A Ballarat bus driver jailed after injuring six people when he crashed into a notorious Melbourne bridge made a mistake but should be freed from jail, his lawyer says.

Jack Aston's driving had serious ramifications for his passengers, himself and his family but it doesn't make him a criminal and he doesn't deserve to be in jail, Catherine Boston said in his court appeal today.

She said Aston hadn't used drugs, wasn't drunk, speeding or using a phone, was properly licensed and well-rested when the crash occurred in February 2016.

Ms Boston said neither she nor prosecutors could find any case like it.

Aston, 55, was sentenced late last year to five years and three months in prison with a non-parole period of two years and six months.

Six of the 14 passengers on board the bus were seriously injured in the crash, while Aston suffered a broken neck.
