Bus Simulator 18 is ready to depart!



Today we are happy to announce the official release of Bus Simulator 18. The gripping bus simulation game is now available here on Steam!

To celebrate the release we have prepared a special launch offer for at least the release week including a 10% discount as well as a bonus interior for the Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses for you.

Bus drivers who would like to try their luck with creating their own bus models, new maps, cities and other equipment will be happy to see the simultaneous release of the Bus Simulator 18: Modding Kit, which will be available free of charge for owners of the main game at the Steam Workshop!

The Unreal® Engine 4 based modding kit will give modders the opportunity to create not only their own buses, decals, adverts and wraps but also completely new maps and cities. The finished mods can then be included in the Steam Workshop, where other players will be able to download and add them to their own game.

Important note: Bus destination sign errors

Dear community,

In the current version of Bus Simulator 18, bus destination signs only support Latin letters. Umlauts and other special characters can’t be used or aren’t displayed correctly.

If you play the game in a language other than German or English and discover strange strings in your bus destination signs, as a work-around you can rename the destination in the game’s route planner– but make sure to use Latin characters only!

We're hard at work trying to create a more satisfying solution.

About This Game


Whether in the industrial or harbour zone, downtown, in the surrounding villages or the business park, in Bus Simulator 18, you experience up-close the exciting everyday life of a bus driver in a vast and freely drivable urban area. Get behind the wheel of your 8 original licensed city buses from the great brands of Mercedes-Benz, Setra, MAN, and IVECO and transport your passengers safely and punctually to their destinations, either solo in single player mode, or with friends in real-time multiplayer mode.

As a bus driver in the 12 different districts, you’ll face the challenges of the traffic in a big city and everything that entails. Don’t be deterred by freak weather conditions, potholes, traffic jams, fare evaders, accidents, construction sites, night driving and specific passenger requests. On the contrary, take full control of your bus, earn money, gain a good reputation owing to your safe and punctual driving style and enjoy almost limitless driving pleasure in the authentic urban locations. Use the thousands of miles of virtual roads and streets to gain new districts, new buses and new customisation options.



With the extensive modding support of Bus Simulator 18 there are no limits: create routes, build your own buses, create bus liveries, design new maps and share them with the community, or download and install the modding content available from the Steam Workshop to enhance your game experience.

But drive carefully with the buses you build! Don’t cause any damage or accidents and watch out for the speed cameras located around the city, or it could have a negative effect on your reputation, not to mention your wallet.

So, what are you waiting for? Your shift has already started!
