Bonjour! When would one use dans for travel that is enclosed (i.e. bus, metro) vs using en? Thanks!
You can use "dans" + [means of transportation] when you wish to express you are inside one.
Take a look at the lesson below which explains this grammar point:
Differences between French and English usages - Using "dans" with streets and means of transportation (French Prepositions of Location)
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
Just to exemplify:
Je suis dans le bus. -- I am in the bus (i.e., inside)Je voyage en bus. -- I travel by bus.
