Worst Things About The School Bus
The Top Ten
My primary school bus sucked on my bus there was a after school program. Which they had to get out on most there were little kids but there so annoying sometimes the counsellors don't come out. Another bus top we have is on a busy road and we had to wait for this kid every time for her mom to pick her up. Once we had to wait at least 30 minutes for her.
The 8th grade boys on my bus swear a lot, and one of them actually swore to the driver. Then the driver will yell for them to come to the front of the bus. But they don't. So he parks the bus and waits for them to come sit up front, and they are so stubborn! They refuse, and I'm 10 minutes late coming home.
My bus driver takes the most roundabout route possible to get home. Once, we were only a few blocks from my house and he drove right by it on a 10+ minute detour to drop off some girl. It's so bad that I usually try to get picked up even though I often get home later than if I took the bus; it's just unbelievably tedious!
I used to go by bus in 11th and 12th grade, they'd pick me up so early and I'd be the last one to reach home...with like 40 students there and getting home 2 hours after the school ended. - Ananya
This was in Elementary School since 4th grade I had a special 13 year old from another classroom he was in 7th Grade he hit a teacher aide in the head with his fist closed he smashed her head like an exploding bomb he had down syndrome it was after school I was in the bus and the driver was there some students arriving on the bus I saw that what he did so than he got in trouble she told his mom. Then he hit my friend in the head he was moving his hands like an autistic person he pushed him very hard from the head felt down he said OH MY GOD And the this obese lady walks in the bus like a monster! That was the worst bullying incident that I have ever experienced in all my years of school Since 2011 it was the worst year in the whole planet! - Lordvader3500
There was this jerk who looks 14 years old even though he was in 4th grade when I was in 1st grade which was when he started to bully me. It went on until 5th grade which I guess he started driving. He made my life a literal hell. I hated the bus because of him. The guy let everyone sit in the back, even little kids and he wouldn't let me sit in the back. He let all my friends sit in the back and called me horrible names and convinced my friends to bully me. I hate him so much! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I'm 14 years old so I can scare him off for you though I'm quite short - AlphaQ
If I ever got seated with some bully, I would've ended up throwing that person out the window within 3 minutes
When I was in high school I rode a bus with other special ed kids. One day while coming home from school 1 kid decided to be a jerk and did something (I don’t know what the kid did) to taunt/annoy me. I repeatedly told the kid to stop but the kid didn’t listen. Then suddenly the bus driver loses it and yelled at me to be quiet real loud and harshly. I was scared so I started to cry. Then the other kids decided to taunt me. The bus driver decided to do the exact same thing. She also started to take a video with her phone. I screamed for her to delete it and she refused. This occurred during the entire ride home. When I got off the bus I was so upset that I was crying hysterically. I told my parents and they were very angry. The next day they went to the school and told the principal. Later that day the principal told everyone on the bus that what they did was wrong. It put an end to it for good.
That was the worst bullying incident that I have ever experienced in all my ...more
Most of the bus drivers I get are sexist. Most of the friends I have on the bus are boys, but girls have to sit on the right and boys on the left. He even does that with siblings! The girls like me have better seats, too, so the boys feel angry that they don't get respect. Whenever the bus driver let's us off, if she's a woman then she says, "GIRLS! GET YOUR BUTTS OFF OF MY BUS AND BE SNAPPY! BOYS, YOU STAY 'CAUSE THE GIRLS GET MY RESPECT, BEING YOUNG LADIES! " As this girl who goes unnamed walks by, she says, "... AND YOU SHUT UP YOUNG LADY! I'VE HAD ENOUGH WITH THIS FILTHY SCREAMING OF YOURS! I'M NOT LETTING NOBODY SCREAM IN HERE! " even when SHE'S screaming too. When someone tells her that she was screaming too, she says that she won't take a nasty, liar's attitude. Also: One time there was a kind bus driver. The bus monitor lady watched the bus driver like a hawk witch. When he accidentally missed a turn, she started saying really loudly, "SEE?! WE MISSED A TURN 'CAUSE ALL YOUSE ...more
Same thing! Whenever we go on field trips the girls have to sit on the right, while the boys sit on the left! I mean, I don't like sitting with girls. They always want my stuff. The boys are hilarious. I want to tell my bus driver that I'm a tomboy, so too bad! - HyenaLover
