As a bus passenger, do I have special legal protections?

Yes. A bus company is a common carrier. This means it has a higher duty of care to provide a safe environment for its passengers. This is more than the standard duty of care that private vehicle operators have to other drivers and pedestrians. For example, if a bus company gets in an accident that is only slightly the reason for your injuries, the company may need to pay for the full cost of those injuries.
