A bus is a full-sized bus. For commercial purposes, busses can come in various sizes and styles. They often serve various purposes, depending on the kind of vehicle needed and its purpose for use. In general, they’re designed to carry multiple passengers, from just a few up to 300. You will likely need a special license in order to operate a bus.
Buses are used by various types of businesses and organizations. Transit agencies, churches, colleges, school districts, nonprofits, and community service organizations are just some examples of who might need this type of transport vehicle. Some buses are configured to carry riders who use wheelchairs and must meet additional government standards.
Vehicles that aren’t necessarily considered to be buses actually fall within this category. Van-style vehicles and 15-passenger non-CDL buses and vans are examples you may not have thought about. In addition, there are small and medium-sized passenger buses that carry 16 to 25 or more than 26 people. Transport vans and shuttle buses are on the small end. Tour busses are some of the largest.
