Whether you need to get around town or want to see the world, travel requires transportation of some sort. The signs in this table can help you arrange your free-wheeling adventures.

Bus is fingerspelled B-S — leave out the “u.” To sign driving a bus, mimic a truck-size steering wheel at the lower chest level, wrap your hands around the imaginary wheel and steer back and forth. This motion also works for trucks, RVs (after you fingerspell R-V), or any large vehicle. Just fingerspell the big rig first.

Get the wheels in motion, so to speak, by using these automotive signs:

  • English: The car was in an accident.

    Sign: CAR ACCIDENT

  • English: If I miss the train, I’ll fly.

    Sign: TRAIN MISS — FLY ME

  • English: You need a motorcycle helmet.

    Sign: MOTORCYCLE HELMET — NEED YOU
