Best practice: School bus planning?

Hi!
I need to deliver 300 students to their respective school. I have my geocoded points with the students home location, together with their target-school.
I have one bus depot and perhaps 5-6 buses with 40 seats capacity.
I need to fill up the buses and then deliver the students to their school.
A student can not ride longer than 40 minutes.

But when I try to solve this through VRP Paired orders my bus will pick up 2-3 students, then deliver them to the school and then return for an additional 2-3 students.

What am I missing?
Is there another method I should be using?
