A Dolmus was a minibus which had 8 seats on it and would not travel until all of the seats were full. A minibus which you all call a "Dolmus" doesnt have to be full before it can travel.

Cutz mukemme!
Now we know the actual visual difference between a minibus and a "dolmush", what is "minibus" in Turkish???
Would it be otobus for bus and kucuk for mini?

Hi
Dolmus is a general name, it is said for rowboat, motorboat, car, minibus etc. which is used to carry passengers. :)
