Assuming that the scene is set at night, the ambient light will be coming from outside the bus, so the source and the effect of the shadows thrown by the bus itself into the interior will be different to those of the interior lights. The colour temperature may also be different. I'd use two different lighting set ups, one for the ambient light outside and one for the interior then do a lighting change when the lights go out.

Doing it in post will look fake, since the source of the lighting won't have changed, just dimmed. Either that or you'll need to do a lot of work creating the illusion.

Regarding the electrical short effect, on a short film we used an electrical welding arc to create a to create a flash lighting effect. It worked pretty well, just ensure no one directly looks at the arc and someone qualified is operating the arc welder.

I'd suggest throwing light in from the outside of the bus. Perhaps a 2k flood to mimic outside conditions? On the inside perhaps a couple of well placed, diffused 150watters behind the seats to provide a ambient light with an untraceable source.

Given your space limitations, hiding small lights within the bus may be the way to go. Much depends on the resources you have available and the nature of the shots that are planned. Bear in mind that window glass can reflect your lights, so this can involve making adjustments to hide these reflections. Having the external light will give a base line, although you can also use external lights to give the impression of other vehicles headlights.
