Passenger ship about to dock

Public transport allows traveling for citizens, decreasing the number of private vehicles on the road and alleviating traffic and traffic-created noise pollution. Transportation come in various methods: bus stations, metro stations, train stations, airports, harbors, and taxi.[1]

Transportation can be used for various purposes:

  • Intra-city transport (commuter, tourist, cargo)
  • Inter-city transport (tourist, cargo)

Types of transportationEdit

BusEdit

Line

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.

Trams

Tram line

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.[2]

MetroEdit

Metro line tool

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.
