Detengase as a synonym?

Hi there, I tried this sentence: "El detengase de la autobus está cerca mi casa." But it was marked as incorrect, is detengase not a synonym?

Thanks!

Hola Ben,

I am afraid not, "deténgase" is not a noun meaning "the stop". This is the verb "detenerse" (to stop) conjugated in the imperative.
