How do I put a bus to use?

I'm pretty new to Factorio, and I recently learned a bit about these things people call buses. I made a small 2 conveyor bus, but now I'm not really sure how I use the resources on the bus. My goal is to move a small portion of the iron to a section of my factory. How should I do this? I was thinkin...
