buses

  1. plural of bus

Usage notes[edit]

Buses is the usual plural of bus in both British and American English, ignoring the typical doubling of consonants after a short vowel. The form busses is less common. This may be because it was once understood as a shortening of omnibuses, which would be the regular plural of omnibus in both British and American English, if the word is understood to be accented on the first syllable. Doubling is seen more frequently when bus is used as a verb.
