Transportation can be used for various purposes:
- Intra-city transport (commuter, tourist, cargo)
- Inter-city transport (tourist, cargo)
Types of transportationEdit
Bus services allow citizens to travel in a public vehicle through designated stops. Bus depots can sustain an unlimited amount of buses, in the expense of a hefty price for purchasing bus depots. Bus lines are travel routes with designated stops, created by placing bus stops around a city and looping it back to the starting position.
Tram services are available in Cities: Skylines Snowfall. Trams operate on tracks and are stationed in tram depots when inactive. Tram tracks can be built on existing roads with versions of the tracks. Tracks can also be standalone with no road beneath them. Trams are capable of transporting 90 passengers with vanilla trams. However, unlike buses, trams have nearly 15% higher upkeep costs per distance traveled. Trams are not hindered by snow.
|Road||Cost ₡/cell||Upkeep ₡/week/cell||Speed limit||Description||Unlock|
|₡70||₡0.56||40||A two-lane road with tram tracks. Supports low traffic.||Boom Town|
|₡60||₡0.56||40||A two-lane, one-way road with tracks for trams. Supports low traffic.||Boom Town|
|₡100||₡1.36||50||A four-lane road with tram tracks. Supports medium traffic.||Boom Town|
|₡65||₡0.48||40||Standalone tram track with rails for both directions.||Boom Town|
|₡45||₡0.32||40||Standalone one-way tram track.||Boom Town|
Metro services are underground transportation, suitable for heavily populated and largely condensed cities. Metros can be added by placing a metro station. Metros travel through tunnels, which can be created through the tunnel tool and work similarly to the road system. Like buses, metros require loops to be created in order for citizens to travel.
Trains use the railway system that allows both passenger travel and cargo travel through land. Train tracks can be placed throughout the city to allow traveling.
Harbors are water-based transport that may carry passengers and cargo coming from outside sources. Ships do not need routes, but they do require a path to and from harbors and outside connection.
Airports are airborne transport that carry passengers to and from airports and the outside connection. Airplanes do not need air routes.
Taxi services are available in Cities: Skylines After Dark. Taxi mainly serves as tourist transportation and are highly recommendable for commercial districts. Taxis are available through taxi depots. Unlike bus and metro lines, taxis wait for calls from citizens by waiting in taxi stands and begin traveling to the citizen when called for.
