Forget Farming Simulator's 'open island' farming, forget the unadulterated fun of Demolition Company, TML Studios have set the true benchmark of vehicular based simulators, and they've only gone and done in a true authentic open world setting; and no better than in the streets of San Francisco. So get ready to hit the streets of The City by the Bay in one of the most detailed and sophisticated bus simulators out there.
You begin your humble career with a simple diesel bus and all the ambitions in the world. A visit to the Exhibit Hall will present you with your overall goals; owning all of the unique unlockable vehicles, including the School Bus, Sightseeing Bus, Trolley Bus, Cable Car and Bendy Diesel Bus. Each vehicle isn't just a shiny new model to perform your bus route in; they all have their own unique bus routes across the city of San Francisco. To top it off, each new vehicle can be unlocked via two means; a lot of cash, or a couple of rewards.
Rewards are the game’s unique achievements system that can reward you with money, and allows you to unlock new vehicles without having to part with wads of cash. Rewards come both positively and negatively; positive rewards will get you vehicles, whereas negative rewards will hinder your chances. You can receive rewards from simple accomplishments like being extra friendly to your passengers, or seeing all of the sights in San Francisco, negative rewards will be branded onto you through bad driving, sloppy service, and leaving potential passengers behind.
The rewards system is a fantastic addition to Bus and Cable Car Simulator which makes it more of a game and less of a simulator, marrying the two in a strange deformed entity that is both a rewarding and satisfying way of progressing through the game, its also the most unique system of its kind; drowning in a sea of useless trophy achievements.
The most remarkable aspect of Bus and Cable Car Simulator is that it is an open world game of sorts; you are free to roam the city of San Francisco, use the public transport, drive to schedules across the city, and even have a nap in your apartment. Whilst this is an amazing step in simulators, it also has its limitations; much like the early 3D Grand Theft Auto games there is little interaction to be had in the city; however the mere possibilities are a fantastic step forward for the lowly regarded simulator genre.
Traffic on the streets of San Francisco is terrible, and with the amount of AI cars set high it’ll be almost impossible to keep to schedule with your bus duties. The AI is particularly good for a simulator, and cars will change lanes and actually look like they are headed somewhere. The same can be seen in the pedestrians that will cross roads, amble along the pavement, and step onto AI controlled buses. If your PC can handle it, all AI systems can be populated to the max for an almost living and breathing city. However if you wish for clear streets whilst you carry out your punctual routes, then you might just want to turn cars off.
The aspects that make Bus and Cable Car Simulator different to most sims is that there are just so many details and intricacies present that most would never even touch on. One of the most unique of them all is the fogged windows system, which will see your bus windows huff up as you drive around in the rain unless you turn your ventilation fans on. Then there’s the sound design which is all context sensitive depending on if you are inside or outside of a vehicle, and your distance, so if you like the pitter-patter of raining falling whilst you are inside a vehicle, zoom into cockpit view and you are in for a treat.
If you are striving for money over rewards then not only can you drive to schedules to earn your keep but there are also a number of extra jobs that you can perform on the side; including maintenance on broken down buses, replacing old timetables at bus stops, bringing fuel to another driver, and even taking over a service. Aside from spending your money on new vehicles and spare parts, there is a wealth of options to waste your money on including a vast array of sunglasses, a less run-down apartment, and new and exciting cars.
Unfortunately to those simulator fans that are hanging onto their old PC’s, Bus and Cable Car Simulator really needs a mid to high end PC to really appreciate it, and most importantly of all it needs a good Processor, I warn you now, if you attempt to play this game on a low end PC, you will be playing a mere shadow of the game that you could be playing.
What makes Bus and Cable Car Simulator even better than Grand Theft Auto, Bus Simulator 2 and any other open world game is that you can actually jump aboard an AI driven bus, and be driven around to schedule across TML’s constructed San Francisco. In fact you can even get a little sightseeing in whilst you’re at it, and visit Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, The Golden Gate Bridge, and the Transamerica Pyramid to name a few of the locations ingame.
Bus and Cable Car Simulator is not just a pretty face too; containing over 8 classes of vehicle, each of which has its own handling system which ensures that you won’t get the same experience from a Cable Car or a Diesel Bus. Not only do they handle different but each vehicle is also highly detailed with their own personal dashboards, buttons, working dials and lights to inform you exactly what your bus is doing whilst you are driving it. However, the real icing on the cake is found in your vehicle maintenance; most vehicles can suffer commonplace faults such as broken fan belts and blown fuses, to fix these you can either call in support from your headquarters, or fix it yourself, and we aren’t talking a couple of mouse clicks!
