Several people made verbal threats and racial taunts against a group of women singing French songs travelling on the bus around 9.30pm on November 11.
The commuters were travelling between Mordialloc to Caulfield railway station when the incident occurred.
A woman, believed to be a victim in the incident, contacted police and made a formal report yesterday.

Yesterday, the French woman claimed she feared for her safety during the racist tirade.
The woman, identified as Fanny Desaintjores, says she was "afraid he [would come] and hit us", as police appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Fairfax reports Ms Desaintjores became fearful for her safety.
"My friends and I stopped laughing. We were quite afraid that he [would come] and hit us," she said.
"I think that's insane that they reacted like that, we're all adults. We could have a conversation and talk gently, instead of all these insults and threats."
