Given the international readership of Wikinews, I think replacing coach with bus would be a little more understandable. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 19:14, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand. Where is coach not understood? The US I know gets it; see for example here. We in the UK also do - which bits of the world don't? Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 19:45, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
I don't know anyone that uses that term in the US. Its not widely used. I just think if we are talking on an international level, everyone knows what a bus is. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 19:48, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
For the benefit of people out of sight, I nodded understandingly at that. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 19:51, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
But in the UK Bus and Coach have two different meanings. Chandlerjoeyross (talk) 19:55, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
I think people will work it out no bother. Technically, yes, they are seperate but realistically you could call a coach a form of bus. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 19:57, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
