Hi

Are recording a video of a bus ride is a bad thing or illegal or when the bus is full of people is a bad thing or illegal?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, quite a few people do it. As long as you don't record private conversations in sure no one would mind.

Well this might be off topic but take a look at the Japanese and the extreme they do in doing bus filming up to four hour trip for each bus film on you tube.

Yes but i'm concern of people siting next to me and people around me and worried of being caught by the cops.

You can always ask the driver on boarding the bus of what you were planning to do and whether he had any objections. And keep peoples privacy in mind.

You could always try to get emptier buses so that there aren't as many people sitting around you. I know this isn't always possible, but it's worth a try.

I tend to sit behind the centre door and film forward but start filming out of the window to avoid faces (like people alighting from the bus)

Sit above the rear axle (the seat that has the slightly raised floor after the rear doors), film when it is quiet and don't film buses being thrashed to within an inch of their lives. Also, lower the camera when passengers are boarding

Presumably you want scenery, so would be best to sit in front n/s seat as in the videos linked above.

You could pause recording at stops while pax are boarding/alighting.
