What is the story of That Bus Is Another World?
Briefly it is about a guy named Wilson in a cab, on his way to a meeting in New York City.
When his cab pulls up beside a bus, Wilson sees a man kill the woman inside it.
As his cab begins moving again, Wilson has to decide if he should call the police or if he should just keep going to get to his meeting in time.
Where did Stephen King got the idea for this short story?
According to his website:
While stuck in traffic in Paris, Stephen noticed a bus next to him and wondered what might happen if someone was in a similar situation and witnessed someone cutting another passenger’s throat on the bus and knowing that the killer had seen them as they passed back and forth in traffic
By the way, this short story is also included in his 2015 short story collection, “The Bazaar of Bad Dreams“.

4.50 From Paddington Agatha Christie
When I read the part where Wilson witnesses the killing of the woman in the bus next to his cab in “The Bus Is Another World“, it instantly reminds me of Mrs. McGillicuddy.
Mrs. McGillicuddy the female character witnesses a brutal strangling murder occurring on a passing train in the 1957 novel “4.50 From Paddington” (US version: What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!) by Agatha Christie.
