    Bus Gates

    Correct?

    bus gates

    Examples/ definitions with source references
    Hi everybody,

    Is that expression commonly used at airports - contrary to the gates where you board the plane via a bridge?

    I have to make it clear that we only mean those gates where people take the bus to their planes.

    Thanks for your help.

    Welche Sprache ist nun welche? Falls Deutsch dabei, finde ich den Begriff nicht im Wörterbuch.

    @ Werner

    Dieser Ausdruck stand in einem deutschen Text über einen internationeln Flughafen.
    Ich bin mir nur nicht sicher, ob man in England / USA auch "bus gate" sagt?

    Da guckst du am besten auf der Internetseite eines dt. Flughafens, der Flugsteige hat, die mit Bussen bedient werden.
    Gates werden in deutschen Flughäfen (oder zumindest manchen) als Flugsteige bezeichnet, nicht als Gates (fiel mir letzte Woche im Flughafen bei einer Durchsage auf - die sprachen von Flugsteig, nicht Gate)

    As a passenger, I've only ever heard "gates", but the meaning of "bus gates" should be pretty obvious.

    "Bus gates" turns up here, albeit in quotation marks.

    'Bus gates' doesn't actually sound 100% clear to me; people might wonder if that was a foreign speaker trying to explain where to catch the city bus.

    I think we more often call the kind used for boarding a shuttle bus, so we might say something like 'gates with shuttle bus boarding,' 'gates served by shuttle bus' ... Perhaps you could search for examples using that term, because it could really depend on context.

    In some US airports, IIRC, they don't actually tell you which gates those are in advance, perhaps because people would be annoyed at the delay.

    I agree with #6.

    Usually I am told to go to a bus terminal!
    But in your case I would say it's a gate where you board the bus to your aeroplane. I've never seen or heard the term "bus gate".

    @9:

    In that context it means a short section of road which only buses are allowed to use.

    @4, 10:

    As a passenger there probably wouldn't be any reason for you to hear a specific term for it - usually they just tell you to go to a particular gate and you find out when you get there that you have to get a bus. But presumably the airport has a term for referring to the concept internally.
