1/ The numbers of private and commercial buses given here are estimates by the Federal Highway Administration of the numbers in use, rather than the registration counts of the States.

2/ This column consists primarily of publicly owned school buses but includes a few privately owned school, institutional, and industrial buses registered free or at a reduced rate. Municipally owned transit buses are included with commercial buses. This information, compiled chiefly from reports of State authorities is incomplete in many cases.

3/ In some instances church, industrial and other private buses are included here; and in other instances privately-owned school buses could not be segregated from commercial buses, and are included with the latter.

4/ State did not provide current data. Table displays State's 2008 data for private and commercial and state, county and municipal buses.
