It'd be of the following way:


Get on the bus = +Subid al autobús

Keep your hands to yourself = +Mantened las manos quietas (I'm not sure, it depends of the interpretation)

Get in line = +Poneos en fila

Slow down = +Id más despacio

Raise your hand = +*Levantad las manos

+ You all (in Spanish there are diferences between one person and many persons).
*In Spanish isn't frequent to use the possesive with the body parts.

You would say it this way: (sounds more idiomatic)

"Keep your hands to yourself" means, Don't touch others, or Keep your hands from touching other people. It's usually said to children when they are poking , hitting or otherwise touching one another in inappropriate ways.

In Spanish the possessive isn't generally used with body parts.

Or you could say :
In Spanish we don't normally use possessives with body parts.
