Like train tickets, bus tickets need to be validated before your journey. Most times this means that you'll board the bus, find the validator near the entrance, then push your ticket into the slot, arrow-end first, until you hear the mechanism grind away.

This bus ticket if for an Airport shuttle bus ride. Notice the validation code under the arrow.
