Move to the back of the bus!!

How do you express this in Chinese?  Politely?  Forcefully?  I have just had a bad experience, hanging onto the front of the bus, just inside the windscreen, while the back of the bus was half empty.  I could only think of 让一下! and, while it worked, and I got through to the back, that was not what I really wanted to convey.

Thanks Changye. I've just realised you may have solved two problems for me - the bus driver sometimes yells something I have not been able to catch. I thought that it might be 方言; now I think that it might be 串一串!  

I will have plenty of opportunities to practice 往后串一串!

I have been trying to figure out what the bus drivers have been yelling! I knew what it meant because once the driver stood up and pointed while yelling, but could never make it out. So you solved a mystery for me too.
