    OR
    None - buses have wheels, not legs

    Hard to say really. Usually it would be "there is a bus travelling to..." and that would insinuate a driver. As it stand it could just be a bus parked up somewhere. . These type of riddles start off properly but tend to get distorted over time :/

    I think it's possible the OP got the question wrong though, as I've heard this riddle before, and it's always be "on the bus" and the answer has always been what DizzyBlonde said.

    Otherwise it's not a riddle, it's just arithmetic.

    The kittens is the throw off.:rolleyes:
    Inside each bag there is 7 cats...Every cat has 7 kittens - Useless information as there is still only 7 bags with 7 cats per girl. (The kittens are still cats too - only not on the bus)
    49 Cats * 7 Girls = > 343 Cats * 4 legs => 1372 Cat legs +14 Girls legs = 1386 legs total.
