Girls and guys are like a bus stop - they come and go. You never know, like, who's going to be the right one, and what I've been taught is you really gotta figure out who you are first before you can really give yourself to someone else.

WHAT DOES BUS STOP MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bus stop

Bus stop

A bus stop is a designated place where buses stop for passengers to board or alight from a bus. These are normally positioned on the highway and are distinct from off-highway facilities such as bus stations. The construction of bus stops tends to reflect the level of usage. Stops at busy locations may have shelters, seating and possibly electronic passenger information systems; less busy stops may use a simple pole and flag to mark the location and 'customary stops' have no specific infrastructure being known by their description. Bus stops may be clustered together into transport hubs allowing interchange between routes from nearby stops and with other public transport modes. For operational purposes there are three main kinds of stops: Scheduled stops, at which the bus should stop irrespective of demand; request stops where the vehicle will only stop on request and hail and ride stops where a vehicle will stop anywhere along the designated section of road on request. Certain stops may be restricted to 'set-down only' or 'pick-up only'.
