Bus Simulator 21 Next Stop – Official School Bus Extension is a DLC for the popular bus simulation game Bus Simulator 21. This new extension was released on September 7, 2022, and adds three new school buses, new missions, and new plenty of new features to the game. The new school buses are all officially licensed from the American manufacturer Blue Bird. They include the All American FE, the All American RE, and the Vision. These buses are all well-designed and accurately modeled, and they provide a realistic driving experience. Each of the buses handles how they seem to in real life. They are realistically sluggish and have a feeling of weight and mass to them.

The new missions are all centered around school trips. Players must pick up children at various stops around the city, transport them safely and punctually to their schools, and then pick them up again at the end of the day. These missions can be challenging, but they are also a lot of fun. They are short enough to keep things moving but long enough to be worth the money of the extension. While the overall experience is a lot of fun, it is not without bugs. The most frustrating thing I encountered was that the awarding of points for use of the stop arm and lights is very buggy and I’ve only got them to trigger properly once. In addition to the new missions, the DLC also adds a number of new features to the game. These include new bus stops, new school buildings, and new NPCs. The new bus stops are located near schools and other important landmarks, and they make it easier for players to pick up and drop off passengers. The new school buildings are also well-designed and accurately modeled. The new NPCs are children, and they add a new level of realism to the game.

The Bus Simulator 21 Next Stop – Official School Bus Extension is one of those gaming experiences that allows you to pass the time with a zen-like driving experience. The game is compatible with most of the big driving peripherals and I loved using my Logitech wheel and pedals while driving my routes. The only thing that would make the game better would be for it to have full VR support.

Overall, Bus Simulator 21 Next Stop – Official School Bus Extension is a great DLC that adds a lot of new content to the game. The new school buses are well-designed and accurately modeled, the new missions are challenging and fun, and the new features make the game more realistic and immersive.
