Well next time you see him, hit him with a brick! He should have paid you instead of hiding away!
He was a man about it though. Didn't hide, took the blame and owned it. If it was a sincere apology accept it. That shit happens all the time but most people usually run from it or assign blame elsewhere.
It probably wasn't a hit and run. If it was, why would he own up to it now? Maybe OP was no where to be found and didn't find out what happened until later. But the bus driver still contacted the correct authorities and turned everything in. You assume too much from a three-sentence FML. :P
This FML deserves a followup. OP could have recognized the bus driver. It's common to come across the people who do you wrong and notice they guiltily shy away from you. It's not that you don't recognize them, but you do take notice of how they act waiting for them to make amends and at least apologize. The bus driver did at least take some accountability and apologized. It won't immediately fix OP's car, but at least it's a step in the right direction.
When you're in a crash the right thing to do is take responsibility and pay for it, I would have called the police
Shouldn't you have spoken to the bus driver after they hit your car, or were you not in the car when it was hit? Surely you would've recognised them if so. I hope your insurance is covering it for you.
