What does it mean when you dream about a passenger?

A passenger is a passive participant in a vehicle that is moving along. Positively, it could be a sense of going away to a vacation spot. Alternatively, a dream about being a passenger could represent a sense of being borne along by circumstances we do not control. If we are the driver, then perhaps we are taking responsibility for the passengers.
