Ms Langdon said her daughter fell asleep on the school bus on the way home and was left inside when the driver parked and disembarked the Logan Coaches vehicle at an unknown location.

The girl's mother, Bobbie Langdon, took to social media regarding the incident, saying that the child failed to come home from Jimboomba State School on Monday.

While Alyssa was trapped in the bus, temperatures reached 29degC in Brisbane.

A Queensland mother is threatening legal action after her five-year-old daughter was left alone and trapped on her school bus for several hours.

'Please parents, time is precious, every parent in the country, please hug your handsome children tonight and appreciate everything, ' she said.

White said the police had carried out a wide-ranging search for the girl.

"As an industry, we take our responsibilities very seriously, and nothing is more important than the safety of our children", Mr Tape said in a statement.

"It appears that the driver did not do the end of run sweep as drivers are supposed to with those bus companies", Palaszczuk told reporters.

"I think this is a wake-up call to the bus companies to ensure that they do check their buses".

Ms Langdon said Alyssa caught the bus every day when she was in prep past year but that she would not be returning to the school.

"I wasn't too alarmed until probably about 4:30pm, when no one had seen her ... when it started to get to the 6:30 mark, I was losing the plot", she said.

"I hope that bus company will do a review about what happened, and ensure that it definitely doesn't happen again", she said.

As well, the education minister, Grace Grace, and the transport minister, Mark Bailey, will talk to the company.

A spokesman for Logan Coaches said the company is investigating the incident.

Ms Langdon has warned the company to expect a letter from her lawyer.
