David "Dave" Bus (born May 19, 1978 in Lichtenvoorde, Gelderland) is a Dutch professional football defender who is currently with Go Ahead Eagles, having signed for them in the summer of 2008.

Bus came in to professional football relatively late, starting his career at De Graafschap in 2004 at the age of 25 after a few stints at amateur clubs in his hometown, Lichtenvoorde. He became a fan favourite during his first season at De Graafschap. He played 29 games during the 2004/05 season, helping his side get promoted to the Eredivisie (Dutch Premier Division). The next season he played more games and performed better but his efforts were not enough to stop De Graafschap being relegated back to the Eerste Divisie (Netherlands' second highest league). He only played 15 games in the Eerste Divisie during the 2006/07 season after the arrival of Cerezo Fung a Wing. De Graafschap were once again promoted to the Eredivisie in the 2007/08 season and opted to play a 3-man defence and with captain René Bot, Cerezo Fung a Wing and Stephan Keller the usual starters, Bus was left out in the cold.

In January 2008 Aberdeen signed Bus on a six month loan deal with first option to buy if he impressed. He joined fellow Dutchmen Jeffrey de Visscher and Karim Touzani at Pittodrie. At Aberdeen, Bus made limited appearances and even scored an own goal against Inverness CT. On 15 April 2008, he was told he would not be offered a deal to stay at Aberdeen and would be free to return to the Netherlands.

In summer 2008, he signed a contract with Go Ahead Eagles of the Eerste Divisie.
