You were legitimately confused, which is fine because you didn't necessarily expect him to use the legal definition of highway. But once he established that's what he was using, there is no reason not to use it that way. Using highway in its colloquial definition is more confusing as many people use highway to refer to any major surface road. e.g. in some states what we call "Route 17" would be called "Highway 17." Therefore BusMgr is making it less confusing by using well-accepted definitions instead of colloquialisms.