All of the bus drivers I've got since 2nd grade were mean. The one I have this year I probably the meanest I can ever have. First of all, she tells us where to sit. The first few days of school she was nice and let us sit where we wanted. She must have memorized which people were friends and separated the. Me and my friends used to all sit in the last seats, but now some of us sit in the front, some in the middle and I sit in the back. Second of all, she won't let us talk no matter what. My bus got in a crash yesterday and I needed to borrow someone's phone to call my mom and let her know I was ok but the bus driver didn't let me because there was no talking allowed. Third of all, she threatens to report everyone to the school if they do any minor thing like whispering. Forth of all, she comes at different rimes everyday, seriously. One day, my bus came at 7:45 to pick us up and the next day she came at 8:15. The day after that, she came at 7:30 so you never know when the bus is ...more
My bus driver is sexist to the point where she has gone in front of the school board for it, but got rewarded! Most of the guys on my bus stopped taking the bus because of it. She will yell at me (a 4.0 grade average junior taking college level classes that hasn't been in trouble in 3 years) because I'm "being unruly". She also yells at guys for being in the middle of the bus so she can't see, meanwhile the back windows of the bus are fogged over. When I was trying to be nice to her and wipe the fog off the back window of the bus so that she could see better (I was in the back most seat) she tried to make me (again, a 4.0 grade average junior taking college level classes) go up in front of the school board for somehow "trying to make her wreck the bus" and almost got me suspended! The school will not do anything about her because they won't punish a woman! I'm looking foward to getting my car so I don't have to deal with her anymore.
Once in kindergarten my bus driver was angry because I'm the last one on the bus and made me get off at the elementary school. I got completely lost and started crying and my dad managed to find me, a 4 year old, crying in a random neighborhood. - Screw_The_School_SystemV 28 Comments
Every time I ride the bus I always make sure I brought headphones and my phone. So I can drown the horrible music, little kids, and stupid people out by lite ing to Slayer, Slipknot, Trivium, Korn, System of a Down, Whitechapel, Lamb of God, and Children of Bodom.
My bus driver memorizes who each persons friend is and separates them completely when they try to sit together quietly. I always have to sit in the last seat and my friend sits in the first seat. I hate the bus.
I'm 15 and my bus driver makes me sit with a 10 year old kid. He does this because I have trouble talking to the kids my age, mainly because their girls and I'm a guy, plus they're weird. And the 10 year old is a lil thuglet
Yes exactly. I'm 11 and I have a 15 yr old bully on my bus he said I better shut up bfore he got out his seat and knock me. He was about to hurt me do I yelled BRENDEN SAID THE F WORD! And she got into him (he sits close to me we have assigned seats) and he said that I was talking Crap about him and I didn't do I said I didn't and everyone hates me since I'm new to middle school and I have such a bubbly energetic personality and my bus driver asked everyone when I got off who thinks I should be moved to the front and almost everyone raised their hand so I'm being moved to the front and I'm about to talk back to her Monday about it and so I'm probably going to be put with and even meaner and more bossy high schooler...

We don't have a bus at my regular school but when I go to summer school (no, I'm not an idiot), we have to take the bus and it's hot on that bus. There are 2 tiny fans and they're BOTH pointed at the driver, talk about selfish. We can put down our windows but it's still hot. Especially since I live in Chicago the weather gets fierce.
I agree. At least three of the seats on my bus have one or more (notice I said "or more", which is actually the case) nasty stains that someone sits on. My crush sits almost right across from me, and her seat has five nasty spots from a brownie that is at least five years old.
My bus driver yells at us to keep the windows up, but sometimes she lets us put them down as long as we put them back up. Like if you aren't allowed to put the windows down, why do the busses have them?
I was forced to smell gross odors and it was so hot during the summer!V 10 Comments
The bus driver will suspend you from the bus if he sees you with your phone honestly I go on my phone anyway. I'd rather be kicked out of the bus for a stupid reason then not texting my parents for an urgent reason. - KittenCat
Really your not aloud to have fun on your electronics after.7 hours of schoo
I feel bad for people with this rule. On my bus we can use our electronics but we have to turn off the volume or use earphones.
No, this is not true in usa - EliHbkV 5 Comments
There is this black group in the back. I have nothing against black people. They are just as good as white people and it's not fair that they had to discriminated. But it turns out that the black people I see...well...they are wild. And the group talks about sex and stuff like that. Girls are in the group too. They throw stuff at people out the window. I ALSO RECKON THAT I GOT HIT IN THE HEAD AT LEAST 20 TIMES A YEAR BECAUSE THAT GROUP THROWS STUFF.
