"more comfortable"[edit]

I don't agree that coach-style lines are universally more comfortable, and in any case that's unjustified and subjective, so I removed the modifier from the lead. Buses are just designed for their purpose, which has been well-defined for some time now--a coach0style bus would not be very comfortable carrying twice as many people as seats.

Blurb for DYK[edit]

Did You Know

....that a transit bus in the U.S. is usually operated by an urban-suburban bus line, a governmental public transit agency, or a contractor and is used on public transit routes? (suggested image:VOTC9218.jpg)

But what is it...[edit]

This article goes straight into discussing operation of transit buses in the United States.

Honestly, they exist elsewhere in the world (I think)... Also it doesn't actually state, in the lead section, what a transit bus is.

Also some references would be nice as to who decided that the bus described is known as a transit bus as opposed to some other term (commuter bus being an alternate name provided in the article).Garrie 11:13, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Okay, look, a transit bus is a city bus, and in Berks County, it's called a Barta bus. --Mark Lessig (talk) 14:34, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
