crunch
 n.— «There are 28 buses currently owned by Go West Transit. “There’s not that much of a difference in how many buses we run per season,” Kiah said. “However, in a week in which we get a figure like what we did in the third week of January, we use a method called “crunches” in which we do use extra buses to accommodate for an abundant number of riders.”» —“Bus riders set record” by Rob Amaefule in Western Illinois University Western Courier (Moline, Illinois) Feb. 1, 2008.
