Curfew for a 14-year old daughter! Please help!

What is a reasonable curfew for my 14-year old daughter? (She's turning 15 in a few months.) The curfew I set for her is around 5:00. She is constantly asking me to extend her curfew because she claims to not have enough time to hang out with her friends. She told me that she starts school at around 8:50 and ends around 3:50. She always takes the bus home and there is about a 25 minutes wait at the bus stop. When she gets on the bus, it takes about 30 minutes to get back to our house by bus and a 5 minutes walk from where she gets off to our house. What should I do? Should I extend her curfew time? If I should extend he curfew time, what time is reasonable for her?
