The City Bus is a vehicle in Shattered.
There are two variants of the city bus. The first is a Nova Bus RTS-06, and the second resembles a Nova Bus LFS. Both buses are colored white with a light gray bottom. They read ICTA and Interface City Transit on the front and sides of them, and each bus spawns with a random fleet number on their sides and back. The numbers range from 5011 to 5811. Each bus also spawns with one of seven random Special Bus license plates on the front and back of them.
The bus, however, will never be seen driving in a route, it just drives around the city, occasionally stopping at stops and letting people board/exit. James can get on a bus when it is at a stop, and the bus will drive around like normal even if James is on it. When James is on it, however, you will not be able to see inside the bus unless First-Person View is being used. Instead, the camera is positioned from above the bus, as if the player was driving it.
James can hijack or steal the bus and drive it around, like other vehicles. The bus, however, is not a very good choice for losing the cops due to its slow speed and nature, and difficulty steering. Although, it is a strong vehicle as it can ram other vehicles off the road if going fast and, like bigger trucks, can disable a smaller vehicle if the bus rams into it full speed.
Overall, the bus is a good pick for durability, but not so good for a getaway vehicle, nor is it good for defense of the player, due its large window, exposing the player to major gunfire from the cops. If in tough situations it does provide good cover because of its length. The bus also has great durability, taking at least 20-30 bombs to completely destroy it.
- On the bus display, there will be a random number, ranging from 1-8, as well as a random destination, which can either say: DOWNTOWN, QUEEN ANNA, MYSTRIC DISTRICT, MELODY PARK or SOUTHERN PARK. For example, a bus could say 8: QUEEN ANNA, or 3: MELODY PARK on the front display.
