    I have never heard of a "feeder bus" in BrE.

    As I said, in British English I have not heard of it. You have answered your own question by finding the Wikipedia link which makes it clear exactly what type of public bus a feeder bus is.

    Feeder buses are public buses. Not all public buses are feeder buses.

    Hi emsr2d2,
    do you mean public buses include tourist buses?

    In that case, how could emsr2d2 have meant that public buses include tourist buses? She didn't say anything about tourist buses.
