Hi. "You are better off waiting for the bus" and "your best bet is to wait for the bus" Are these two interchangeable? Or is there a slight difference?

Thanks.

    They are often interchangeable, although:

    You're better off waiting for the bus = said after (a) suggestion(s), to which taking the bus is preferable

    Your best bet is to wait for the bus = statement that the best option is to take the bus, and may or may not be said after (a) prior suggestion(s)
