Job Markers

The first location where you can get the job is from the Civilian Headquarters in San Fierro. You can mark the location by typing the command /gps then type in the search textbox the keyword "Civilian" or the full name of the place.

Double click the name and you are done marking the location.

From there, you can start the job either in Los Santos or in the city where you currently at (San Fierro). You can teleport to Los Santos by choosing the El Corona, Los Santos in the GUI when you enter the Bus Driver marker in Civilian Headquarters.
Click me

In this tutorial, I chose the Esplande North in San Fierro.
Once you are there, click the "Have Job" button.

Another place or location where you can get the job is the Los Santos Market Area (LMSA). You can mark the job in your /gps by typing a keyword in the textbox.

Job Vehicles

Note: I won't be detailed about the vehicles' statistics. You can compare the job vehicles in-game if you want since the details about them are listed in the GUI.

You can find a marker where you can buy a job vehicle in either job locations you choose. Enter this marker and press Z then choose the vehicle you want. There are two job vehicles for this job, the Coach and the Bus.

Coach was said to be faster than Bus since it has higher acceleration, so I guess it's recommendable for this job. Still, it's up to you.
Once you have decided which vehicle to buy, simply press the Buy button in the GUI. Click me


Job Instructions

Once you bought the vehicle from the marker, you will spawn inside the vehicle. Or if you already have the vehicle, enter the vehicle to open the GUI to start the job.

In the GUI, you are able to choose which Route to take or to start, but I recommend choosing the closest starting route or the very first line in the GUI to avoid wasting time.

If you want to start from a specific location or city, I suggest you going there manually before starting the job.

Quick explanation about the Routes.

If you notice in the GUI,
'F' - Route goes forward one direction (east-to-west)
'B' - Route goes backwards one direction (west-to-east)
'A' - Route has sub-destination after main destination listed

Example Route:

SF Route 4B:Cranberry Station > Ocean Flats > Battery Point > Cranberry Station

As mentioned in the note about rout letters of the GUI, this route is Route Letter B which is West to East.


So if we look to our map,


this route should start backwards from East to South, South to West, West to North, then North to East.
So from (EAST)Cranberry Station, going to (WEST)Ocean Flats, then to (NORTH)Battery Point, then finishing the route back to (EAST)Cranberry Station

It should work the same for Route 'F' which is East to West

For Route 'A' which has sub-destination after the main destination, it isn't really a complicated one and a self-explanatory as explained in the description.

Now that we know how the Route Letter works, we also need to know a few reminders about the job.

First is the difference about the green and the red checkpoints/blips.

Green checkpoints are basically guide checkpoints as you go around the road. Pay a little attention to your radar as these green checkpoints will appear as green blips on your radar to guide you. There's an arrow inside the green checkpoints as well as additional guide.

Now Red checkpoints are simply the bus stops. Make sure that you are not exceeding the speed limit of entering this checkpoint which is  35 KM/H (20 MPH).

Speed limit and the information listed below can be found on the bottom right corner of your screen.

Once you successfully stopped at the red checkpoint,

press N to open the door to unload/load passengers.


Wait your passengers for a few seconds


Once all the passengers have boarded, press N again to close the door and proceed to the next checkpoint.


Payments

Notes
  • Route that pays the most is LS Route 32.
  • You will get paid every 5th bus stop.
  • The payment you receive can be different from the list below sometimes but it shouldn't be too low.

City routes, routes which start and end in the same city, like 'From San Fierro Doherty to San Fierro CITy Island'
