person who travels in a vehicle without operating it
A passenger is a term that is used for a person who travels in a vehicle, but not the driver or a person working in the vehicle.
There are two common ways in which the term is used:
- The first is for persons who ride in cars or vans. The term is used for these type of passengers if they have or have not paid for the ride.
- The second is for persons who pay to ride in public transport vehicles such as buses, trains, aircraft, and ships. People who work on the vehicle are crew, not passengers.
