Buses and coaches are large motorized passenger vehicles, that are equipped to transport groups of people. There is a difference between long-distance buses or coaches and transit buses, that are designed to move passengers over a shorter distance. Buses and coaches are furnished, commonly have a luggage compartment and are well suited for international traveling and excursions. They are spacious, designed for more comfort than regular buses and vans, commonly have a row with chairs on either side of the bus, an onboard toilet and possibly a small sleeping area for the driver.
For dozens of people
Buses can be fully or partly built by integrated manufacturers. Some manufacturers only build the chassis, after which a coachwork factory adds the body to the frame. Other manufacturers build the bus completely and choose to do this without a chassis: this is called a monocoque. Buses and coaches can commonly transport dozens of people, varying from 15 up to 50 or more. This often depends on the number of decks on board of a bus.
Used in many different businesses
Buses and coaches are used in different businesses. Airports, schools, theme parks, sport teams, railroad companies, tour operators and many other businesses make use of buses. The amount of services on board varies: some are equipped with air conditioning and adjustable seats, while others have luggage racks above the seats for carry-on baggage. On-board rest rooms, on-board entertainment and curtains may also be part of the interior in a more luxurious used coach or bus.
