I am about to go in my car.

This thread could make a good film title.

I was on a bus that claimed to have free wifi a while ago. As it was rural middle of nowhere my phone had no signal so I thought I'd try the bus wifi. Couldn't get it to work.

This has got me thinking,

On a plane

On a train

On a boat

In a car

Why ? If someone said they were 'on a car' you would assume they were lying on top of it. Why is it different for a plane or train ? (A boat I can sort of understand if it is an open one)

In a submarine - makes sense.

However so does in a plane or in a train. However we dont say that. Reason ?

Usages are rooted in how the majority see things.

On a [impersonal way of travelling]

In a [intimate extension of personal ego]
