These are all appropriate when explaining the scarcity of buses in your area.You could also say : "Buses operate infrequently in my area as it is in the countryside "

Buses are pretty scarce because I live in the countryside.
This means that it is rare (not common )to find a bus where you live.

Buses are only available once in a while where I live in the countryside.
This means that there is no regular time schedule for buses to operate where you live.

上記例文は、バスの本数が少ないことを適切に説明しています。他には、「私が住んでいる地域は田舎なので、バスはたまにしか来ません。」住んでいるところが田舎なので、バスが見つかるのはレアという意味です。

強調するには、onlyを使います。
「一時間に一本もない」というのは、less than one per hourになります。

  • We have a very infrequent bus service in the countryside

    play icon

  • You'd be lucky to get a bus coming every 90 minutes where I live!

    play icon

If a service is sparse and the timetable has numerous long periods when nothing is happening, then you may say that the activity (in this case, a bus service) is infrequent.
You could add stress and perhaps a little humour when giving your dissatisfied opinion about the service, by starting your comment: "You'd be lucky...."
運行がまばらで、バスもなにもない時間が長いのであれば、infrequent であると言えるかもしれません。この場合は bus serviceが infrequent と言えます。

" You'd be lucky..."から言い始めてバスについての不満を表すと、ユーモアがあって面白いですね。

When you want to explain that you live in the countryside and that buses don't come too often, then you may explain in the following ways:
-I live in the countryside, so buses don't come all the time. You'd be lucky to get one every hour.
-I live in the countryside, so buses come every other hour and not every hour.
田舎に住んでいて、バスがあまり来ないことを説明したいなら次のように言えます。

-I live in the countryside, so buses don't come all the time. You'd be lucky to get one every hour.
(田舎に住んでいるのでバスが来ないこともあります。1時間に1回バスに乗れたらラッキーですよ)

-I live in the countryside, so buses come every other hour and not every hour.
(田舎に住んでいて、バスは1時間おきにしか来ません)

When talking about how often a bus runs we call this the 'bus service' so if the bus runs every hour it is called an 'hourly bus service'
By saying in the countryside it means it is not the town and more out they way explaining why the buses are not hourly (every hour)
バスの運行頻度のことは 'bus service' と言います。ですから、バスが1時間に1本走るなら、'hourly bus service' と言えます。

'in the countryside' は「〔都会でなく〕田舎」という意味です、バスが1時間に1本もない理由を説明しています。

To explain that there isn't a bus every hour because you live in the countryside, you can say:
"The bus doesn't come often because I live in the countryside."
"Since I live in the countryside, the bus only comes once every few hours."
「田舎に住んでいるので、バスが1時間に1本もない」は次のように言えます。

"The bus doesn't come often because I live in the countryside."(田舎煮住んでいるので、バスの本数が少ない)
"Since I live in the countryside, the bus only comes once every few hours."(田舎に住んでいるので、バスが数時間に1本しかない)
