In the U.S., the school bus is a specific bus (almost always bright yellow) that is provided by the school district and is ridden only by students.
In many college towns, part of your fee pays for "free" bus rides that you can take by showing your student ID. (I say "free" because you pay for it in other ways.)
Almost all cities with public transportation have various deals for different groups of people, often including students.
