About Bus Driver
In Bus Driver, your job is to transport passengers around an attractive and realistic city. You must drive to a timetable on a planned route, while obeying traffic rules, and taking care not to upset or injure your passengers. This makes Bus Driver unlike any other driving game - the experience of driving a bus is very different from blazing through a racing circuit.

° 30 routes arranged into 5 tiers with increasing difficulty
° Multiple duties, such as driving a school bus, transporting tourists, sight-seeing tours and even the transportation of prisoners
° High replay value based on sophisticated system of traffic rules and game-play related bonuses.
