split the surface containing the windows, with the blue surfaces (windows)

hmm, and I assume your bus hasn't any thickness (you only have a surface between the volume inside the bus, and outside).
ok, you can do followings:
*go back to beginning
*delete the bus volume, but keep the outer surface
*create the window surfaces
*split window surfaces from bus-outer surface
*Create your computation domain, and split it with all the surfaces (outer surface + windows)
You can Mesh your model.
YOu only have to pay attention, while defining your BC.
You must define the outer surface (of the bus) as wall, the windows should be exported as Interior per default
