In what context? It could mean different things in different timetables. Tell us the context, we'll tell you what it means.

Did you see this when you looked at a flight that required connecting between two different airports in the same area (SFO & SJC, HOU & IAH)? If so, that means a auto shuttle bus between the two airports.

The universal codes for use by airlines when describing aircraft use "BUS" to denote a vehicle shuttle service of some sort, be it a van service to the bus services United uses in the Rockies, Rockford to O'Hare, at PDX, etc.

The Airbus codes usually look thusly: 319, 320, 330, 340, and 343 (for the A340-300).
