A layover is a point where a transportation method stops where a passenger is closer to their destination but not there yet.

Used mostly in air travel, a layover is a connection, usually where a passenger requires more than one flight to reach their final destination (a through passenger). However, a connection may also occur where the flight (or other transport mode) stops to refuel or let passengers off. This usually happens more on non-flight transport, such as bus travel.
