Buses are a common form of vehicles used for public transport.

A vehicle (from Latin: vehiculum{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}<ref name=OED>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=citation }}</ref>) is a mobile machine that transports people or cargo. Most often, vehicles are manufactured, such as wagons, bicycles, motor vehicles (motorcycles, cars, trucks, buses), railed vehicles (trains, trams), watercraft (ships, boats), aircraft and spacecraft.<ref name="MacMillian">Halsey, William D.

Land vehicles are classified broadly by what is used to apply steering and drive forces against the ground: wheeled, tracked, railed or skied.
