BUS OPERATOR EXEMPTION
A key element of commercial fueling programs is the ability to purchase fuel exempt from federal or state excise taxes if their status allows. This saves the company from having to file for a refund on their tax returns at the end of the year.

In certain intercity and local buses means fuel used in a bus engaged in furnishing (for compensation) passenger land transportation available to the general public.
The bus must be engaged in one of the following activities:
- Scheduled transportation along regular routes
- Nonscheduled operations if the seating capacity of the bus is 20 or more adults (driver not included)
- Vans and similar vehicles used for vanpooling or taxi service don’t qualify
Available to the general public
This means you offer service to more than a limited number of people or organizations. If a bus operator normally provides charter operations through travel agencies but has buses available for chartering by the public, this service is available to the general public.
A bus doesn’t qualify when its operator uses it to provide exclusive services to only one person, group, or organization. Also, intercity bus transportation doesn’t include transporting students and employees of schools or intercity transportation in a qualified local bus.
