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)

This question relates to:
French lesson "Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect"

Hi William,

This is a good point , as indeed, in the case of regular verbs ending in ER , most forms will ressemble those of the Present indicative. I will pass on your comments.
