Question Computer Bus

I know CPU interacts with I/O devices through a bus. I was wondering what is the physical hardware that you can use to implement a bus?

The BUS is usually wires/traces (or logical wires/traces, depending on the device it's implemented on) on a board to allow the flow of data (0's and 1's) to the other devices that are on the BUS and such.

Had to make a simple CPU in one of my college courses on an FPGA that used a logical bus to transfer all the 0's and 1's to the other logical devices on the circuit (multiplexers, logic gates, switches, etc.) to add/subtract/shift.
