The word "bus" is a general term that can refer to a city bus, a school bus, an interstate bus (like Greyhound), a private chartered bus or an airport shuttle. In all cases, a bus is heavier than most cars, large enough to carry many passengers. Bus accidents and injuries take many forms, including:
- Pedestrians struck by buses
- Bus passengers injured while boarding or exiting buses
- Bus passengers injured inside a moving bus
- Bicyclists, motorcyclists and occupants of automobiles injured in collisions with buses
