The original meaning of the word shuttle is the device used in weaving to carry the weft. By reference to the continual to-and-fro motion associated with that, the term was then applied in transportation and then in other spheres. Thus the word may now also refer to:


Air transport[edit]

Land transport[edit]

Automotive brands[edit]

Mass transit[edit]

Transport systems operating at frequent intervals on a short, (mostly) non-stop route between two places


Arts, entertainment, and media[edit]
