These are some of the funniest things people have seen on a bus
When it comes to British public transport it’s a well-known fact that your ticket doesn’t just get you from A to B, but also ensures you some wonderful entertainment on the way.
We’ve teamed up with Arriva to give you an insight into some of the funniest things people have done, and continue to do on buses. With Arriva’s amazing Student Saver tickets, you might just see some of these brilliant things yourself at a great price.
Whilst you occasionally get the pleasure of seeing a pretty cute dog or a cat in a cage on its way to the vet on a bus, it’s not everyday you see rabbits running loose, or even this guy trying to take his DONKEY on a bus in Dublin… why pay to go to the zoo when you can see such wonderful wildlife on the bus?! At Arriva, dogs and mythical beasts are allowed on board at the driver's discretion.
Everyone fantasises about their dinner on the journey home, so it's always pretty torturous when someone gets on with your dream meal... So of course it's only natural to start making eye contact with your fellow passengers in a hunger-fuelled solidarity to steal a man's pizza:
There's a guy on this bus with a warm pizza. We're starting to form alliances to figure out how to steal it from him.— Mel (@Miss_Close) December 7, 2016
Or what about when someone's so kindly left their dinner on the bus all ready for you to eat, like the time this guys found a lovely meat selection:
So I get on a bus & someone has abandoned 3.5lb of beef mince on the seats.— Chris McCrudden (@cmccrudden) August 29, 2017
Oh London, every time I think I understand you spin the wheel. pic.twitter.com/RU3m4zXC3S
The Adorably Enthusiastic
Ah yes, the modern love story. Boy makes eye contact with girl across a crowded bus, girl smiles. They fall deeply and hopelessly in love... or the boy just loudly and enthusiastically tells his friend that miracles are indeed real and a girl has sat next to him at all:
i'm on the bus and i have to sit next to this freshman and he calls his friend or whatever and says "YOULL NEVER BELIVE IT A GIRL SAT W ME"— miss atomic bomb (@cindyxvx) August 29, 2017
Accidentally Playing Music Out Loud
Playing anything out loud on public transport in the UK is a big no-no...You're instantly met with a sea of angry glares when you forget to plug in your headphones... so we can all feel a collective empathy for this man, when he accidentally played a girl impersonating Big Ben out loud:
i thought my headphones were plugged in but they weren't so the whole bus just heard me listen to a girl impersonating big ben's bongs— Ivy/Louise (@JEALOUSlES) August 22, 2017
This Beautiful View
Getting the bus at night is the perfect opportunity to stare out of the window, put your headphones in and stare at the moon pretending to be in a movie... or you know, stare at a piece of chorizo on the bus that you *think* is the moon:
I looked ahead in my bus and thought I saw a blood moon in the sky.— Goosefat Andrew (@Truly_Defective) February 27, 2017
Nope, just a piece of chorizo that someone threw at the window. pic.twitter.com/0ISA6UnUhF
A Mysterious, Friendly Stranger
Nothing livens up a long journey like a mysterious commuter trying to send you absolutely hilarious and downright bizarre photos:
