It's been a long time since I used max but I think I can help. It seems there may be a rpoblem with the hyarchy of your character.

The first thing you need to do is place everthing from your rigged character as a child under a single null. If you do this everything from your character should relate it's animatable paramaters to the axis of this null instead of to the world axis.

You then make that null a child of the bus.

Be shur than when your animating, you save your keys as Local cordinates and not global. This in itself could be your problem.

Agian, it's been a long time since I used max so I can't remember what there constraints / parent / child system is like but I hope that helps.