If you liked punching tickets in Bus Simulator 2, then you’re going to love the bus interaction required of Bus and Cable Car Simulator. Each passenger will board, say hello –if they’re in a good mood- you can say hello back, you then have to type the required money on the cash register for the fare that they owe. But it’s not that straightforward, because you’ve five different fare groups to remember across 3 different lines, and although you cannot alter your fares, there’s a lot of variation in the routes that you’ll be driving.
There's just so many other features that we haven't even hinted at, like the dynamic weather system that range's from a calm summers day, drizzle or gale-force winds to true torrential rain. Or the unique compressed air system that is as true as possible to the real-world counterparts. Then there's the realtime soiling on your bus, that will get your vehicle dirty over time; requiring a nip into the nearest car wash. Not to mention the factor that your avatar is not superman, and needs to sleep or you'll find yourself nodding off at the wheel. TML have taken so many small concepts into consideration, it is astounding.
Just like TML Studios’ last game; World of Subways London Underground, Bus and Cable Car Simulator San Francisco is a shining example of what they hold important in a simulator; graphics to excel that of most mid budget titles and the intricacy and detail to sustain even the most demanding of simulation fans. Once you've played Bus and Cable Car Simulator, you won't ever look at another second-rate sim in the same way.
If you like your simulators large in scope; practically endless and full of intricate details and obscurities that a true enthusiast will appreciate then Bus and Cable Car Simulator is going to knock your socks off. Fans of Bus Simulator 2, prepare to be blown away.
Bus and Cable Car Simulator San Francisco is available September 9th in all good retailers for the SRP of £24.99, you can currently pre-order it on the Excalibur Publishing website.
Unfortunately, because the game poses such a different game experience on a minimum spec system, I had to give Bus and Cable Car a slightly lower score, however if you do play it on a mid-high end system, then it is most certainly 5/5 material, simulator fans will not know where to begin with this fantastic game, and it is most definitely worth the price tag.
can i play the game with a steering wheel
Ah Joe, I was waiting for you to arrive on here :) The game should be compatible with steering wheels, however there isn't an extensive list.
I have read that there is issues with combined pedals, and you will have to turn these off on your computer's steering wheel settings.
There is a demo that you could try out with your steering wheel, it would also be a good idea to try the demo out before you buy it anyway, because it didn't run very well on my PC, I had to play it on my sister's.
You can download the demo here I recommend the game highly, but if you're computer has trouble running it, it is nowhere near as fun :(.
Let me know if you have any luck with the demo!
How do I get out of the flat. I have tried everything and none of the keys work.
When I move the mouse the room rotates and it comes up leave flat or use switch but can't go anywhere.
To exit your flat there's a brown door, just walk up to that, when it comes up with 'Leave Flat' just press the Left-mouse button.
The game is laggy..what should i do D:
Hi Tan JL
Unfortunately like I said in the review, the game does not run very well on low spec PCs. However TML Studios have put together two screenshots for the best way to play on a low spec PC.
Hope they help!
hey Charlotte I have trouble with the demo i can't download it! I'll try to get more info if I can use the steering wheel on it. If you have anything that can help tell me plz.
Ooohhh... This looks like an exciting game! The bus and the characters look so real. I'm so excited to try this one. Can I have my own car in this game? =)
got the game brilliant and it works with a ps3 wheel super super game you might have trouble with the bus but you need to change the something in the bus a must buy game
I do not know what to charge the passengers for each fare any1 know?
what do i pay the passengers for their fare?
Hi John, this is one of my favourite parts of the game. If you look in your bus, or in the manual there is a fare tier for different typea of passengers. Most will fall under the standard rate, which I think was $2. If the passenger requires a different fair these are priced differently.
If you want to find how much they cost, its best to consult the manual, because certain routes should charge more. Don't worry, it doesn't take long to memorise the price structure :)
Hey its John again
i wrote this last time: what do i pay the passengers for their fare?
But i cannot find the manual so what do i do to get one?
There should be a manual with the install directory. Here we go, massive comment:
Passenger on the City Route
Adult = $ 2.00
Youth = $ 1.25
Senior = $ 1.25
Disabled = $ 1.00
Medicare = $ 1.00
The fare is entered via the keypad of the cash register. Confirm by clicking "#" with the mouse.
