most likely those transformations will not only affect you but those around you as well. 

Negatively, a crowded bus in a dream is a warning from your subconscious not to be too hasty in letting new people in your life. Not everyone wishes you good!

4. Seeing a bus drive on its own without a driver 

Based on the plot, you are involved in a situation that is not in any way under your control. To make things worse, that situation is going haywire and there’s nothing you can do about it. 

Take the scenario as a warning to make your escape as soon as possible. If it gets too late, you might never be able to get out of it. 

5. Dreaming about a bus passing by you

To dream about a bus passing by you shows how you are going against the wishes and opinions of others. 

For instance, you might have continued seeing the person you like even though your whole family is against the relationship.

Another approach to the plot is that you feel left out in your waking life. 

6. Watching a bus leave in a dream

The scenario reflects your fear of not being able to do something important.

7. A dream about buying a bus ticket

Buying a bus ticket in a dream means you have the habit of doing things to please others.

While there is no harm in it, your subconscious advises you not to go overboard, especially if your heart or conscience is against it, do not push yourself. 

8. Dreaming about a bus stop

Bus stops in dreams are a bad sign. Most likely something in your real life is stuck – a business, a relationship, a project, etc. 

Possibly the scenario appeared in your sleep state reminding you to take immediate action. Because if it gets too late, you might not be able to do anything about it. 

9. Seeing yourself at a bus stand in your dream

Since bus stands are points of transition, seeing yourself at such a station means you are presently at a crossroads in your waking life. 

Also, you need to recall whether you were alone or with someone in your dream.

In case, someone happened to be with you, the dream may be hinting at transformations in the relationship between you and that person.

For instance, if you were on a bus stand with your best friend, the plot may foretell changes in your relationship. Perhaps you will leave your town and your best friend to start a business in 

another city. 

10. Waiting for a bus at the bus stop

Dreaming about waiting for a bus at a bus stop means you are expecting a meeting with someone. 

11. Waiting for a bus in a dream

There are various interpretations of this dream. The first one is a reflection of your patience – with yourself and with the world. 

You fully understand that there’s time for everything and according to the plot, you are patiently waiting for your turn to shine. 

Another possibility is that you have been waiting for the love of your life for a very long time and you are still hoping you will meet that person someday.

According to other dream experts, waiting for a bus means you are taking such a long time to make a decision. 

Alternatively, dreaming about waiting for a bus also denotes trying times in terms of finance, especially.

In that regard, you have to remind yourself that life is nothing but a wheel – sometimes good things happen, sometimes you face bad things. 

Therefore, instead of getting demotivated by your problems, you have to wait for those bad phases to pass by.

A different approach to the dream suggests you feel estranged or isolated in the real world.

Because of some poor decisions, you made earlier, your life has come to a standstill and now you are at the stage where you have completely surrendered to those circumstances. 

12. Dreaming about a bus heading your way

The plot is closely related to the impediments in your waking life. In all probability, the bus symbolizes problems that you are battling against. 

Though you have given your best, you still have a handful of troubles that steals your peace of mind and as indicated in the plot, more problems seem to be heading your way. 

At this point, you are bound to feel helpless – giving up might seem a lot easier than hanging on, which is why the scenario occurred!

You have come a very long way and if you give up now – whatever you have been through all this time would amount to nothing. 

13. Seeing yourself struggling to get on a bus in a dream

The scenario indicates you are struggling to keep up with the trends or what is happening in your surroundings. 

Perhaps, through the dream signal, your subconscious is asking you to figure out what it is that you want to pursue.  

14. Getting lost after boarding a bus in a dream

To begin with, the scenario hints at your wishes to make some transformations in your waking life. 

However, according to the events shown in the plot, you have not taken any step forward – probably because of the fear of failing or messing up. 

Through the plot, the universe wants you to take the much-desired step and let your life change for the better. 

15. Dreaming that you couldn’t find the door of a bus

If you dreamed that you could not find the door it means you will participate in various events in the foreseeable future. 

16. Dreaming about getting off a bus

To dream about getting off a bus symbolizes your desire to change something in your life. 

Negatively, having such a dream means you are frustrated as you could not live the life you have always dreamed of. 

17. Taking a bus and going somewhere in a dream

Generally, dreaming about taking a bus and traveling somewhere denotes you have made a wrong choice in some areas of life.

Consequently, the chances of you succeeding in that particular thing are dim – as your approach is wrong. 

For example, assume that your goal in life is to become a multimillionaire. There’s nothing wrong with aiming for the moon and the stars.

However, if you are planning to fulfill your dreams through gambling, you know very clearly that the success of your goal is not guaranteed. 

However, according to the Universal Dreambook, the scenario is a positive sign especially if you had a comfortable ride. 

18. Dreams about being on a bus

In a broad sense, seeing yourself inside a bus in a dream scenario is a reflection of your life and the type of person you are. 

