The image shows a vehicle larger than a personal car and smaller than a coach, viewed from side, facing to the left.

The minibus is a square car, being designed for long journeys, but it is not as equipped in facilities for a high level of comfort, as in the case of a coach.

It also does not have a large number of seats, with limited interior space, only for sixteen to twenty two passengers and some luggage.

The outside shell of the car, also called the car body, is missing, hence the interior of the car it is shown.

The two pairs of wheels at the bottom, the rear, as well as the front pair, are highlighted by embossed circles with a middle blank spot.

On the left is the driver’s seat, respectively the first seat, along with the steering wheel in front of it, represented by a short, oblique and thickened line, and the hand brake, located below, highlighted by a vertical line with a round tip, all embossed.

On the floor, which is highlighted embossed, are located, on one side, five chairs with backrest, marked with a small and thick vertical line, glued to the base of a horizontal one.

The chairs are located above the floor, on rectangular pedestals rendered embossed.

Above the seats, towards the ceiling of the car, there is a reserved space for passengers’ luggage, which have the form of blank and horizontal rectangles.

Near left side, at the front door, are illustrated below, four blank, horizontal and parallel lines, representing the stairs for the passengers.

In the right corner, there is a man standing,  thus positioned to facilitate the comparison of the dimensions of the vehicle to the height of an adult.

Additional information

The minibus is a passenger carrying motor vehicle, which as a capacity is located between the private car and the bus. It has a seating capacity of up to 22 people, excluding the driver’s seat. The minibus is 8 meters long and 2 meters wide.

The minibus is a short vehicle, unsuitable for the upright position during transport. It has the advantage of offering more comfort and more space to the passengers than the private car, which makes the longer route less stressful.

Minibuses have the same technical platforms as cargo vans. The minibus has a public role and can be used in cities as a means of transport for persons, which transits by fixed route, ensuring the transport of people to airports. In addition, the minibus can be used for public services, without a preset route and fixed schedule, by local authorities, hospitals or foundations.

Considered to be the safest means of transport on the road, the minibus is often used for tourism purposes, for family trips and group trips. The minibus can also provide transportation for employees, students and athletes.

Some countries may require an additional class of driver’s licence over a normal private car licence. The need for such a licence may depend on the vehicle weight or size, the seating capacity, the driver age, the additional training.
