The Commuter  is the term referring to the small, regional airlines, sometimes called puddle-jumpers.

In the travel context, a "commuter" is a person who travels regularly between their home and place of work or study. Commuters typically use public transportation, such as buses, trains, or subways, or they may drive their own vehicles.

For example, a person who lives in a suburban area and takes a train into the city for work would be considered a commuter. Similarly, a student who takes a bus from their home to a university campus would be considered a commuter.

Commuter travel is a major segment in the transport industry, and companies such as train operators, bus companies, and ride-sharing services often target commuters as their main customers. Some hotels also have special deals for commuters who are looking for a place to stay overnight close to their working place.

Commuter transportation services may offer special amenities such as reserved seating or priority boarding, or they may offer discounts or rewards programs for regular commuters.
