What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The genre of simulators opens a huge number of opportunities for developers. Simulators enable us to reconstruct what we see in real life. We are a small indie studio and what we can do is by far limited. We'd like to share what we have already done, as well as our views concerning the implementation of the project.
We need the support of the players in order to get quick feedback about every innovation in the game, as well as opinions as to what to add and what to work on next. Early access allows us to shape the game according to the expectations of the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in early access until it is a finished product that meets the needs of the majority of the players in the target audience. According to our estimates, this will take from six months to one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to add a free ride mode around the city. It will enable the player to choose which route to take. The money earned can be spent on the purchase of new buses, as well as on the improvements available.
We plan to expand the existing map, meanwhile modeling the quarters in accordance with the location of the houses, roads and objects as in real life.
In addition to the existing map, we would like to add at least one more. We plan to add a European city, because architecture, as well as roads in Russia (on the existing map) and in Europe are different. We would also like to add some suburban routes.
Of course, new buses need to be added. We want people from different countries to ride the buses they see in real life.
This is only a small part of our plans – we will talk about others in the process of updating the version of the game in early access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“So far only three buses and nearly ten scenarios are available.
Traffic, passenger traffic and traffic violations are implemented.
Our special pride is a modeled real city.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to raise the price of the game with a full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will conduct surveys from time to time to find out what innovations are expected most of all by players. This applies not only to the gameplay, but also to the content – the addition of buses, cars and routes.
In addition to adding a new one, active work with the community will allow us to quickly adjust the existing functionality.”

About This Game

Try yourself in a role of a passenger bus driver!

Complete journeys around the city and its suburbs, strictly following the schedule. Earn money by successfully delivering passengers and following the traffic laws. Complete various scenarios with pre-set conditions or build your own career in Free Mode.

Action takes place in the real city.

We took photos of the big part of the city and its suburbs to recreate buildings and streets as close to real city objects as possible. Virtual city is recreated very accurate, in every detail. Buildings, bus stops and other objects are situated exactly on their places.

Play as you want! You have freedom of choice.

Choose routes at your look to drive around city districts that you are interested in. It does not matter whether you like high-speed passenger transportation or slow and relaxed driving. If you do not like pre-set schedule, you can customize it for your style of gaming. Earn money, buy new buses and upgrade them. Decorate your bus as you want. You will definitely like various decorations for each bus.

Car park for any taste.

You have unique chance to drive buses from different eras and countries. You can drive both old Soviet city buses and European long-distance giants.

Life of the driver – not only on the road.

Do not forget to occasionally refill your bus so you do not have to call the tow truck. Be prepared to spend a lot of your time in one of four garages where you can upgrade your buses and take a rest.

Dynamic time of day change.

We have implemented realistic traffic in our game. Also, passenger traffic is simulated depending on the day time. Deliver people to their work in the morning when there are traffic jams, in afternoon, when there are less passengers and cars, and in the evening, when there are almost no one on the streets and lamp posts are illuminating the roads.

Widen your game experience.

Driving is realistic like never before! Connect you VR set, steering wheel and pedals for the best gaming experience.

• There are seven high-detailed buses from different countries and eras. New buses are regularly being added.
• Recreated city and its suburbs area of 12 km2
