Can you tell me where I can catch the number 8 bus, please?
Hurry up or we'll miss it.
We should buy return tickets because they are much cheaper than getting two singles.
A: So, how should we get to the theater?
B: Let's take the bus.
A: I hate the bus system in London. The bus drivers are rude, the buses are never on time, and there are few people around who can help you.
B: It's not that bad. You probably just had a bad experience once.
A: It wasn't just once. Every single time I take the bus, something bad happens to me or to someone else on the bus.
B: We could take the subway. But we have to go three stops along the line, and then change trains twice.
A: Train fares are twice as expensive as the bus fares, too.
B: If we don't hurry up, we'll miss the show. Shall we take the bus?
A: We are already late, so I think we had better take a taxi.
B: I don't think we'll be able to find a taxi very easily during the rush hour. Let's just take the bus.
A: Fine. Have a look at the timetable to find out when the next one arrives.
B: It looks like it should be here in just a few minutes. Don't worry, nothing bad will happen. I'll even buy your ticket for you.
A: Thanks. That was nice of you.
