  What a bus or taxi might look like
by rachclem

THEY LOOK THE SAME! The only difference will be the bus (really a van) has a little sign on it reading bus and its licence plate will say bus. However, if you're not savvy, you don't necessarily look for these things, or are looking for a proper city bus-ish vehicle. One might come round 10 times and you've missed it, only to become frustrated and take a taxi for 5 times the price.

Also, you just tell the driver where you want to get off and he'll stop in the middle of the road for you.
