I was tired and taking a nap on the bus, I missed the stop where I wanted to get off.
I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say. I know my sentence isn't natural. Can you help me with what I'm trying to say.

I dozed off on the bus and missed my stop.
I consider the continuous tense better because the speaker was napping while s/he missed it, but I am not a teacher.
Whilst not the best option, the original sentence can be made good by the addition of a comma:
'I was tired, and taking a nap on the bus, I missed the stop where I wanted to get off.'

I would put the comma after "and" and before "taking" in that sentence.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
