    A girl I like gets on my bus a few stops after me. Been a while since we last talked but when she gets on it's a perfect chance to chat to her one to one without her friends or mine about. How do I grab her attention or at least get chatting to her, could talk as we get off the bus but don't wanna spend any time around her where I'm not chatting cause it just makes it more awkward

    This, only either quickly invite yourself to sit next to her if you don't get negative IOIs or else approach other than from behind (could feel creepy or else quickly become posturally awkward for her)

    Incidentally, I had an altercation with an Islamist on the bus who was sat behind me. Yes, it was awkward

    Opening your mouth and talking. Although it is2016, there's no special shortcut or technology.

    You know deep down the only way is to open your mouth and talk - which currently, you're too nervous to do.

    Sit behind her. Then drop something that will make a load noise, pick it up and when she turns around look at her and smile and say "hey, you go to my college don't you? But only sit behind her if the bus isn't really empty otherwise you will look like a creep.

    OP don't tap her shoulder.

    Most women would feel creeped out when a stranger guy touches them on public transport.

    i have to add that sitting in front works better less creepy and you can gauge her reaction and attentiveness better

    Sit behind her and cut off a lock of her hair (make sure she doesn't catch you).
    Place it under your pillow and go to sleep while thinking of her.
    She will be yours after a few days.

    OP has seen her before a couple of times and they have spoke on different occasions, so I'm going to assume she'll be aware of his presence. Also how is he going to get her attention?

    That's true, it's not like she's a new girl, could always just say hey or something I suppose, really that easy. Very easy if she's stood up and it's crowded. Normally is

    Yes but I'm gonna have to move seats to do so, and ensure she actually wants a conversation. I could just usher her over perhaps?