I don't know why this isn't higher; my bus has all the bad kids on it, and they like smoke on the bus, they pass weed around and the bus driver pretends not to notice. One time, we went to sit in a seat that they typically sit in, and they literally headbutted my friend until she fell over. And they play rap music loud enough to drown out every conversation on the bus and talk over it.
This is true in my bus. Our city has a stipulation for being innocent and spoiled, but the back of the bus is the opposite of the "innocent" part. - Turkeyasylum
There were10th graders who were quite fine ( I was in 11th grade then )..all they did was yelling mean stuff at people outside lol. - AnanyaV 10 Comments
I know how you feel because once when I was on the bus I was sitting in the best seat and this little kid named Daniel was sitting next to me and next thing you know he wiped his boogers on the seat and ate them so when I had the chance I moved to the next best seat and try to avoid Daniel and my new seat has a swear on it which is honestly funny as heck. - QuickMan
YES little nasties be wiping their boogies all over the seat and putting their muddy shoes everywhere! And people taking off their shoes AND SOCKs! ew
When there's humidity on the window and I wondered if a weird kid somehow licked it or someone threw up on it.
The bus drivers never cleanV 4 Comments
Especially when the kids were being so loud the bus driver pulls the bus over to yell at everyone including the innocent kids
It is only 2 months after the school year started, and 4 times the bus came one hour late. Enrichment classes were wasted because of this. The bus company cannot hire drivers and are running short on them. Thank goodness I drive in when the bus is over 25 minutes late.
So true especially in the winter when it is like -30 and you have to wait for a long time at your bus stop and you want the bus to hurry up so you can warm up
My bus is late for school EVERY DAY in the winter because of snow, even if it was one flake it's late
A few months ago like December we were waiting for our bus it was cold.Some kids played their band insterments
Others like me messed around or looked for a warm place.One kid looked up a video of a fireplace “to keep warm”.
Me and my friend found a unlocked door.
Then our gym teacher told us the sub driver was late because he went to the cats meow thrift store he got there an hour late so some (the last ones to get off) were two hours late
You are the oldest student on the bus. Then you have a handful of elementary school students that talk and yell and scream that slow down the bus driver. In my experience, the bus driver had to stop many times to prompt the passengers and assign seats to avoid conflict. It usually takes more than 30 minutes to get home because the annoying brats ruin it for you, even if you were the best behaving person. - GreedyPigeon
My bus crashed a few weeks right next to the board of education building for my city. When it crashed, all the kids on the bus freaked out and tried to get out but the bus driver and bus assistant won't let us out. We had to wait in the bus in the same spot until the person from the board of education (which was right next to us) said if we can continue or if we had to go to the hospital. I mean, why do we have emergency exits if we are not allowed to get out of them.
I was on a bus that once and my teacher told me the bus were using to get to our field trip crashed into a accident once.
The windows become misalligned so easily and buses break down so often.My buses emergency exit has a metal grill so you can never know if the window is safe or not. Also, my friends seat slid out while the bus was moving so she had to push it back in and her footwent in the isle so she got in trouble for not sitting safely.
The only good thing is you jump off the edge.
We need to learn about these thingies which break the window. All everyone wants to do is talk about Shoe Game. My class is gonna get hit by the bus and become human pancakes. - Lunala
Teacher " you have to slide off the bus not jump out of it, please go back on the bus"
Me. " if this was a real emergency wouldn't the priority be getting away from the bus? " - Frouze
Uh-huh. yesterday I got a new bus driver and he skipped my stop and we had to go to the very last bus stop in our neighborhood.
Almost missed it 2 times last week... In the morning they couldn't enter my street, and in the afternoon I got to the bus RIGHT when she shut the doors, then opened them - kaitlynrad11
My bus is supposed to come at 6:51, and I go out 15 minutes before it comes. But it sometimes comes 10 minutes EARLY, and every single day I have to run like heck just in case it happens.
Fortunately the special needs school bus in Britain (Most kids walk to school or local buses have school runs) waits for you. They have a bus driver and another adult who is on the bus to makes sure everyone behaves.V 9 Comments
Two 7 year olds in my school bus wont stop EATING!
In my bus you're allowed to use phones and computers and play music but you are not allowed to eat/drink unless its water - Lunala
What would happen if the bus made a sharp turn? The food would fly everywhere!
Once my friend's sister got to eat on the bus because she was running late. - Spirtfall
Why won't they shut up. It is pure torture.