By the way: click the "F6" key on the keypad to display the total amount registered. Subsequently
click the "F6" key to return to input mode.
Adult = $ 4.00
Youth = $ 2.50
Senior = $ 2.50
Disabled = $ 2.00
Medicare = $ 2.00
Cross Town passenger
The fare is calculated according to the distance to the destination. The further the destination is, the higher the fare to be paid. Click on the following key with the mouse:
Adult = F1
Youth = F2
Senior = F3
Disabled = F4
Medicare = F5
charlotte can you please tell me where painted ladies and transamerican pyramid is please because I want to get the just been seen reward. Please help anyone
Good news! I found the Transamerican Pyramid, and Painted Ladies. I've circled them on this map.

HI how do you more buses
how do you more buses
i love this game have been play for 3week now i would like to know where do you go the get the jobs with the pickup truck
my game is slow to move
who do i turn on the sound
Hi Admire, unfortunately as we stated in the review, so machines will have a hard time playing the game, however sound should be on automatically.
Lee the jobs with the pickup truck can be found at your local bus depot, just go straight into the office and you should see some shelves with papers, go up to them, and those jobs all use your truck.
MGB to get more buses all you have to do is make a load of money and go to the showroom on the west of town.
how do you turn on the mirrors? when i go to the settings where it says "vehicle mirror" it won't let me turn it on. can you help me?
hey charlotte i am getting this game soon and i was wondering if you can can u send me all of the controls of how to work the bus if u can???
hey another thingI was wondering if these buses can pick up wheelchairs?? and another thing how do i create my own routes?? can i just change the number of routes?
where do you download the map clear in psd format
Where are all the places of interest to discover because I only need to find one more place
Alright, sorry its taken so long but.
Dustin: I am unsure why this would not be possible to change, on my PC I have the game set to the lowest settings, and I can still turn the mirrors on, sorry. You could always try downloading the latest update.
Marquis: You can download the keyboard layout here, unfortunately there are no wheelchairs in the game, and the game comes with a schedule wizard that allows you to set up your own routes, you can find it in the Bin folder of the installation route.
Joe: Unfortunately there is not a psd available despite what the schedule wizard's manual says, there is a clear JPG version that you can download one from TML's website though.
Brendan: Unfortunately noone has made a map for the places of interest, perhaps I should do this at some point, because a lot of people request it. Perhaps if I have some time this weekend I may give it a go.
hey I have a 2.3 ghz processor with AMD graphics and 64-bit system how can I make the game go faster and when I get in the car I can drive I press the accerate button but it don't work what should I do? please help
In order to drive you've got to turn the engine on with E, take the Handbreak off with Tab and You may have to switch up a gear with PgUp I can't remember if you have to shift gear or not. If you're experiencing bad slowdown, TML produced a couple of screenshots of how to change your graphics settings for the best performance.
What do you have to do to get the "drive like a maniac" reward
You have got to drive around a heck of a lot, I know Joe was aiming for this, not sure if he got it, you just basically have to stick to driving around as much as possible. If anyone has unlocked it, do tell how many kilometres you need to drive to get it!
On the thing where you put where your going and it beeps and says accident what does it mean or is it just a warning
I believe that's just a warning from your head office, if you press enter on the keypad it should go away and continue to say your route.
can u change the bus route number?!
Hi, i did post back in January but got no reply. Does anyone know where i can get the map needed with the bus stop ID's on so i can create my own routes :) thanks.
charlotte i am not show that my setting are good can you show me please
Apologies David E, I have asked the developers of the game about the maps, as the only ones they provide on their website is a clear jpg, and they do not seem to have the bus Stop IDs maps anymore, hopefully I'll get a reply, if I do I'll post it up here ASAP!
Marquis I believe you can't change existing routes, only make new ones sorry!
How do you create a custom bus route
Alright! The Map templates can be downloaded here!
i got the job but i don`t know how to fill up the tank
ooh thank you for everything
What is the speak button for on the on board computer.
hey I have Intel penium 4 with 3.2ghz processer computer and when I play the game it says target format not supported do I need to download windows sp service pack 3??
