Автобус is just a bus. About marshrutka you can read here: https://goo.gl/JuFHha. Marshrutkas are private owned unlike municipal buses

If it's about you using a vehicle (I go by bus) - not acceptable at all. However, it can be used to speak about route of some transport.

Цей автобус іде до вокзалу. (This bus goes to the train station).

However, I would say that word їхати in this situation is still more common.

Are you saying the translation is correct using either іде or їде?

It's possible in Ukrainian, but not in this course :)

In my mind, "чи їде.." here sounds more naturally. And, yes, I'm Ukrainian ;)