Based on the plot, you often tend to go by the trend. In several walks of life, you take the easier path and choose the mainstream, instead of giving yourself time and opportunity to explore and figure out what works for you.

In a nutshell, you rather follow the mass than walk your path and stand out. 

It also symbolizes the feeling of satisfaction where things are finally falling into place after having been through a series of ups and downs. 

If your real-life circumstances resonate with the scenario, your dream encourages you to take pride in your achievements and look forward to more exciting opportunities.

However, do note that the above interpretation does not apply if you were the bus driver in your dream.   

Like the other means of transport, the bus also indicates growth and transition.

Just as a bus helps you go from one destination to another, it is an indication of movement, progression, and sometimes regression in the dream world.

For example, your journey from childhood to adulthood, marriage to divorce, etc.  

19. Being on a dirty bus in a dream

As per the plot, you are unhappy and are not proud of your present job and circumstances. 

The dirty bus could be a reflection of your frustrations over your failure to lead a life you can take pride in. 

20. Dreaming about being with someone on a bus

First, you need to recall the identity of the person who was with you in your dream.

If he or she is someone you are familiar with in the real world, the dream denotes he or she plays (or will play) a significant role in your life. 

Also, you need to know that he or she genuinely cares for you and would always be there for you even though the whole world turns its back on you. 

21. A dream about being alone in a bus

Being the lone passenger in a dream signifies you are preparing yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally to tackle a few problems without any help from others. 

Negatively, the dream is a projection of your fears of being abandoned by your loved ones. 

22. A dream of riding a bus

A bus is a means of transport just like a car. However, unlike cars, buses are public transport. In reality, you ride a bus with tens of people.

Therefore, riding a bus is about your sense of belongingness and how you relate to your people and surroundings. 

Alternatively, a dream about riding a bus is a sign that you wish to break free from your hectic life and travel. Chances are, you have been too focused at work. 

From another perspective, the scenario connotes that your partner is open to the idea of traveling with you.

23. Riding a crowded bus in a dream

There are two different interpretations of the dream scenario. 

Firstly, you may feel threatened at your workplace as your competitor has a high chance of getting ahead of you.

However, according to other interpreters, the scenario is a reflection of your loneliness in the waking world. 

25. Seeing yourself riding a school bus in a dream

Based on the plot, you are under the pressure of some authoritative figure in your life. Perhaps your teacher is constantly monitoring your progress in college forcing you to do better. 

Or perhaps your boss at work is pressuring you regarding work-related issues. 

26. A dream about riding a luxurious bus

According to the plot, you have quite an easy life. Even in terms of career and goals, you have the means to easily overthrow roadblocks that come up in your way. 

The reason could be your connections that can give me more advantages over others. 

27. Feeling uncomfortable riding a crowded bus in a dream

In a dream, if you feel uncomfortable while riding a crowded bus, it denotes your unhappiness or dissatisfaction with your social circle. 

Perhaps there are often disparities and conflicts between their ideas and yours.

28. Dreaming that you were happy riding in a crowded bus

Being inside and riding a congested bus is not everyone’s cup of tea. But it can stand for positivity in the dream world. 

The plot indicates either of the two – you feel comfortable in your relationships and associations or you long to be a valued individual of your social circle.

If you were filled with emptiness and sadness when you were snapped back to your consciousness, it is a clear indication that you wish to be in sync with your society.

The scenario possibly happened urging you to shift path and focus on something you are truly passionate about.

Likewise, you do not get involved in other people’s affairs that do not concern you. 

In short, you go your way while letting others go theirs’. Many people find this side of you admirable and often come to you for guidance.

35. Seeing yourself as a passenger in a bus

Dreaming about being a passenger in a bus shows your lack of control over your finances, career, and life in general.

The first one reflects your present real-life circumstances. Neglected by family, friends, and colleagues you may be feeling like you are literally invisible to your surroundings. 

In this case, your subconscious encourages you to look into the matter from all possible angles. Is it all in your mind, are you overthinking or are they really ignoring you?

In case you were late for the bus in a dream plot, it is a reflection of your indecisiveness in the real world.

Because you failed to make timely decisions, you often end up focusing on things that are not at all important. 

For example, fear of failing in your venture will make you procrastinate taking the first step.

Being late for the bus may also be symbolic of conflicts between you and your near ones. 

To dream of being late for the bus also symbolizes missed opportunities. If you encounter such a spectacle in your sleep state, you should redirect your attention to the present instead of dwelling on the things that happened in the past.

According to the plot, he or she will soon come after you for help. 

51. Running after a bus in a dream

To dream about running after a bus denotes your desire to make the most of your existence.

Your inability to keep up with the fast-paced world makes you feel restless.

52. Seeing a friend/ relative running behind to catch a bus

According to the plot, someone might come to you for help. 

