Vehicles are one of the most common symbols in dreams:

In the bible, they used animals to represent ministries - arriving on a donkey meant to arrive in strength and peace. It also represented humility, a horse would represent a powerful ministry.  In the bible, chariots were representative of powerful, prophetic ministries and were able to carry more than one person. Now ministries are fueled by the Holy Spirit - interpreted as oil (Matt. 25:3,4) so now the "vehicles' in our parables are no longer steeds and dappled horses but modern cars powered by oil (Holy Spirit).

bicycle- moving by the power of your own flesh or works – not by the power of God

blow up raft – resting on the Spirt and the Word

boat – ministry based on the word (water of the word) 

bus – large ministry

car – If possible, notice the type, condition and color of the car: if it is the car you drive in real life it      

           will represent a real life or "in the flesh event" situation or event. If it is one you know is yours but it    

           is not the car you drive in real life - it represents movement in the spirit or a spiritual situation or event.
