In order to interpret the dream with a bus ride in it, the dreamer should make associations in regard to buses.
The dream has very specific meaning depending on the individual’s experiences on school buses, public transportation vehicles, special family trips, etc. At times the content of the dream may be more important than the actual setting.
If the setting is secondary, then examine the other details of the dream more closely. However, if the bus and/or the bus ride was a focal point of the dream consider the value that it holds for you. Does this dream say something about your ability to fit in and join a group effort, project, or trip? Do you function well in group settings? Are you a leader or a follower in such situations, and what is your comfort level?

It could be your family, friends, schoolmates or co-workers. See also: Car... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

A bus signifies that part of our life journey that we are able to undertake in the company of others. More public than private, we perhaps have a common aim with the people with whom we travel.

Dreaming of getting on the wrong bus, or it going the wrong way, shows that there are conflicting aims or desires that need to be considered and we should listen to our own intuition. This is usually a warning of a wrong action, and we do not need to get carried away.

Although the world of business and the world of dreams are often considered to be incompatible, this is not so. Once one realises that dreams may be the ‘printout’ of the most shrewd and capable computer we have access to, we can see them as a source of useful information.
If one is in business, there is information in one’s own memory, along with considered projects, questions about problem areas, which have never been put on an electronic computer. And there is no computer program outside our own mind which can handle and manipulate all the variables, the integrating of different information sources—written words, feeling hunches, spoken information, personal observation and experience—and then sift, explore different combinations, and reach into pure creativity by leaping into the new.
Dreams should not be seen as oracles, but if we take their information into account along with our other sources, we find them a real addition to our business equipment. See creativity and problem solving in dreams. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

If you woke up from your dream sweating with fear and had the feeling that some force was crushing your chest, causing you to struggle to breathe, this may represent two different things, depending on your sex.
If you are a woman, you may have suffered an incubus attack; if you are a man, you may have suffered a succubus attack. In the past, when sexual pleasure was considered sinful, women who had erotic dreams were said to have been visited by the incubus, or male demon, whilst a sexually voracious succubus, or female demon, was said to visit a sleeping man. These evil spirits were thought to pin down and paralyze their sleeping victims in order to have sex with them. The words ’incubus’ and ’succubus’ are still used today to describe the sensation of having a weight press down on your chest, accompanied by a feeling of dread and being unable to move while you are sleeping. They are no longer applied to dreams about sex, which are of course natural and normal.
Incubi (plural of ’incubus’, meaning ’one who lies upon’ in Latin) were thought to be particularly fond of seducing nuns and other women committed to the celibate life. Sexual repression is thought to be the most likely explanation but the cause of this phenomenon remains unclear. Dream experts have ruled out demons and malevolent spirits as the cause, suggesting instead that they may have been caused by temporary breathing difficulties combined with sleep paralysis, a condition that occurs in the state just before dropping off to sleep or just before fully awakening from sleep. The condition is characterized by being unable to move or speak. It is often associated with a feeling that there is some sort of menacing presence, a feeling which often arouses fear but is accompanied by an inability to cry out. The paralysis, which experts are unable to explain fully, typically lasts a few seconds but leaves a lasting impression on the dreamer.... The Element Encyclopedia
