Missed Bus Dream Meaning

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

When you dream of missing a bus it can be missing the bus for a short journey around a city, going somewhere important, or missing one for a journey. 

Missing your bus can show worry over an area in your life, specifically with work or travel. Because buses are usually simple and local transportation's they are most often reflective of your day-to-day life. The frustration of missing a bus, boat or plane can lead to many more. Did you ever miss a bus because you forgot to pack your clothes or couldn't get on the bus in time? Maybe you were so busy in traffic that you forgot to pack your bags and missed the flight. Sometimes people get distracted on the way to their cars and miss the bus.

What does missing a bus mean in a dream?

Missing a bus can indicate that you actually need to slow down in your waking world. If the bus was a daily bus, such as a bus that you normally take to and from work, and you know the time that the bus should be there but something prevents you from missing it, often in a dream this is a good omen. Life is full of busy schedules and things that need to be done on time. Missing a bus can show that you are paying so much attention to details that you are missing out on other aspects of your life.

The bus in your dream is also important. It is a reflection of how you see your life or your purpose. Much like car dreams, buses sometimes will represent being poor or not being able to afford another form of transportation. For short trips, it may seem like you are not able to provide for yourself and you may feel depressed at having to take the bus.

If you feel like this in your waking world and also share these feelings in your dream, not only should you consider why you are where you are, you also need to consider what the bus represents for you. Buses are available for a reason and many people have to take them… or else why would they be needed? Sometimes a bus is more of a way of life than anything else. For example, in a city, sometimes a car isn’t needed and there isn’t room for them. Was your bus in a city or in a rural area? Taking a bus because you have to is not a bad thing and missing the bus indicates that you are going against your needs. It’s okay to fulfill your needs in common ways.

Trying to chase a bus but not being able to make it stop is a negative omen. Vice versa, hailing a bus and catching it – thus, nearly missing your bus is a positive omen. These both equate to how you are coping with challenges in your life and whether or not you are doing well in the areas that you need to be in your life right now. Often, this image in a dream will indicate a deeper spirituality and how you feel about your waking world – your level of satisfaction and contentment.

Being lost has its own meaning in dreams and you should also look at that meaning if you find yourself missing your bus and being trapped or lost in an area that you are unfamiliar with. These kinds of dreams can indicate a typically lost feeling, such as being left behind. They can also indicate a pessimistic outlook in your waking world.

What does it mean to have recurring dreams of missing a bus?

Old-fashioned dream dictionaries don't satisfy our curiosity about repeated dreams because they can't take into consideration the particular concerns and circumstances of our private lives. But deep down, we know that dreams have to mean something.

When we see the same dream multiple times, we realize that our subconscious is trying to tell our unconscious something. Recurrent dreams are often a sign of recurring situations and can indicate that you are in a rut in your personal or professional life. We all have many hopes and fears as humans living on the same planet. Missing a bus can mean you are missing something in life, maybe a connection with someone or something. Think about how this makes you feel.

What does it mean to dream of missing the school bus?

If you missed a bus to go to work or school this can indicate that you are missing passion in what you do in life. 
It's helpful to be aware of the fact that there are many variables in life. The decisions you make in your career today can have an impact on your career tomorrow. After this dream of missing the bus, you might be more conscious of the facts before making any commitments. My advice, after having a dream about work missed bus is to find out what, when, where, why, and how to tackle work tasks before you start. Is your work-life something that you enjoy? Is it your passion?
