    company shuttle bus/company commute bus

    Source : self practice

    On Monday or Friday, as the traffic is much worse than the other days of the week, there is no way to drive.
    So I usually take the company shuttle bus/company commute bus. The bus goes on the bus-only lane, not affected by traffic jam.
    And also the bus route is a lot shorter because the bus goes through the plant(my company - public buses stop nearby).
    The bus stop is near my apartment at about five minutes' walk. It’s an easy way to go to work.

    Which is correct in the underlined?

    Re: company shuttle bus/company commute bus

    I think the common term is shuttle bus or commuter bus.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Shuttle bus works for me in your situation, whereas commuter bus is a rather routine/daily service.

    Is a commuter bus public transportation that doesn't belong to a company you commute to??

    Yes. Normally it's public transportation.

    Re: company shuttle bus/company commute bus

    Are the underlined parts correct?

    The bus goes on the bus-only lane(designated on city roads or express ways), not affected by traffic jam.
    And also the bus route is a lot shorter because the bus goes through the plant

    I don't know what you mean by through the plant.

    If you take an ordinary bus or a commuter bus, you have to get off at a bus stop nearby the company and take some walk.
    But if you take the company shuttle bus, the bus's destination is the company and when it arrives, it will go back to take the passengers of the next round.
    I'm not sure if the bus actually comes in thorough the gate A and goes out through the opposite gate B. If it comes in and goes out of the same gate, I guess it should be like this.

    And also the bus route is a lot shorter because the bus goes into the plant

    First the passengers get off the bus, then the bus might turn around and go pick up more passengers.