If you are running Windows XP, then yes, it is a requirement:
- Windows XP (SP3)/ Vista / 7
- Processor with 2.6 GHz Duo Core
- NVIDIA GeForce 9800 or equivalent ATI graphics card
- 2 GB RAM
- 2 GB free hard drive space
- DirectX 9.0c
- Sound card
- DVD drive
ok well what about a computer with 4gb and 100 gb of ram and a triple core processer with Amd built inside of it
Then you would still need sp3 on Windows XP :D I don't make the game marquis, sorry, I just write about it.
Why is there a speak button for on the on board computer.
Brendan if anything it will be for a voice calling out the bus stops for passengers, thats how its worked in previous games. Never touched the button myself though so I can't vouch for that being solid fact!
How many freindliness marks do you need before you get "how nice" reward
Where can you buy a pair of sun glasses from
hey I was playin the game soo good then all of a sudden it shut off sayin luncher exe stop why is it doin that?!
Sorry Brendan not sure on the reward, however you can buy sunglasses from any of the petrol stations littered across the city.
Marquis, sounds like your game crashed, can't say I've ever had it crash on my PC before :( bad luck I guess
ok if I set it to a high graphic on the game could it still do the same?"
Games will crash whenever they want unfortunately, setting it to lower graphics is always your safest bet with most, although Bus and Cable car looks a fraction of its true beauty on lower settings :(
now it says failed to the engine and I got everything the game need so do I have to install the game again?! because I had the game set on high graphic
So are you saying the game wont start at all?
no it wont no more it says finalize to start the engine and it was working so well last night
Eeeek :( I would ask TML on Facebook, they make the game, and if they don't get back quick enough, a reinstallation may be your only option. I asked them a question yesterday and they got back within a couple of hours.
Your save data should be stored in your Documents folder under \BusCableCarSimulator hopefully you can keep that and use it so you don't lose your data if you do install it again.
I have windows 7 and it have that luncher exe they say luncher exe stopp certain stuff is there a way that I can delete luncher exe?
no no no, don't delete that or you won't be able to run the game!
so what I do how I move this game from luncher exe
The Launcher makes the game run, I dont understand why you want to remove it, what told you to do that? Without the launcher the game wont run at all :/
so I'm just stuck u saying what could I do to stoop this problem
Sort of looks like re-installing the game. If the problem still happens then I really recommend contacting TML Studios.
hey do I supposed to put the cd in when I'm playin the game or I'm supposed ti take it out because my game is kinda skipping like it scratched a lil
No, the disc isn't required, I give it a play everynow and again, don't have to have the disc in to do so.
hey thanks and where is the showroom the spot i buy buses at?? and is it true that if u runnin low on gas on the bus that the air pressure wont load up?
Alright, here's a map showing where the showroom is where you buy the buses.
I'm not sure about if you run low on gas that occurs, however if you are unable to gain air pressure on your bus then you need to go to a gas station and buy a new fan belt.
ok and can tell me how to change the sign to out of service and if there more signs that i dont know about tell me!! and what do a fan belt to a bus speed it up or somthing?! and how i use the fanbelt?!
The fan belt is only required as a replacement if your existing fanbelt packs up, it controls the air pressure in your bus, you already have one in every bus, it doesnt do anything special.
To get Not in Service to appear you press 'Route' and then code 99. You'll only use not in service there are no other signs.
if i set the game in differcult mode how hard would that make the game be like how hard would the game be
what's up with my game my pc is well over the requirements for the game and when I playin slow thru bus moving real slow like in slow montion
I still dont know how to get to create a bus route
I don't know marquis, as I stated in the review you need a mid-high end system to play the game how its meant to be played, otherwise you need to play it on low graphics like I do.
There is a pdf that explains how to create a bus route in the installation folder, not to mention that the manual is in there too, I am not explaining it in a comment because it is far too complex.
wow thanks I dont even know where the installation folder at is it in the game while u playin?
no, as in the folder where the game is installed on your hard drive
o well how to I get in it because when I click it it show up in chianse writing I cant read that and I wanna how fast is your game goin when u put it into low settings
I've got everything on low, and it plays alright, get a little juddery if theres too much on screen, but my PC is built to travel around, so its not got a very high spec.
