    Welcome to Metro Vancouver, a region located on the western coast of Canada in the province of British Columbia. Home to over 2.5 million people, the transit system, Translink, must provide reliable service for commuters to use on a daily basis. The bus system, operated by the Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC), serves 236 million rides each year, operating 213 routes over the cities of Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Surrey, Coquitlam, and Langley.

    For more information on the real life transit system, you may visit the wiki page.

    In the OMSI 2 recreation, this map focuses on the city of Richmond. For the first release, the map will contain one fully operable route with authentic timetables, the 408, a 12 km route serving the central-east part of the city. The service provides 7-9 minute frequencies during weekday peak hours and 20 minute frequencies on Saturday and Sunday. The entire road layout of the OMSI 2 map is true to life, including the infamous Garden City/Granville intersection in the heart of the city.

    In future versions of the map, three more routes will be available, including the central-west route 406, the three road corridor route 403, and the university route 480.

    Approved the thread.
  • Great idea. Do you by any chance already know which dependencies will be needed?

    Für mich ist es nur ein kleiner Tritt auf die Bremse, für alle anderen ein großer Schritt nach vorne! (Busfahrerweisheit)
