    The reason that I was late is I missed the bus.

    Yes.
    "The reason [that] I was late is [that] I missed the bus." Both are optional, so there's 4 possible choices of sentence.

    Re: The reason that I was late is I missed the bus.

    Unless this is some kind of exercise where your sentence has to start with "The reason ...", you could make life a lot simpler for yourself by saying "I was late because I missed the bus".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
