I'm not sure what the actual rule is but it is actually dependent on what you are describing.For example to say "the dog was on the roof" is appropriate, but then again you wouldn't say "the dog was on the basement" would you?
Both are houses, right?
Same with transportation, you can get ON the train, ON or IN the bus, or ON or IN the plane, but not ON the car.
