At the top-left of the controls is the name of the bus, which can be edited by double-clicking on it. The new name must be unique within the session. Underneath the name is a copy of the bus' main level fader. The control buttons to the right-hand side are:

Mute—click to mute the bus. Right-click to display a menu which dictates what particular parts of the bus should be muted.
Solo—solo the bus. The behaviour of the solo system is described in detail in the section Muting and Soloing.
Automation—opens the automation menu for the bus. For details see Automation.
Group—lets you assign the bus to an existing or a new group. For details see Track and bus groups.
