Alternative forms[edit]


shuttle bus (plural shuttle buses)

  1. Short-haul, limited-passenger buses, typically privately owned, such as by hotels, retirement villages, etc.; a shuttle.

Usage notes[edit]

Strictly speaking, a shuttle bus goes back and forth between two places. However, the term is also used more generally for short-haul transport that may be one-way or have multiple stops (including shared ride or loop), particularly for airport buses; compare loose use of limousine.
