Welcome to the new TML-Studios Community! Please read through the Community Rules and Guidelines and Tips & Tricks. Have fun!


    Update 1.6 in the Early Access of The Bus upgrades the game to Unreal Engine 4.26 and mainly focuses on fixing a lot of bugs and crashes and adds quality life changes to existing features.


    We’re very glad to announce The Bus will become available for Nvidia’s GeForce Now in October. With GeForce Now, you will be able to stream The Bus on your PC or any Android mobile device. So, you may actually play The Bus while sitting in a real city bus. How cool is that?!


    Following you will find a detailed list with all the changes.

    I heard that the city is planning to turn it into a recreational area with a shopping centre but it might still take years until the city of Berlin would realise this. Also, the city is always lacking money and they change their mind all the time. Just look at the disaster of the planning and construction of the new airport.

    Yes, we're in the process of completing phase 1 of the Early Access of The Bus as everyone can clearly see on the roadmap on Trello. However, we're going to smoothly transition from one phase into the other. So, expect some features from phase 2, like the MAN Lion's City DD and line 200, to arrive earlier before phase 1 is 100% completed.
