You stop if the employee is crossing the road or is visible to anyone in the bus. It's not public transport. The driver is not doing social service.

My company tried implementing the no waiting rule by instructing the bus drivers not to wait even a minute. For the whole week all 3 buses came empty to office. Most of the time employees were crossing the road or walking towards the stop and the driver saw but did not wait.

We came in lazily late and left early. when the admin guys realised that the plan did not work and working hours got reduced they went back to waiting for max of 2mins at each stop.

So they wait a max of 2 mins. What if someone comes 5 seconds after those 2 mins? Do they wait if they can see him/her crossing the road? If so, what happened to the 2 minute rule? If not, who draws the line at 2 mins?

No, they are not into social service. But then again, why are your colleagues not on time to the bus-stop? Do your clients also wait for them when they are late to a meeting, or with a deliverable?