53. Missing a bus in a dream

According to Theresa Cheung, missing a bus in a dream is associated with losing control or failing in something in the real world. 

“Dreams about missing a bus, train, or plane all point to some kind of tension in the dreamer about failing to achieve a goal”, stated Cheung.

From another viewpoint, the scenario is a reflection of your real-life frustrations and anxiety. 

Most likely, you have let a wonderful opportunity slip through your fingers.

Maybe you lost your only chance to surpass your competitors or perhaps you were careless and overlooked your chance to escape an unpleasant situation. 

Consequently, you might now be confused about how to proceed with your life and situations. 

The scenario may also symbolize confusing matters concerning you or your loved ones. 

54. Missing a crowded bus in a dream

A dream about missing a crowded bus reflects a life devoid of any exciting events. 

The people inside the bus in your dream may represent your family, friends, and acquaintances. Therefore, according to the plot, you may be feeling missed out and isolated. 

55. Missing an empty bus in a dream

Dreaming of missing an empty bus is your subconscious suggesting you reevaluate your life, goals as well as relationships with others.

56. Catching the wrong bus in a dream

Having a dream about catching the wrong bus indicates you are afraid of making the wrong decisions and messing up your life. 

In some cases, the scenario might emphasize the need to reevaluate your real-life circumstances. 

57. Dreaming about taking the wrong bus going in opposite direction

The most widely accepted interpretation of this scenario is that you are heading in the wrong direction. It may have to do with either your professional or personal lives or both.

In reality, if we board the wrong bus, we would naturally feel nervous, anxious, and helpless. Considering that, the plot may also be hinting at some situations that seem utterly hopeless. 

Taking the wrong bus in a dream is quite complicated. You need to delve deep into the events and conversations that led you to take the wrong bus. 

For example, let’s say you dreamed about planning to meet your fiance before you boarded the wrong bus.

Then, that might be a sign from the universe that some external forces are compelling you to drift away from your person against your wishes. 

On the other hand, the scenario may also symbolize an inner conflict. You are unable to decide about a matter because there’s a huge difference between what you wish and what others want for you. 

58. A dream about being stuck inside a wrong bus

Sometimes, you may dream about getting stuck inside the wrong bus. Perhaps the driver refused to stop the vehicle or maybe the person in charge of the bus didn’t let you get off. 

Here, you need to recall not just the events in your dreams but also the basic traffic and road rules. 

Recall your emotions too. Did their refusal annoy you?

Since it is considered dangerous and unlawful to halt public transport just anywhere on the road, the scenario may mean you often misunderstand the good intentions of those who look out for you. 

59. A dream about asking for bus direction

Based on the plot, you are unsure about how to proceed in an area of your life and the scenario indicates your desire to reach out to someone who has better knowledge than you in the particular area. 

60. A dream of driving a bus

A bus is a means of transportation just like a car or a motorbike but unlike others, a bus is primarily used to carry passengers from one place to another. 

From that viewpoint, driving a bus in a dream means you are responsible not only for your own life but for others as well. 

But there’s more to the meaning of your dream than just responsibilities. If the spectacle appears in your sleep state, the first and foremost thing you need to recall is what type of a driver were you in the dream? 

Were you confident as you took on the wheel? 

In that case, it means you are confident in your leadership skills. Probably you know what you are doing and how you are guiding your subordinates. 

This is especially true if you have taken up a lead role in some aspects of your life – team leader, CEO, head of the family, etc. 

On the flip side, if you were a reckless or an incompetent driver, the scenario indicates you feel overwhelmed by responsibilities in the waking world. 

According to other dream interpreters, driving a bus in a dream is a reflection of progress and development in the waking world, especially in your professional life. 

Furthermore, it indicates that you are in good control of your life and also feel empowered to accomplish your dream goals without relying on other people. 

It also signifies that you are a perfectionist and never stop working on something until and unless you are fully satisfied with the outcome. 

The scenario may also be a reminder from your subconscious not to escape from the responsibilities and commitments.

If you have not invested your efforts in anything particular, but have always wanted to, take the scenario as encouragement from your higher self because you can pull off anything if you set your mind to it.

Do not let your fears and limiting beliefs stop you from working on big goals?

67. Dreaming about a long bus ride

73. Bus accident dream meaning

Did you or any of your close ones get into a traffic accident recently? In that case, the dream probably carries no significant meaning. 

If not, the scenario denotes you would give up on some of your long-term goals. 

Also, you need to recall if there were deaths involved in the dream. In that case, death is the primary theme while the bus is the secondary. And you would need to approach the dream scenario from a different perspective. 

According to some dream books, a bus accident is a premonition of financial difficulties coming your way. Just to be on the safe side, stay away from shady investments and financial dealings. 

74. Getting involved in a bus accident in a dream

82. A dream about a bus full of people
