Answer: A bus stand is a place where buses stop for a while to facilitate the passengers to get in or get down. A good number, of people wait there for the arrival of the buses. There are two kinds of bus stands. One is a local bus stand and the other is a long-distance bus stand from where the inter-district buses leave. In most of the local bus stands, there are sheds to protect the waiting passengers from rain or heat. In the bigger bus stands there are ticket counters, waiting rooms, and washing rooms. These bus stands are usually very busy. As the buses leaving from here, travel a long distance, many people wait there. Tea, cigarette, newspapers, or magazines are available at the stalls of both bus stands. Thus the passengers are able to occupy their time by taking tea or reading magazines. As soon as the bus arrives the whole atmosphere becomes noisy and busy. When it stops at the stand, the waiting people just rush towards the door to get inside and occupy a comfortable seat. The inner passengers try to step down from the bus. So there is always a jostling and shoving among the ingoing and outgoing passengers. Taking advantage of this, pickpocketers sometimes pick the pockets of the passengers. Hawkers shout in a peculiar way to draw the attention of the passengers and sell their goods. The shouts of coolies can be heard. Conductors shout to the passengers to get into the bus. As a whole the place becomes noisy severely. But a bus stand is really an important place for the management of transportation.
