    What time is the bus?

    Some questions like 'What time is the meeting?' or 'What time is the class?' are very natural to me. I don't know if I can say, 'What time is the train?' or 'What time is the bus?.'
    Totally when can not I use this style?
    Thanks a million,
    Ata

    You can say "What time is the bus?" if it's generally understood which bus is meant and the hearer understands the context.
    For example, if your friend says that he's leaving by bus in the morning, then asking "What time is the bus?" is normal. Of course, you can't just ask, "What time is the class", etc. without a context either.
