Buses are an important part of public transport in places all over the world. Many people who do not have cars, especially the third world countries, use buses to get around. Buses make it easy for them to get to where they want to go.

Buses can have many types of bus. For example : The double decker bus.

A place where people wait for a local bus is called a bus stop. A building where people wait for a long-distance bus or where many buses meet is called a bus station.

There are many types of bus around the world. An example is a motorhome, which is a bus-like vehicle equipped for living. Typically, a motorhome will include a lounge area, dining area, small bathroom, a galley, kitchen and a corridor.
