We lost a student this year, she was hit crossing the road to get back to her bus stop. She and her siblings were outside waiting and something on the other side caught her attention. When she saw her bus she was afraid shed miss it and tried to run back, sadly she was hit.

I agree that there should be two adults on the bus, but more because around here the children's behavior is out of control.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

We don't really have school buses here so when I took the bus home I had to walk all the way down the hill, across a busy road, travel for 20 mins on a shock horror public bus and then cross another road and walk up another hill to get home! I was so glad when I started sixth form college and it was much easier.

To answer your question though, I don't see why it's a issue. Maybe I'm just used to travelling on the London buses with a huge mix of total strangers sharing the bus every day.

Not an issue to me.

If it did bother me, for whatever reason, I'd rearrange my schedule so that I could drive her/pick her up myself.

Back when my oldest was in first grade, she was the last student to arrive in her classroom, because she was on the last bus to arrive. She was shy, and it bothered her that everyone was looking at her when she came in at the last minute. Bothered enough by it to cry. So I made arrangements and drove her, so that she would get there earlier. Then we were both happy.

Every man is not a molestor waiting to pounce, after being a child abuse investigator I will say most children aremolested by family members, not strangers.

I am curious what all these people who believe every male of the species is a pervert waiting to pounce think about their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, and themselves.

If they have jobs where they are around children, or they coach, or they give their kids friends a ride home are they suspicious of their intentions?

Thank you. It's the people you know, whom you and your kids likely trust, who is statistically much more likely to be the offender, not the proverbial stranger.
