Metro Anarchy#9: Cities Skylines Bus Experiment

The Bad City seems like an excellent place to take on the Metro Anarchist’s nemesis in Cities Skylines – bus lines. We undertake to build a vanilla bus network that doesn’t have huge pile-ups of Cims at bus stops while also not undermining the existing metro station.

Results are mixed but stick around to the end of the video to find out what worked, what didn’t and what to expect for the next attempt at creating Bad City Bus Lines!
