Update 1.20 - New Beta Version 1.20.24602

Along with some additional fixes we've found a solution for the crashes, which unfortunately took a lot of time.
Furthermore, we have updated the lighting system a bit and have already updated the traffic lights flow in the cities of Germany. Switzerland and Austria will be following soon.


So, after we've launched Tourist Bus Sim a while ago we can finally release the latest update as a beta version to Fernbus Sim.

Most notably in this update will be the optimized loading times and the new weather effects. And as requested, we've added a new mode to the mouse control. But we have been fixing a lot of bugs too which were bothering the community and us as developers a lot.

Detailed information can be found in the Changelog below.

By testing this update and sending us your feedback you can make sure this update will be released smoothly and eventually with additional fixes too.

For feedback please use our forums at

“What makes Fernbus a great simulation is the freedom to take any bus route you want. It’s possible to make one long push from the bottom of the country to the top, or have a bus route with 30 stops for one epic bus route. You can make Fernbus as easy or as hard as you like. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, you can try traveling in bad weather conditions.”

About This Game

The Fernbus Coach Simulator is the first simulation of the very popular intercity buses. Thanks to the cooperation with FlixBus the Fernbus Coach simulator shows the daily life of a coach driver on the German Autobahn, highways and in more than 40 cities in great detail.

With a large and modern MAN Lion’s Coach Bus you experience the daily life of a long distance coach driver. Navigate through a complex Autobahn and road network to bus stations in the more than 40 implemented cities and stay in constant communication with the headquarters.

Be careful with the other car traffic during your trips on partially full German highways and control your bus safely by day and night during all seasons.
About 20.000 km of the German route network of FlixBus and over 40 cities were simulated. Time passes at a scale of 1:10, so that the individual tours last not too long.

Like in reality at the bus stations passengers already holding a valid ticket can get on right away while the other passengers have to buy a ticket from you.

Both MAN busses are equipped with original cockpits including all functions. The interior and exterior of the bus is modeled to the last detail. True to original passenger announcements provide a realistic atmosphere. Construction sites, traffic jams and accidents will challenge you as a bus driver to keep up with the schedule. The busses were tested and optimized by bus drivers and driving instructors.
