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


    We’re aware of reports of the game freezing, if you could provide the following information, it would help us immensely:

    Where did it happen?

    When did it happen?

    What was you doing when it happened? (Please be specific, don’t just say “I was driving” etc…)

    P.S: If we can’t fix it before the update releases, we’ll issue a hot-fix to solve it.

    Kind Regards.

    Hello, we understand that it takes time to develop a game like The Bus. However, a video shows us the Man DD. The audio sound is not really great, I find and also the audio sound of the Scania. .there is plenty to do, adding real-time information on bus stops, tram and IA bus .... TML does a very good job ....:)

    We have already said the there will not be anymore major features until phase 2, the AI trams is in backlog, not a priority, the AI buses will be in phase 2, and the real-time information is also now in backlog because the person who was supposed to do that has now left TML studios, please don’t become impatient, we’re working flat out on updates etc….

    Kind Regards.

    Have you reset your profile, they wouldn't just lock on their own, they would only do that if you've reset your profile and moved your home city, unfortunately, we currently don't have a way of doing a 100% unlocked profile for Fernbus like we do for Tourist Bus, if you want to drive with all the cities immediately unlocked, you can choose "Freeplay", in "Fernbus" or "Shuttle" mode, you have to unlock the cities by starting with one unlocked "home" city, then progressively unlock more by driving to them.

    I will forward the possibility of a 100% unlocked profile, we know that some people just want to drive to cities without having to unlock them first, as it's time consuming.

    Also, please refrain from opening unnecessary threads, a more appropriate thread is this one: Fernbus Update 28: Released

    I am closing this thread now.

    Kind Regards.

    Hi Smallhorse,

    adding real time AI Traffic density would be a undertaking, and the game would have to adjust traffic on the go, it will require things to be added which we can't tackle right now, maybe later.

    The Person who was supposed to do that no longer works at TML and it hasn't been done by another person yet, hopefully it will come at some point :)

    Kind Regards.

    Update 1.8 of the Early Access of The Bus is now available as BETA for testing.

    Several changes and fixes are awaiting you, amongst other things the Unreal engine 4.27 has been added, and some new construction vehicles are now in the AI traffic.

    For the full detailed list of changes, please, see the changelog below.


    Please create backup copies of your savegame files before switching to the EA BETA Update. Savegames may not be compatible with the new version of the game.


    ATTENTION: This is a BETA update. Technical problems, instability of the game as well as bugs during gameplay can be possible.

    How to install the beta version of the update?

    Quite easily:

    In your Library, you click with the right mouse button on the entry of the "The Bus"

    In the drop-menu, you click on the entry "Properties"

    In the window "The Bus - Properties" you select the tab "BETAS"

    In the field "Select the beta you would like to opt into:" select the entry "beta-beta"

    Now you can close the window and the beta version of the update should download right away

    After downloading the update you can start The Bus via the "PLAY" button

    In the main menu should now be the corresponding version number of the beta version of the update and you can test the update

    Hey, I would expect some features like the standing passengers in the bus(I saw it is already in Backblog, but not planned), the working "Zeitanzeige an den Haltstellen" and NPCs that ride bikes in the bike zone on the street. And I'm also looking forward to the feature "real-time traffic". Then we don't have to set traffic flow always by ourselves.


    Everything in the backlog is planned, just not decided when it will happen, NPCs won’t be able to ride bicycles, too complex to implement and could you please explain “real time traffic” there’s no such feature and what your describing makes no sense.

    Kind Regards.

    I keep getting an issue where Fernbus crashes every time I try and change anything in the settings. This makes it unplayable as the traffic gridlocks immediately. I have opened support tickets about this issue but they are closed out of the blue without any solution which I find rather unprofessional. I am unable to do anything with Fernbus with the options menu constantly crashing. How can I get this to work?


    could you please provide a crash log for the issue? they can be found at the following:- C://users/yourusernamehere/appdata/local/fernbus/saved/crashes.

    Please zip the file using software like winrar and kindly provide for us to look at.

    as for the traffic issue, we're aware of it, definitely needs fixing, hopefully we can get it done soon™

    one more thing, in future, could you please refrain from opening unnecessary threads, a more appropriate one is this: Update 28 - Officially Released, after you've replied I will closed this thread.

    Kind Regards.

    I am locking this thread now as people are failing to stick to the topic, we said that we cannot update TBS until the console port was released, we only added this minor change to update the compatibility with the new 12th Intel CPUs as they was causing crashes.

    This thread will stay locked now, and will remain locked until update 10 beta is released.
