Most cities now are updating their public transport system, in my city I saw a new fancy bus, but I could¨nt tell which was the rear or the front, and when stationary , in which direction it was heading. Is the bus heading in the direction A or B ?
Confusingly there are two answers , one for the U.K. and one for the rest of the world , state which in the answer.

I have to agree with Storm - "one for the UK and one for the rest of the world"??? Lost in space's link is useful - the UK is not the only place that drives on the left hand side.

Quite ironic given the Bush quote...

ok. if you drive , when sober, in the U.K, you drive on the left hand side of the road . THe bus you are looking at as has bee? pointed out, has no doors, and is on the opposite side of the road therefore the doors are on the other side of the bus as in any country (except Sweden in the 1970´s I think-why?) and in the U.k. the bus would therefore be travelling in the "B" direction. However if you were driving in the bush......
"Oi say mate" says the man from the Emerald Isles, "Oi´ve just arrived on these shores , and oi´m a little confused, cud ya tell me please , `Which is t´other side of t`road´? .
"Well certainly sir" I replied, " It is in fact over there " pointing across the road.
"What !" he retorts, "Where that man is waiting for t´bus ?"
"Yes ", I affirmed.
"Well t´bastard !...He told me it was this side!"

I get the thing about where the doors are, but I'm really suprised that people can't see the point about the UK versus the "rest of the world".

Let's try putting it this way... what would the answer be if you were in Australia? Or New Zealand? South Africa? India? Japan? Should I go on?
