A self-propelled, rubber-tired road vehicle designed to carry a substantial number of passengers (i.e. 10 or more), commonly operated on streets and highways. A bus has enough headroom to allow passengers (unless they are exceptionally tall) to stand upright after entering, and its body can typically accommodate at least 16 adult passenger seats (various legal definitions may differ slightly as to minimum capacity.) Propulsion may be by gasoline, diesel fuel, alternative fuels, or electric motor. (TRB)
