The bus of Bikini Bottom is a public transportation vehicle that appears in various SpongeBob SquarePants episodes, starting with "Help Wanted."

Design and boarding

Bikini Bottom buses are red in the series, while the LEGO set version is orange. They also have porthole windows and periscopes on the top, giving them the appearance of a submarine with wheels. The bus stops locally at a bus stop in the streets in Bikini Bottom. It also resembles the look of a shrimp. The rear end of the bus represent's a fish's tail.

Typically, most of its passengers are regular citizens, though animals are also allowed to board the bus, as shown in "Dumped," "Have You Seen This Snail?," and "Pet or Pests." Most buses, possibly all or just one, seem to have a "no singing" policy as seen in "A Flea in Her Dome."
