Bus Simulator 18 in a nutshell
Bus Simulator 18, developed by astragon Entertainment, is another entry in the simulator series that focuses on driving buses. Your goal is to develop a bus company - you have to buy new vehicles, get new employees and create new routes. The game doesn't focus only on driving a bus, it also requires you to interact with passengers. You have to sell tickets, control passengers, keep order and most importantly - you have to arrive at each bus stop on time.
Starting the game
Right after starting the game asks you to name your company, choose difficulty level and decide if your company can go bankrupt or not. After that you can create your character. You can choose your gender, uniform and its color. The number of the uniforms is limited to two - they only differ in the pattern. As for the colors, you have 16 for clothes and 10 for hair.
Bus Simulator 18 allows you to play the tutorial. During it you will drive a bus with an instructor as your passenger. The goal is to reach a few bus stops. This is a very helpful mode - you can learn how to move around the city, how to sell and check tickets. After completing the tutorial, you will receive your first mission. It won't be complicated but thanks to it you will learn how to start developing your company.
You also get about 150,000 Euro which is enough for painting your own bus, purchasing a new one and hiring a new driver. This can help you develop your company even faster.
In Bus Simulator 18 there are a lot of small things that you have to keep in mind. We have gathered them in one place and created a list of tips that should help you with starting your own business and securing your company from going bankrupt.
Watch out for potholes - the roads in Bus Simulator 18 aren't well-maintained - avoid them if you don't want to lose points. Hitting a pothole is counted as a crash which costs you points. This in turn can result in a fine.
Keep an eye on the doors - remember that closing and opening the doors is one of your most important duties. Your bus won't move if the doors aren't closed. After reaching a bus stop wait with closing the doors for about 10 seconds - you will be sure that none of the passengers want to leave the bus.
Don't trust other drivers - left turn-signal and a clear entry on a lane? In Bus Simulator 18 you can only dream about this. Usually, other drivers only pretend that they want to let you go first - after that they will hit you with full force in the rear of your bus.
Remember to pause the game when you have to move away from your computer - leaving the game running can cost you a huge delay which can cost you a lot of money.
