Bus into the city

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Cities have historically been places where there is more financial opportunity than rural areas. People migrate to cities to be where the action is.

Cities, therefore, signify your financial interests and your ambitions for your future. A bus is a form of public transportation in which many people are driven to their destination collectively. Dreams in which you are taking a bus to the city, therefore, signify that you lack autonomy in your finances. Because both cities and buses are places where large numbers of people who have no real connection congregate, then dreams of riding a bus into the city signify that you need to develop closer connections with other people.

In this dream you may have...

  • Gotten on the wrong bus.
  • Sat next to someone who is dangerous or annoying.

Detailed dream meaning

A dream in which you are a passenger on a bus to the city signifies that you feel as though you're not in the driver's seat when it comes to your career and finances. You may been trapped in an unrewarding job or feel as though your contributions at work are unappreciated, as though you are just one of the crowd. Most people ride the bus due to necessity rather than enjoyment, so you may feel as though your choices are limited by your financial circumstances and you simply have to suffer through your current condition to get to better financial opportunities. The destination of the bus within the city (church, school, work) may indicate an area of your life in which you need to have greater independence and express greater individuality in your relationships with people in that area.

Dreams in which you have gotten on the wrong bus or are waiting for a bus that never arrives are indications that your life is stalled or you have made a choice which is taking you in the wrong direction. You may have succumbed to peer pressure or influence from outside sources which have caused you to feel alienated and alone. Contrarily, it may mean that there is an unpleasant financial reality that you need to deal with, and you are delaying the inevitable. Dreaming of missing the bus to the city means that you had an opportunity to get your life moving, but a lack of action on your part has left you having to improvise other options.

Dreaming of sitting next to someone who is dangerous or annoying suggests that your passivity at work may have dangerous consequences for you. You may need to find a way to change positions or find new financial prospects. Dreaming of being a passenger on a dirty bus implies that you feel as though what you are doing for a living is demeaning or degrading and you have no control over your destiny. Likewise, a dream in which you have sex on a bus may indicate that you are violating your most intimate sense of yourself on your way to financial prosperity. Alternatively, it can mean that you use your sexuality to stand out from the crowd and in your pursuit of financial gain. You revel in attracting attention to yourself, but may be unconventional or inappropriate in how you choose to go about this.

Dreaming that you are invisible on a bus can have two meanings. On the one hand, it can mean that you feel as though you are quite literally invisible, lacking control over your choices and being overlooked by your friends, family and associates. On the other hand, the dream may indicate that maintaining a low profile and fading into the crowd is the most beneficial course of action. How you feel in the dream about being invisible will determine the implications of the dream. Being naked on a bus to the city signifies that you feel vulnerable, exposed and isolated in your social environment and lack sense of community in your workplace.

If you dream that you are driving the bus into the city, then it signifies that you feel in control of achieving your dreams even though the pathway to financial independence may involve many other people. To dream of riding on a charter bus to the city means that you have chosen to associate with people who are temporarily useful in helping you to get where you want to go. Dreaming of riding on a luxury bus signifies that you have connections which will make achieving your goals a more comfortable experience.

Dreaming of singing or dancing on the bus suggests that you are ready to break out of your passive role in your life, make some noise and attract some attention.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Dead end job.
  • Having bills due.
  • Wanting to change your major.
  • Overlooked for a promotion.
