The Double-Decker Bus Terminal (from the special edition) is called a "bus terminal" like the one that carries sims around the region, but in the tooltip there is no mention of any regional effect. So my question is: does it replace the shuttle depot or the bus terminal?? (in other words: does it work only in the city, or is it region-wide?) Thank you


The Double-decker Bus Terminal fills the same role as the Bus Terminal.

The functionality is the same. Exceptions are that the double-decker:

  • Has a capacity of 100 (compared to 80).
  • Costs 800/hr (compared to 750).

As for regional effects:

  • Workers can always commute to and from your city.
  • A Shuttle Bus Depot (the small one) allos them to do this more effectively (more people per vehicle, less traffic).
  • A Bus Terminal (or Double-decker Bus Terminal) opens up for tourist transportation, to and from your city.

Its important to remember that all traffic is essentially opened up if someone places a Bus Terminal. When they do, you can just go ahead and place Bus Stops and get region-wide transport. A Bus Stop requires a Shuttle Bus Depot in your city or a Bus Terminal in the region.

  • Good block of info. Well beyond the question asked but good none the less! +1 for you!

  • To clarify, can sims actually ride a shuttle bus to a different city? Mar 12 '13 at 17:50

    @AaronKurtzhals, I think so. They can ride their own cars to other cities. So I cant see why the buses wouldnt. But I know for sure that the buses do if you or anyone else have placed the Bus Terminal.

  • The Double-decker buses don't leave the city -- so it's actually a replacement for the Shuttle Bus Depot.
