More often than not, “busses or buses” are two words that seem very complicated on which is correct. Some say that the plural of bus is “Busses”, while some say its “Buses”; In this article, I will explain the both and state the best answer to the plural of bus.
The amazing thing about the English language is that no one is above mistake so don’t feel bad if you make the mistake of misplacing one for the other. Even graduates of English at times get confused about some words in the English Language.
Firstly, a Bus is a vehicle used for transportation. It’s a Latin word from “omnibus” meaning “for all”. It is used for carrying passengers or for moving goods from one place to another. In addition, it is the ideal plural of a Bus.
A buss is singularly”a kiss”. Its plural is Busses. Today it’s as if “Buss” is not much in use; if a writer or someone explaining wants to talk about a kiss, he/she will literally use the word “kiss”.
