Pick up passengers in Bus Simulator 16
Windows 10 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 8 / Windows 7
See what it's like to drive a bus on this simulated adventure.
Your goal in the game is to operate the bus in a safe manner while getting your passengers to their destinations. The graphics are highly detailed, giving you the impression that you're really behind the wheel of a bus. You can see the scenery in the cities you drive in and on the open roads. Weather conditions change and include sunshine, rain, and snow. You have to follow the laws of driving while you're completing challenges so that you don't wreck, lose time or get punished for unsafe driving. Views of the game include looking through the windshield with the controls right in front of you or viewing the bus on the road with the controls on a smaller scale at the bottom of the screen.
There are five different areas to drive around to take your passengers. As you become comfortable with how the bus moves on the road and how to stop and start the vehicle, you'll get faster at getting your passengers safely to their destinations. You'll also start to make more money. The money that you earn can be used to get advertisements for the sides of your bus and new details. You can also unlock new cities and new buses. The game requires a lot of attention to detail, but that's what makes it an active simulated experience. The controls for operating the bus can be a bit of a challenge, but there are hints and instructions about how to work with them. There are hazards that you might come across and obstacles that try to get in your way, such as road closures. A map is seen at the bottom of the screen to help in navigating through the city. Your goal is to assist passengers in getting on and off the bus and sell them the correct tickets that they need to get to their destination.
