Looking at it in slow motion I thing its similar to a lacrosse stick with a grenade (or C4 or whatever) in the sling. As he's running up to the bus
it appears that there is a small basket at the end and the actual explosion happens in the back of the bus.
Here's the slowed down version on youtube.
And yes - it's awesome!

Looks like a percussion explosive on a sling of some kind. If you notice as he approaches the bus the stick bends to add force to the contact.
Delivery man gets a star for not blowing himself up, I'll throw in an extra for the ninja roll out of the blast zone.

The bus is a pressurised container (or can be thought of as one) and the air inside is expelled with great force. The people outside are protected
because the air disperses the blast. This is why firing a rocket launcher/recoilless rifle indoors is deadly due to overpressure, but safe outdoors.
Also, the windows act like safety valves, releasing the pressure.
hope that helps.

The stick is probably a mechanism to deliver an explosive.
basically he walk up to the bus and uses the stick to smash in a window
and pushes a trigger on the stick that drops the explosive into the vehicle.
But I'm only guessing with this
