without the other lane of traffic obscuring their view
or left as you face the front?
to the rest of the bus when there are still others available?
Get down immediately - you're not King of the Bus
but I have a grudging respect for their shamelessness.
Crammed underneath the stairs and behind the driver's cab. It has no window. Surely a space that should've been left for luggage. What kind of lunatic is going to sit in there?
Gonna sit on the right now.
if I sat on the right of the bus and someone sat next me then if I wanted to switch songs or change the volume I might end up touching them on the leg
soemtimes i'm on the left, sometimes the right. keeps things fresh
don't like mixing with the downstairs scum. i make sure to give them a pitying stare when i get off
to think sitting downstairs on the bus was alright
On the bus I used to catch to school (and most buses in the Manchester area, really), downstairs was for adults and upstairs was for kids messing about and general weirdos. In London it's pretty much exactly the other way around. YCMIU.
wherever's furthest away from all the other people?
Left as you are looking toward the rear of the bus. But on the top deck I go for the right. And it is usually as far away from other people as possible, of course.
where someone says something that sounds plausible, and everyone chips in opinions and explanations, without questioning whether the original thing is actually true?
Just wanted to check.
is it like a big taxi?
However, there is normally a ridge running along the floor on that side which can be uncomfortable on more cramped/badly designed buses. Most of the London ones I get these days seem to be relatively roomy though.
it caused a few minor rows. dunno why.
Passengers sit on the left.
double deckers upstairs, drivers side. more room between seats.
So i can read the electronic 'next bus' signs at the stops I pass.
and therefore know how far away you are from your destination.
I get a sore neck from too much left window gawking.
It's more effort plus upstairs is the kingdom of young troublemakers. It's the bus equivalent of sitting at the back of the class.
Upstairs has all the view, hence good.
What are we, British? :P
