Trains, planes, automobiles, ships and bikes. But I’ve never seen many about the above. I suppose the spluttering Megabus or N73 to Islington lacks other transport forms’ sense of innate romance.
Don’t you dare suggest the book adaptations of Speed, Coach Trip, or National Express by the Divine Comedy.
There’s a lot of bus journeys in On The Road. Not sure you’d really say it’s about them, though
Bill Bryson’s Neither Here Nor There features several coach trips and bus rides.
Bought this from the Oxfam book shop near me as I love a travelogue and it looked a bit Bill Brysonish
Had to give up after a few chapters as it was a bit too “bus-y” for me. The author’s more into the public transport than the places he visits
The Bus that never speeds up
yeah, it’s actually about absolutely nothing
Cheers - that’s actually good enough for me as if he visits the Forest of Bowland, his bus will probably go straight past my house.

That’s fine, I’m impressed Jarvis Cocker managed to write the introduction in summer 1964 at the age of 8-11 months.
