COVID-19 repatriation – coaches or buses?


Could you please do something to educate the news editors of the BBC, who clearly need assistance in differentiating between coaches and buses?

Regarding the confusion between the two terms, I do not think it gives a good impression of the industry when it is suggested that passengers are being moved long distances, in this instance from Oxfordshire to Wirral, on a vehicle which typically has less comfortable seating and limited legroom.

After all, a coach trip is often quite different to the type of journey you might traditionally take when commuting to work or visiting the shops.
