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.

IEEE uses both forms in some contributed documents.

But only the "buses" form in its published standards documentation.

You can go to the advanced search page to search for the exact word "busses" and it is not it any of the published standards.
