Richard pegged my initial sentiment, but I think your issue is not
having a handy reference available. My AP Style points out the two
distinct words, bus and buss. Busses is still the correct plural for
buss.

When writing of vehicles, it's "buses". When writing of electronics, it
used to be "busses", but I'm told that the usage is changing to "buses"
for both types.



True? False? My usual references aren't available and my online searches
aren't helping. Will someone please help me out here with a quick
answer?
