A Conversation for Buses in the UK

Getting off the bus

I live in Essex and to get off the bus, you simply ring the bell, remain seated and the bus will stop at the stop, you stand up and walk off the bus.
I used to live in Birmingham and there you just stood by the exit door before reaching your stop. If you rang the bell and remained seated the driver would simply drive past your stop.
In the larger cities the law of the jungle seems to apply when travelling by bus, ignore other people just get on and off the bus as quickly as you can. One word of warning never tell a smoker to put their cigarette out, you may get more than an earbashing and end up in an hospital ward.
