    Default They're in back of the bus.

    They're in back of the bus.
    Which does the above sentence mean: They're behind the bus or They're in the back of the bus?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Unless the definite article was left out by accident, the first meaning is more likely. That said, your restatement is better.
