A midibus is a bit larger than the minibus, but smaller than a full-size bus. 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.