The other things in this list are annoying but not too irritating, now THIS... This is the worst... OBNOXIOUS PEOPLE... in the morning I go on the bus that is usually crowded, its terrible, there's always a kid who screaming for no reason, there's stupid conversations, kids who smell like crap, the list goes on. Luckily I go on a different bus that's completely the opposite when I go home (oh the irony). once when I went home we combines buses and now I went home exhausted with people screaming in my ear, and barely any space to even move on the seats. sorry for long comment
The big kids were hollering in my stinking ear I wish I could swear but I can't. My cousin got a headache. I asked to never go on that bus again and still no.
They wont just shut their trap.V 11 Comments
This doesn't even belong in here.
Actually, yes : My bus driver puts the radio on at the same channel all the time (92.5) and everyday I have to hear Justin Bieber songs. - MaxPap
I know right
I'm In Arizona. The air conditioning barely works. Now add 110 degree heat in an enclosed space. 70 degrees? You're lucky.
That's RIGHT TRAFFIC SUCKS! First of all every time, every time I GO ON MY BUS, traffic happens.
I HATE TRAFFIC! Except in the car because its not that noisy.
I'm like move batch get out the way
I don't mind traffic lol
More like being the kid no one wants to sit with AND gets made fun of and ignored when you try to talk.
Well that's the opposite of what's happening to me. I'm the popular guy in the school but unlike some, I'm actually really nice and friendly and don't mind helping you - AlphaQ
I'm not exactly the kid no one likes to sit with but everyone on my bus in my grade has their own friends they sit with so I'm stuck all alone. It really sucks. - Spiritfall
I always sit alone and I want to.V 4 Comments
There are no seatbelts on buses because that would mean you would have to have every single child of all ages be able to in-belt themselves should something happen. Buses have something called "compartmentalization" it has been studied extensively and is why the seats are placed where they are and are also why the backs are as tall as they are. If something were to happen to the bus, the driver is the one that needs to get those kids off. The drive can not get 72 seatbelts unbuckled in the time it could take something seriously horrible to happen to the bus. That is why there are no seatbelts on buses. Cars are completely different. They are built differently, they do not have the same structure, that is why you need seat belts in cars. - cjstar24
School buses should have seat belts, I know it would cost money but imagine what would happen in the event of a rollover.
My bus driver doesn't even ware his seat belt endless we are on base. We need seat belts. My old one once crashed no one was hurt though.
When I was in elementary school my buses had seatbelts but only the special ed kids used themV 6 Comments
Or even the teachers or principal
Most bus drivers are overweight and single.
Ugh so many farting boys. Including my bus driver ugh.!
Nobody to talk to
I flucking hate my bus driver he is a smelly lazy bum. And I have nobody to talk to, just so you know m, his name is tom he works mid island taxi
In high school I had to ride a bus with other special ed kids and they were not allowed to get off the bus alone, even if the bus was late to the school.
Today, when I got off the bus, it was already form time!
Just the other day my bus driver came at 8:26 am and the bus is suppose to come at 7:47 she's always late and makes us late and my afternoon bus driver is suppose to be at the school at 3:10 he doesn't arrive until 3:30 and after
I was in the back one time and some 1st grader yelled "I WANT THIS SEAT! MOVE! " I told him to shut up and he punch me so I did my natural instincts and punched him straight in the nose. He started to cry and turns out I broke his nose. I got in big trouble and the kid got off scott free. Seriously. He even yelled so loud people in other cars could hear and they looked at the bus! Anyways I was the one who got in trouble, and I saw the kid smile when I got in trouble and I had to sit in the front for 2 whole years! That kid got to sit wherever he wanted! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Some ass wouldn't let me get in the back with my friends and he actually CARRIED me up to the front seat with the annoying little kids and the bus driver just thanked that kid! That older kid was rewarded! That's why I hate people
Once me and 2 other people in my grade had to kick some 4th graders out because they were sitting way back to the 11th seat. (my bus has everyone sit by grade level) I didn't want to kick them out, but the kids were sitting way too far back. - Spirtfall
If you didn't punch him you wouldn't be in such tragic trouble.It's funny that on this website,it talks about people hating the bus then why not stop going on it.#COMMONSENSEV 7 Comments
We have trolleys in my neighborhood and in order to get to the high school the bus had to cross the tracks
My bus driver took a short cut and we took longer than what it would have if we waited
You have to be quiet. Um hello trains are loud and you can still see. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL
Only when it's your bus, it's retarded.
Ugh literally no one I knew but two jerks in on of my classes was on my bus. I ended up making myself get to the bus super early at the end of the school day so that I could just find an empty seat.
