Is there a difference in the meaning of halten and anhalten?

eg. Der Bus hält nur an, wenn man vorher auf dem Knopf gedrückt hat. versus

Hält der Bus vor dem Kino?
Stop? halten - anhalten

Yes, there is.
"halten" means "to hold", as in
Das Kind hält seinen Teddy im Arm - the child is holding his teddy bear in his arms.
"anhalten" means "to stop"
I hope that helps
Stop? halten - anhalten
