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

    Re: Feeder bus and Public bus

    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.

    Re: Feeder bus and Public bus

    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.
