Did You Know?
A minibus is also called a minicoach and a microbus. Its seating capacity ranges from 8 to 30. A midibus is a bit larger than the minibus, but smaller than a full-size bus.
The design of the minibus varies due to local and historical differences as well as usage. There are three classifications of minibus designs: body builds, purpose built, and van conversions.
Apart from personal or company use like going on a group tour or excursion, minibuses are used as a public transport. Some countries use this kind of vehicle as airport buses or shared taxis.
In Australia, the term van could mean a minibus, minivan, or panel van. In the UK, they use the term people mover instead of passenger van. In Japan, vans can refer to full-fledged station wagons and hatchbacks.
In the US, the term van could also mean a semi-trailer or a box-shaped trailer. Full-size vans are being used as commuter vans in urban areas since 1971. A step van is quite popular in North America because commuters can easily step in and out of the vehicle.
