Use these:

(A) The students are boarding the school bus.

(b) They are queuing (up) to board the bus.

(c) The pupils like to board the school bus.
Vincent TeoCan I say,(A) The students are boarding (up) the school bus. The "up" would not be used. "Boarding up" is what you do to an abandoned house after a hurricane has broken out all the windows.

(b) They are queuing (up) to board (up) the bus. Same as (A)

(c) is okay.

Regards, - A.

Can I say,
(a) The pupils queue (up) and board into the bus to go back home.
Hi Vincent,

Can I say,
(a) The pupils queue (up) and board into the bus to go back home.


No. You 'board a bus'. You don't 'board into a bus'.
