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

    Dear community,

    today is my last day here at TML. After almost two years, I want to say goodbye.

    It was a good and sometimes surprisingly turbulent time with you guys, thank you very much for that!

    In case we don't read each other anymore: All the best for you, stay as you are and don't lose the fun with the simulators

    Goodbye and stay healthy!

    Here is the teased bus from yesterday again in a larger format ;)

    It is of course the MAN Lion's City double-decker, which will be added to The Bus in phase two. You can also see part of the new Line 200, which is also being built.

    It is actually quite nice, there are always a lot of things happening under this dome, like outdoor cinema in the summer months (in real life, not in the game)

    The players will also be able to walk around there and see the building for themselves.

    *Edited for clarification*

    The Hotfix for Update 28 has finally been officially released. Amongst other things, various crashes have been fixed, the wobbling buses no longer wobble and the performance has been optimized.

    You can see the full changelog in the main article.

    Where is that?

    Those familiar with The Bus will of course recognize two of the pictures without any problems. But where are the other two? We are currently working at full speed on new routes and decorating the terrain so that you can soon explore new areas of The Bus.

    We're starting a new BETA for The Bus! Update 1.3. BETA has just been activated. Various problems have been fixed, the passenger behavior has been revised, pedestrians can finally cross the street and further corrections have been made to the minimap, bug reporter and others.

    You can find the full changelog here:


    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:

    1. In your Library, you click with the right mouse button on the entry of the "The Bus"
    2. In the drop-menu, you click on the entry "Properties"
    3. In the window "The Bus - Properties" you select the tab "BETAS"
    4. In the field "Select the beta you would like to opt into:" select the entry "beta-beta"
    5. Now you can close the window and the beta version of the update should download right away
    6. After downloading the update you can start The Bus via the "PLAY" button
    7. In the main menu should now be the corresponding version number of the beta version of the update and you can test the update
