Top 5 (realistic) best Bus Simulator games for Android

Bus simulator games are cool stuff to play on our mobiles or even on our PCs. Picking up passengers from a bus depot to dropping passengers to their destination is the primary duty of a bus driver.

As drivers, we must prioritize passenger and bus safety by driving carefully on the roads.

I searched all the realistic bus simulator games available in the Google Play store and I identified a few of the games and played them for more than two years.

Here are my top 5 all-time best bus simulator games in Android.

  1. Bus Simulator: Ultimate
  2. Bus Simulator Indonesia
  3. Coach Bus Simulator
  4. World Bus Driving Simulator
  5. Public Transport Simulator – C

Bus Simulator: Ultimate

The most popular gaming bus simulator to play from the Play Store before the Bus Simulator Indonesia upgrade.

In Bus Simulator: Ultimate, you can choose the country you like to drive the bus and improve your driving skills as a driver.

This game is awesome to play and I will explain the theme of the game shortly. You need to wait for some time to get the route ready for you to drive the bus.

You need gold coins to unlock the new countries or remove the wait time to drive the bus.


You need to choose a country and start selecting to and from locations initially. The beauty is you can decide your own price for the journey. You can also select any food offerings during the journey.

After you select all that, you need to wait for passengers to board the bus(This is not shown in the game). If the ticket price is low, more passengers will board your bus and vice versa.

After your departure, passengers give feedback about your driving and the facilities you offer on the bus. You need to safely drop the passengers to their destination and get rewarded.

Pros of the Bus Simulator: Ultimate Simulator

  1. World map included to drive the bus across the world.
  2. Create your own company and hire drivers.
  3. All vehicle control modes are available.
  4. Play multiplayer mode
  5. As you progress to higher levels, more bus stops become available to increase your revenue.
  6. Realistic graphics, city maps, and bus stations.
  7. 30+ buses are available to drive.
  8. Highway toll roads
  9. The timer is enabled for each route depending on the destination.
  10. You have the option to tidy up your bus if it becomes dirty.

Cons of the Bus Simulator: Ultimate Simulator

  1. The longer the travel distance, the increased waiting time, requiring the expenditure of gold coins to expedite it.
  2. You cannot unlock new countries with a few gold coins.
  3. Ads appear while playing the game, and there are a few glitches during gameplay.
  4. The internet should be activated while your hired drivers are operating your buses.

Zuuks Games developed this game and became the most popular bus simulator game available in the Play Store. More than 100+ million downloads and a rating of 4.2 based on 2.32M reviews.

Unfortunately, you cannot play this game as it is not available in the Play Store.

Back in March 2017, Maleo introduced the Indonesia Bus Simulator in the Play Store. After several improvements, it is now the famous bus simulator game with a mod system introduced recently.

The engine sound, camera experience, passenger rating, and travel experience of European cities are the highlights of this bus simulator game.

World Bus Driving Simulator

Dynamic games Ltda created this bus simulator game based on Brazil’s map. The most famous buses in Brazil are used in this game.

Public Transport Simulator – C is another modern game developed on top of the Public Transport Simulator. The only difference is the depot is present in the “- C” game whereas in the other game, bus stops are available.
