"aboard" is used mostly for ships. It is not a verb, but an adverb or preposition. Occasionally it is used for very large vehicles such as buses and airplanes.

The captain yelled, "All aboard!" And we all got on board.
Thanks. Can you show me, what verbs do we use with "aboard"?

I usually agree with you but I don't necessarily agree with some of this post. I don't think I would use any of the sentences above. They're not wrong but they are not what people actually say. (In my humble opinion.) And I don't think that I've ever heard 'aboard' used in reference to a bus.

Aboard doesn't have to be for motion. They were all aboard the ship.
