If you need a vehicle for shuttling people to and from a hotel or airport, there are many alternatives to consider, but in many cases, the best option is one that carries a good number of passengers but is small enough to get around easily. That’s where mini-buses, which are also sometimes referred to as microbuses or passenger vans, come into play. They aren’t as large as traditional buses, which makes it easier for them to navigate parking lots and crowded city streets, but they can hold up to 30 or more people, depending on the configuration.
Mini-buses’ relatively small size often makes them more fuel-efficient than other alternatives, as well. Some models are big enough to have the double-paneled sliding doors or bi-fold entry doors you typically find on a larger bus, but most of them have conventional doors like those found on a car, truck, or van. Popular mini-bus models include the Ford Transit, IVECO Daily, Mercedes-Benz Citan, and others.
