Basically that.  I'm designing a bus and want to add seating for passengers, roughly the size of a standard foot infantry unit of 28.  Would I use the 75 kg standard seat for Crew, or would I use a standard Infantry Compartment?

I'm looking at MML as well, and the 75 kg seating is for 'extra crew seats' under the 'Crew and Quarters' section.

So, I'm assuming a bare-bones bus would use the Infantry Compartment to denote passenger seating.

IIRC the extra crew seats doesn't include the mass of the person sitting in the seat, just the seat. Infantry compartments include things like seats, straps, harnesses, and also the mass of the dudes and their equipment.
So while most of the time it wouldn't matter, with a small enough vehicle, a big enough unit, or a statistically greater rate of obesity among your customer base(assuming a large number of passenger seats), it might somewhat impact speed since the vehicle its normally rated weight.

Well, I finally checked MM last night - it's not conclusive, but the Lewis Skimmer bus and a passenger VTOL both us e the standard seat, so I'm going with them.  Thanks for helping.

Infantry compartments/bays generally include racks, not just seats...  Your call is the right one, I think.  :thumbsup:
