Yup, you've made myself clear...at least for me.
Let´s give your question a whirl, then.
I'm in another neighborhood, I have to catch a bus to go home... Can I say??
To me sounds an odd structure, I would rather use "I´m in another neighborhood, I have to take the bus to go home"
'I'm going home' or 'I am gong to my house.' depends what you mean, they might have distinct meanings.
'That bus is going 'towards' São Paulo.' I don´t regard the wisest choice of words.
'That bus is going to Sao Paulo.'
'That bus is heading Sao Paulo.'
Of course there are cases in wich TOWARDS is used along with a city/country/place etc, but it is not so often as it seems. One instance is this:
In your examples, though, I think wouldn´t sound natural (and of everyday use). TO would have the same effect (para - em direção á... )
Others may complement my answer, since this one is a kick off.
