Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for bus is presented. In the food service industry, bus means to clear the tables of dirty plates or crumpled napkins. A busboy was originally known as an omnibus, a Latin word meaning for all, which was applied to table-clearers because they usually bussed all the tables. Omnibus was also used as a name for a horse-drawn carriage that anyone could hire.
