Busses in the dream could symbolize people, mainly the ones around you that have an influence on you – directly or indirectly. Seeing yourself chasing a bus in the dream could, therefore, mean you will soon be tempted to follow your peers, you are not where you are supposed to be, or that you are destined to achieve all that your role models have done.
Those are just a few examples. Here are some more dream interpretations as well as examples of dreams about chasing a bus.

Since we have said busses in the dream sometimes symbolize those around you, such as your peers, seeing yourself chase one could mean you feel left behind by your peers. This could be about any area of your life. For example, you could find yourself lagging behind careers-wise, education-wise, or relationship-wise.
While you cannot avoid comparing yourself with others, even if just with a fleeting thought, it is important to still understand that you are your own person, with your own spotlight and your own ladder to climb. It is okay to get hints and clues from those around you, but do not feel pressured to tag tightly behind.
You will manage to achieve what your role models have
The bus you saw could be a representation of the people you consider to be your role models. Seeing yourself chase a bus in a dream could imply that you have what it takes to chase after the things that those that inspire you have achieved.
The chasing itself symbolizes your iron will to get where your role models are. It is incredibly hard to chase after a bus on foot. But as this is exactly what you are doing, it is a sign that you are willing to do anything to get yourself a spot on the high table, sitting next to the ones that inspire you.
You have too much on your plate
The fact that you are chasing this bus in your dream means you have very little time to do everything you need to do without having to rush.

Giving yourself too many responsibilities could jeopardize your life’s journey as a whole. In the end, you might end up not achieving anything. You will need to focus your attention, your will, and your time on things that matter so you can, symbolically, get on the bus without having to chase it.

This could manifest in ways such as keeping up with the joneses or simply following whatever the crowd is up to. The dream does not mean you are prone to peer pressure. It simply is a warning for you not to be overpowered by it.
