    Are these sentences correct? Please help, thank you so much.

    1) I missed my stop so i decided to continue taking the bus untill it has completed a trip from start to end and then back to my stop. I have stop at all the bus stops along the bus route.

    2) I have requested the bus to stop at the wrong bus stop.

    If you use present perfect (has completed and have requested), it sounds like you are still on the bus right now.

    1) I missed my stop, so I decided to continue taking the bus until it completed its route, started again and got back to my stop. I had to stay on the bus while it stopped at every stop along the route.

    2) I requested to stop at the wrong (bus) stop. I requested that the bus stop at the wrong (bus) stop. I would probably say, "I pushed the button at the wrong time."
