Ever want to take control of a bus and maneuver around the city? Bus Simulator 2 gives you the opportunity to do just that. In Free play mode, you can drive the bus around while interacting with real people! Most games only let you interact with computer created people, but Bus Simulator 2 connects you to other players around the world. In Story mode, you are presented with numerous options to present maximum entertainment.
Choose between 12 different buses, from street bus to touring double-decker bus. Additionally, choose between many routes on how to drive. Even more, you can create your own routes, so the possibilities are limitless. When driving your own bus, you can access every single feature with just the click of the space button. Once clicked, you can start and stop, view the map, sell tickets, and even make announcements. Of course you must adhere to the regulatory rules of the road, such as stopping at red lights. However, you are allowed a little freedom to drive fast and literally take control of your bus and how you drive it.
The goal is to make money. To do this, you must be economical with your bus purchases and strategic with your route making. Driving recklessly can additionally decrease your total earnings. Also, unlike other driving simulators, you are the one and only boss, like a true business. You will never hire other people to drive your bus. If you decide to buy 6 buses, you will have to operate every single one by yourself. This is what gives the game a more realistic feel than many of the other simulators available for purchase.
Whether you choose to help every passenger by getting them to their stops or bypass their stops in order to get them mad, you will have a fun and realistic experience that will leave you addicted.

Rather than stretching into management like UK and German Truck Simulator have done recently, Bus Simulator 2 sticks strictly to keeping you solely in control of your buses. Never will you hire other drivers, or make money from lines being run by other buses. Instead all the money you make, you make by yourself, you can buy all 10 bus lines, and all 12 buses, but you will only be able to ride one at a time. This does make it slightly more difficult to save up the money to afford many of the routes and buses from the start, but means you will work twice as hard when you want that better kneeling bus, or the coach that will let you finish that last special tour. - GameCast
