    Hello, Ramtin

    In your first question you can use both of them.

    For Example,
    1) Please move this chair. it is in the way
    2) On they way to the station, I bought some Cigarettes.

    In the second question you can use "He is in the bus" but the other one I don't know whether it can be used or not ?????

    For Example,
    1) He is in the bus
    2) He is on the bus ???

    Not a teacher.

    He is "on the way" means that he is in the process of coming to your location. "Is Dave coming to our picnic?" "Yes, I just called him and he is on the way."

    "In the way" means that someone is obstructing whatever it is you are trying to do. I was mopping the floor, but your chair was in the way. I wanted to do this test today, but the customer's engineers were in the way.

    For your second question, it is simpler. People are "on" the bus.
