What is a minibus?

A minibus is, as the name suggests, the smaller version of a large luxury bus with slightly more number of seats than a minivan can accommodate. The concept here is to allow people to choose a smaller bus when they do not need a regular size bus and can still have the same comfort and amenities the larger buses can offer. 

The number of seats that a minibus can accommodate ranges between 15-25 depending upon its size. The front-engine, front-entrance minibuses are ideal for a smaller group to travel together without having to spend more. redBus is offering a wider range of such buses to choose from to suit your demands and destination.
