| Which areas are not covered by my passenger network?
19-February-2011 Updated tip
In the map window you can display the area which is covered by your passenger network.
Image: Map Window
You can zoom the map with the mouse wheel.
How to display the map window :
In recent Simutrans releases (0.86.0.0 and later) you can show/hide the station coverage with the v-key.
| How to place bus stops?
You don't need to place very much bus stops in a city. Each bus stop covers an area of 5x5 tiles (in old Simutrans releases 7x7 tiles). In current simutrans releases you can show the coverage area with the v-key.
In the following image I have highlighted the area which is served by a bus stop:

| Speed limit on city roads
There is a speed limit of 50 km/h on city roads (in Simutrans 0.84.1.0 and later)
You should consider this if you buy new busses and trucks.
| Connect cities by rail only
Connect cities with rail only (a loop track with multiple trains). Otherwise you still need 50+ busses.

| How passengers select their route
Passengers are not selecting the shortest route. They select the route with the least number of transfers.
Passengers currently count the transfers between transportation modes.
I.e. change from bus to train = 1 transfer. They try to use the route with the least number of transfers. If there are "equal" routes, they use whichever they find first.
Note from webmaster: every change is counted (Even that from bus to bus)
As of Simutrans 0.84.8 (This will change sometime)
