Subjunctive = Indicative (er verbs) Ist/ 2nd and 3rd person Singular

The question is translate "You are waiting for the bus to arrive" The answer given is "Vous attendez que le bus arrive", Maybe better to change the question to '"You are waiting for the bus to LEAVE" which gives "Vous attendez que le bus parte (subjunctive). Here the verb is different from the indicative (le bus part)
