Tourist Bus Simulator features
By bus across Fuerteventura: 20 accurately recreated cities and beaches, as well as mountain passes, impressive sights and three ports await the bus drivers and their passengers. Hiding places and other unusual locations are there for players to discover.
Large vehicle selection: Behind the wheel of the MAN Lion's Coach and Lion's Coach C, players explore the Canary Island. Several thematically matching bus designs are available for the respective tasks. There is also an off-road and service vehicle.
Passengers and bus drivers on the road: At the individual stops, players have to pay special attention to the passengers getting on and off the bus. Between tours, the bus riders can get off the buses and walk around in the environment.
A versatile service – Only the best for passengers: Players offer their passengers a comfortable hotel shuttle service, taking them from the airport to the hotel and back. Scheduled trips transport tourists all over the island, while sightseeing tours allow them to visit the most interesting locations following a self-created route.
Extensive fleet management: From the purchase of new buses to stable WLAN connections and insurance policies – there is a lot to consider in a bus empire. Regular care and maintenance of vehicles is just as important as refueling buses for upcoming tours or a well-stocked parts store. Repairs and services can be done either in the company's own workshop or in an external one. To provide more space for additional vehicles, the depot is expanded as needed. After long tours across the island, the vehicles are cleaned in the bus wash. To be protected in cases of emergency, players can also buy insurance for their company.
Employee management: New drivers, tour guides and mechanics have to be recruited for the steadily growing bus empire. At the same time, players assist their staff in finding apartments and look around for fitness centers and other free-time activities. Food and beverages are also important.
Buying houses: Players invest their earnings in apartments or even villas that can be furnished. Step by step, they achieve a higher standard of living in this way.
From beginner to professional bus driver: By performing well on the road, players gain more and more experience and level up.
