A minibus, microbus, or minicoach is a passenger carrying motor vehicle that is designed to carry more people than a multi-purpose vehicle or minivan, but fewer people than a full-size bus.

Minibuses have a seating capacity of between 8 and 30 seats.

Seating capacity is the number of people who can be seated in a specific space, in terms of both the physical space available, and limitations set by law.


Larger minibuses may be called midibuses.

A midibus is a classification of single-decker minibuses which are generally larger than a traditional minibus but smaller than a full-size single decker and can be anywhere between 8 metres and 11 metres long.


Minibuses are typically front-engined step-entrance vehicles, although low floor minibuses do exist.

Accessibility refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people who experience disabilities.
