At the beginning, after Stan hits the General Manager's car, and starts to pull away, the camera cuts to his cab, and he says "Alright!" There is a green bus visible in this scene. It is stopped, but then it is seen starting to move. This is the bus which hits Stan's bus. The number and destination match up.
