    Which is correct, “I am in the bus” or “I am on the bus”?:

    It appears that none of the answers so far are from native speakers of English, or at least not the American dialect.

    Both “in” and “on” could be correct in this sentence, but they carry different connotations. “I am on the bus” would be the much more common usage.

    “I am in the bus” might be used to describe your location, inside a bus rather than outside of it. You might use this in a message to a friend you were meeting at the bus station, to help them find you.

    “I am on the bus” would be used to describe the process of riding a bus as a method of transportation from one place to another. You might use this in a message to give someone an update of your status on the journey, for example, “I am on the bus home from the train station; I'll be there in fifteen minutes.”

    “I am on the bus” on its own would not be interpreted by anyone to indicate that you were physically on top of, on the roof of, a bus.
