Sometimes I work on a bus or in places, where I can't use internet.
Is there a way to use Trello offline?

As of July 2015, (question asked back in 2011) you still (!) can't do much offline beyond see lists of cards, but:
Yes, we are working on this. We have a plan on what we need to do. It's a big project and it will be a long while before we have something to show you.
You can currently:
- create cards while offline
- add comments while offline
- upload attachments while offline
- view cached boards while offline
We are working on expanding this. We have a plan on what we need to do. It's a big project and it will be a long while before we have something to show you.
...unfortunately, other than viewing my lists, I can't do anything [while offline] without it falling apart.
Any editing to my board (e.g. adding a list, adding a card , editing card details) is usually not registered and, in some cases, causes the app to crash.
For the desktop users: I am working on something that may help (Linux/Windows users for now)
It's called Focus|Project for Trello it's still in development (long story :) ) but I also am a user (on Ubuntu).
It is not meant to be a replacement for Trello at all, but an addition: expect a "single card + list grid view" rather than a board or timeline.
Do expect past board data + a growing offline mode, image editing, dark UI and a battery-friendly nature rather than collaboration, chat, power-ups & animations.
Feature-wise it might be more or less used to bridge an hour or two of a journey or unexpected outage, assuming the project planning part is mostly already done (eg. card members cannot be edited yet) and the app is in regular (not necessarily continuous) use - i.e. can update.
There are silly mistakes/bugs at this point, partly as I have been going for prototyping features for a while to see if things will work - I think it's soon ready to aim for a bit more seriousness again.
For now, I suppose it's better than nothing - do feel free to
Try! (of course)
Let me know your biggest pain point (only one please! I am snowed under ... I can't help spotting problems myself :) if there's visible interest - there's development I guess)
Show interest (but not be too hard - e.g. you may need to restart it after going back online to see the changes)
Grab a license (on Win), whether free, or even - somewhat speculatively - a pro and thereby support development
