It all comes down to where the doors are positioned. Since we cannot see the doors on the bus, we can assume they are on the other side.

As a result, for people in the UK and other countries where they drive on the left side of the road, the bus is actually going right. And for those in the US and other regions where they drive on the right side, the bus will be going towards the left.

So, let's say you're in the US, the fact that you cannot see the doors while looking at the bus means that it's across the road and traveling to the left. Get it?
