A bus (or an omnibus or autobus) is a road vehicle that is designed to specifically carry passengers.

A bus may seat a maximum of anywhere from 8 to 200 passengers; depending on size and style.

Currently, in the United States, buses represent the most widely used form of public transportation, although they are also used in both tourism and as private transport. 

Today, the most common type of bus in use is the single-decker bus; with larger loads carried by double-decker buses and articulated buses, and smaller loads carried by minibuses.  

Within the U.S., there are, on average, 5.5 billion passenger-trips every year, which amounts to approximately 21 billion passenger mile per year.  

Bus-related accidents increased by 32% in the period 2005 and 2006, and by another 25% in the period 2006 and 2007.  

Statistical figures for bus-related accidents in 2007 are as follows:

  • 278 Buses Involved in Fatal Crashes
  • 322 Fatalities in Crashes Involving Buses
  • 12,917 Buses Involved in Non-Fatal Crashes
  • 6,953 Buses Involved in Injury Crashes
