16 Types Of People You Meet On A Bus Journey

Travelling by bus allows you to meet numerous kinds of people. If you are a frequent bus traveller, you would realise there are certain type of people that you come across quite often on a bus journey.

1. The bulky traveller.

Travelling with loads of luggage, a bulky traveller’s ‘boris’ and ‘jholas’ conquer the most of the space provided for luggage. You can find them struggling with their bags and unknowingly disturbing other passengers.


2. The busy personality.

Love talking loudly on their phones in public, these busy personalities can be easily spotted glued to their phones. From ‘Haa sirji kaam ho jaega’ to ‘Kaise hai mamaji’, they will discuss everything loudly on their phones while other passengers wish for their phone’s battery to run out.

4. The attractive character.