If you're on Windows 7 the installation folder will be
C:\Program Files (x86)\BusCableCarSimulator
Considering that the game is german, I don't know why you are seeing chinese anywhere, if you can't find the folder just search your computer for Manual_ScheduleWizzard for how to make a bus route. Or Manual for the game's manual.
are there any other signs that can be on the bus and when I make the bus schedule how I'm supposed to know were to start at?!
and I'm confused to make a route how do I save it and when I did I did not see in the routes selections in the game and what do it means when it says way point route id number and stuff because I'm tryin to make a route number 21 replacing the 90 route number
I was just wondering if anybody knew how many kilometres I have to drive in the Diesel bus to get the "Let the Diesel Smoke" achievement and how many kilometres I need to travel to get the "Drive like a maniac" achivement.
and I was also wondering if I'm out in the middle of no where and the bus brakes down I have no gas or no fanbelt would I do can I do just call somebody to come and fix in case I dont wanna fix iy myself?
Apologies, my PC is broken, I cannot answer any of your questions until I get it up and running again.
When I go to Settings then Audio, I see this bar that says, Music Volume. What is that for? Is there a radio or something like that in the game?
Hi Charlotte i have a problem with my game that is when i play then my game works slow as if it is in slow motion. I really want to play my game. I installed it from my cd. Please help me in this.
Hi Cameron, not sure to be fair, there may be a radio that you can turn on in the truck, otherwise, never remember hearing any music in the game!
Hi Ravesh, yes, if the game runs really slow, unfortunately you are going to have to turn your settings down. The developers have screenshots to show you how to get the best performance on your PC here and here.
how do you get the drive like a maniac positive reward?
One again, I was just wondering about how many kilometres I have to drive in the Diesel bus to get the "Let the Diesel Smoke" achievement and how many kilometres I need to travel to get the "Drive like a maniac" achivement.
how come when I drive in day time the game goes normal speed fast but when night hits the street lights come on then the game start goin slower ?!!!!!!!!
Hi Ravesh, i know your problem with the slow motion. You have to have your computer plugged in to electricity. It happens to me when my computer is not plugged in.
is there a way that I can Change to another route without having to go back to the garage ????"!!!"
hi guys,just a quickie, is it possible to kidnap people and take them back to your flat? :)
so Marquis, the probable reason of the game going slow when it hits night is because it's rendering all those street lights which your computer is having trouble coping with, and I believe in order to change route you have to return to the garage.
Peter, no unfortunately not, this is a light hearted simulator, you cannot kidnap people :) although I suppose you could simulate Speed, but your bus wont explode when you fall below 50 mph although, and your passengers probably wouldnt mind that you are taking them off route :D
what store or other places i can get this get from because i was told the reason its skipps is becuase its the disk
Marquis, Bus & Cable Car does not need the disk to run, so there is no reason that the disk is a problem. I run it from my installation, which requires no disk.
Local GAME stores should stock it.
well can u tell how your game work on your oc do it crashes or it goes perfect ?!
and when u got the game was the game in a box case or something and how long did it took your game to install ?!!
and what brand of computer u have???!!
On my PC which is a very modest PC, the game runs alright, but has to be played on the lowest settings, I had to play it on our editor's PC on which it played perfectly.
It probably took about 10 minutes to install I don't remember I was sent the review copy a long time ago, which was installed from a disc.
I am running an AMD Phenom X2 555, what really drags me down is my Radeon 5570, as I stated in the review, and have mentioned countless times in comments is this game requires a very very good computer to run it properly, if your PC is not a high spec, it will have trouble when playing the game.
like im sayin when u had the case did it came with a booklet and do the case was in a box and what is our editors pc?? and i have a AMD ATHLON 64x2 dual core processor 3800+ with a geforce 8600 gts graphics card but i found out that i have a fake cheap game that why it not workin right and always force closes and crash
Yes it had a case, Excalibur simulators do not come with manuals, they are found in the installation folder.
Gamercast is a website that posts news and reviews, we have an editor who has to proof read all of the content for the wwebsite, her PC is very good. The recommended spec for this game is very high.
and is it true that they have some cheap copies with bad software cause the one I get keep skipping and I had met the requirements so a computer tech told me that the software on the disk is bad and when I download the demo it go real slow but on the disk it fast
Who was this computer tech? Because games rarely run on disks these days, I am an avid PC gamer, and as I keep saying Bus & Cable Car Simulator requires a very high spec pc, simply meeting the minimum requirements will not allow you to play the game perfectly.
To get good performance I was playing the game on a quad core machine, the game does not require a good graphics card to play, but a powerhouse of a processor, back on the old forums for Bus & Cable car there were threads upon threads of people discussing performance issues. I mentioned in the review that you need a good pc to play the game propely and I still stick by it.
