I'm with Flora. The kid has a collection of adults who know her and watch out for her on the city bus. On a school bus you usually have only the driver, who is not invested in any one kid, and is too busy driving to attend to any but the most obvious and outrageous squabbles. As a kid I would have loved an opportunity to be on a city bus away from bullies on my way to and from school.

Just how many pervert kidnappers do folks imagine are out there, and how much safer do they think keeping a kid off the bus will make him or her compared to the cruelty youngsters inflict on one another?
