"into which the students get in"? This is extremely redundant. Either the "in" needs to be removed, or the "into" needs to be removed and the "in" changed to "into". The former ("into which the students get") sounds really, really unnatural, so I'd stick with the latter ("which the students get into")

But "into which the students get in" does not seem right to me...

Why not accept "are getting into"?

Lol. My suggested translation is "into which the students get in" but there is no "in" in the word bank.

And why even in/into? I thought buses need onto like in English?
Azoknál a buszoknál állnak a sofőrök, amelyekbe beszállnak a diákok.
Azoknál a buszoknál állnak a sofőrök, amelyekre felszállnak a diákok.???

"Into which the students are getting" was really very much wrong?

What about "which the students are boarding"?

Claire Lanc 3- "Into which the students are getting". This is grammatically spot on and probably the purest translation. It is a little formal for spoken English but if you were to speak like that you would be fine. This is an uncomfortable construction for English. You would probably say this most naturally as "The students are boarding the buses which the drivers are standing beside." The Hungarian construction doesn't translate well directly into English - it tends to sound very stilted - but it would be clearly understood.