I just got the game but I have a major problem which is I can't steer left or right using the keyboard arrows. Have contacted Excalibur but haven't responded in over 2 weeks!
Can someone PPPLLLEEEEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSEEEEEE help me!
GamerNoob, I've never heard of any problem like that before! I don't want to make you sound like a noob, but you've taken the handbreak off and shifted the gear up right? You can accelerate and break I take it, just not steer :/
You dont have any other sort of peripherals plugged in do you?
I have already taken the handbrake off and shifted the gear up and done everything required but the steering still doesn't work. The lights, the accerlerate and brake work and the engine and everthing works but the steering doesn't.
I have a joystick, a printer and a webcam plugged in. I'm not sure if this would affect the game.
Oh really? Try unplugging the joystick, see if steering works then, it may be attempting to use the joystick for steering, despite the fact you do not have it set up for playing :) worth a shot?
hey what version of the game you have mines got v 1.06 and I cant even zoom in to the map like u supposed to do help me please
If you get all the patches do the mirrors work
why do my game crash all the time u did everything to make it good and still and now the game not even skipin no more and goin fast and still skips it so annoying
How exactly do you work the onboard computer? I'm confused! Thanks!
Alright so the onboard computer can be a little daunting at first, but it's actually pretty straightforward :)
So when you first get in your bus you press I to see it, before you start your route you are advised to set it to 'Not in Service' this can be done by pressing 'Route' '99', and then 'Enter'.
So, when you want to put your route into the Computer, select 'Line', then put in your three digit line number, then press 'Enter' then you'll need to enter your route number, so press 'Route' and then the two digit number, then press 'Enter'
Hi again Marquis, I'm sorry but I do not know what the problem with your game is, I'm just a fan and general PC gamer, if you have problems you should contact the developers TML Studios like I said originally!
I wanna know what will happened if get into an accident and I put the code on the on board computer for accident would like an ambulance come or what?!
and which version is better of the game , Excalibur simulatsimulator publishing or just the one by tml studios
Does any one know how to exit flat. Have tried before and always worked , now doesn't work anymore .have sent an email to TML. So hope they reply but meanwhile can anyone ppppppllllllllllleeeeeeeeaaaaaassssseeee help. Thanks , denise

Help, my bus will not move from the depot!
After a lot of saving I finally bought the cable car and was happy to drive it, until....
I took a route with many cable car crossings, and everytime I go across such a xing, it makes a terrible crashing sound, I get the message that I didn't release the cable in time, and I get a $1000 fine. The manual isn't clear about it at all, and I tried several times to get across a xing, but everytime I get the crashing sound, the message and a $1000 fine. I'm now $11000 in the red, so that kind of takes the fun out of it.
I don't know what to do. The leverage sometimes is set back and on other tracks it is set to front. Changing it (arrow up and down) while going across the xing doesn't help. Still get the fine.
How can I cross a cable car crossing? Please help...

Hi Charlotte I was wondering what to if a passenger doesn't board the bus or tram. I get mad when one person doesn't get on and all the people after that person cant come aboard. What should I do?
Oh no? Really Nicholas, I never personally encountered this issue in San Fran, found it a few times in Euro Bus Simulator 2, unfortunately the only way to remedy it I believe it to start the route again :(
Does anyone know how many kilometres to drive to get the reward "Drive like maniac"?
When this happens to me, I turn the kneeling (k) on and off several times, that usualy works!
charlotte I have found out how to fix the mirrors al you have to do is at the start when it says new game or continue game click settings then click graphics then you can change what ever you want without it being blacked out so just click on mirrors on then the mirrors will be on but you can only change this then when the game starts you cant cause its blanked out try it it worked for me
I have a problem with schedule wizzard. always when I try to open a map program stops working! Please help!
sorry never happened to me?

@Joe - thank you, but it doesn't work when i try that - any other ideas?
I don't want to sound condescending, but you've picked up a route from the office right? Not sure if they'll get on your bus without a route.

sharron press f1 and you will see if the gear is on drive and the parking brake is off
How many km do you need to get drive like a maniac
What do you have to do to get all roped up reward
Unfortunately to my belief there is still noone to achieve both the Drive Like a Maniac and All Roped Up rewards as they both require an unspecified amount of driving in buses/cable cars.
You know what? I'll contact TML Studios and see if they'll let us in on the secret!
