The casualty was at the wheel of a black VW Polo when it collided with the double decker on the A290 between Canterbury and Whitstable a week ago.
An air ambulance was called to the scene at Pean Hill following the accident at about 10.15pm.
The woman suffered injuries to her head, chest, stomach, arm and leg.
She was treated at the scene before being taken by road to London’s Kings College Hospital, where she remains.
The bus driver, a man from Herne Bay, was taken to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford with minor injuries.
A Stagecoach spokesman said, “We can confirm that a Triangle bus was involved in an incident with a car on the A290 Pean Hill.
“The bus was on its way to Canterbury at the time. Our first thoughts are with the driver of the car and her family.
“One of the passengers on the bus was attended to by paramedics as a precaution.
“Incidents of this nature are very rare and we’re working closely with the police investigation into what happened.”
The crash happened on Wednesday, November 8 and the road was shut off for more than six hours, finally reopening at 4.40am after serious crash officers had completed an investigation.
They are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have dashcam footage, to come forward.
Witnesses can call the appeal line on 01622 798538 or email email@example.com, quoting DW/253/17.
