    difference between "get a bus " and "take a bus"

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a little confused. Can anyone tell me if there are any differences between "get a bus" and tak a bus"?
    Thank you very much.

    There is no difference in meaning.

    Jenny, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button, please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.

    Re: difference between "get a bus " and "take a bus"

    There's no difference in meaning, just in usage. In the UK, we "get a bus" or "go/come on the bus". In AmE, they "take a/the bus".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is it natural to say "take a/the school bus"?

    Thanks.

    And in BrE, "to get the school bus". Note that school buses are much less common in the UK than in the USA.