Not being able to find a seat and having to sit with some random person. Sucks
What the hell is wrong with those people, why won't they stop it. It's pure torture!
It's their taste of music. Everyone doesn't have to listen to rock. Go away if you're one of those crazy fans - JaysTop10List
In my bus, it's either broken radio or at best, just ads about dentists and economy. Boring. - Lunala
A kid on my bus listens to music that no one likes like old Justin beiber Nicki minaj - Ihateschool

Sometimes (rarely) these guys are good. Here's my story. So one day my bus came kind of late (on a very rainy day). When it came, I got on. There was a sub. I was like "Ooh, sub! " The sub just started turning and stuff everywhere, taking us to where we weren't supposed to, and going to various stops late. Most of us figured out we could get this guy away from the school, and it worked. We were laughing our butts off until the bus came to a big street thing. If he turned left, it would go toward the school. If he turned right, it would get us away from it. But he turned left, getting us closer to the school. We tried to get him to turn back, but he found out the way to the school thanks to this other guy's GPS (he wasn't a kid, he was a bus monitor guy or something). We almost got to miss school, but good things never last forever.
One time I had a sub and he made a little girl cry because he missed her stop and kicked her off and sad she had to walk home he went the completely wrong route and made fun of one kid, sub bus drivers are the devils son
Once a sub missed my stop. Me and my brother were screaming at him, and he yelled at us because he couldn't hear us. Over the racket on that bus. Thank god I only have to go on that bus after school (Grandmas) and when I turn twelve we get off
Once in middle or high school I was standing outside my house and they had a sub driver who DROVE PAST MY HOUSE EVEN THOUGH HE OR SHE SAW ME STANDING THEREV 4 Comments
Especially when it's raining outside
Well, before we I talk about the main topic, here's my short story about the bus. In California it took two hours to come home. Everyday. And also there's stupid annoying kids ruin it. Vancouver, Washington. Well things get a little better. Not really. There's a bus that would take me home in 5 minutes but the stupid school doesn't let me. Instead they make me go on a bus that takes 20 minutes to go home. And now to the story. Every morning on the bus 95% of the time I have to sit by someone with a large instrument sitting on my lap. What a fun miserable start to my morning. After school only gets worse. My science teacher makes everyone put their backpacks in their locker. I have to grab my instrument. And the bus is the second in line all the way across the school. Oh and I have 5 minutes to get there. Recipie for dissaster?
It is the worst
Vote for this
I personally carry a saxophone to school every day and I understand that sitting ext to someone with it would be a D*** move so I have my own seat
My cousin made me switched and hurt me and I scream but the bus monitor moved me instead of her. I was like so mad she was the one who could've move!
When kids got in trouble the bus driver makes them sit up front
It was not that bad
True once it was blowing snow with freezing cold wind and my face was freezing couldn't even look to see where it comes because it was so cold
Whenever it was raining, or when it wasn't sunny or just cloudy, my bus was always late. I hated that - 906389
True on the 1st day about 2 weeks ago I had to wait for a late bus and it was raining hard
You forgot snowing... She only comes early on good days but really late or never come
A while ago, someone told me I was sitting in the "buttcrack seat". They said some kid pulled his pants down and rubbed his butt all over the seat. I don't know if it was true.. But we have different buses anyways now, though. - Spirtfall
One time my seat had cuss words all over it, plus graffiti.
I had to sit on a seat where someone once couldn't hold his and literally lost it and took a ginormous crap in the seat I had to sit in. There's still stains on the seat cause my school is too cheap to throw away that seat cover - SirSkeletorThe3rd

On my bus there is this kid. I was on my phone, and he starts saying to me,"TAKE A VIDEO OF ME! " And I'm like no. So, he then takes my phone right out of my hands, and starts taking videos. I say,"GIVE ME MY PHONE BACK! " He did. Once he got off, he told his mother that I TOOK THE VIDEOS. NOT HIM! The next day, it was a normal day until after lunch. I was walking to my class, and when I got in, the announcement thing says,"can I please have Ava to the office? " (Ava is my name by the way) I then walk down and the principle says,"So. We need to talk about something that happened on the bus yesterday." And then I was terrified. The principle says,"Paul said you were taking videos on the bus! " And I said,"no! Paul took my phone and started taking videos! I can show you them! " And I show him the videos and he was like,"No. You could have taken those.i am going to be giving you assigned seats for the rest of the year! " I had to sit in the front of the bus.
