You use the Default event bus for schedule based rules (although now I recommend using the new EventBridge Scheduler, which does not use any bus) or for events generated by AWS services.

If you create your own application that generates events, I recommend to use a Custom event bus.

Just in case If you need to have a queue to connect things I would suggest to create one pipe and distinguish destinations by preprocessing using filters, with no additional cost, pay only for events after filtering: The new feature: EventBridge Pipes

When you need to have different permissions on the bus. Generally, a good idea to have a separate bus
