I’m seeing a lot of fluxuation in earnings, has anyone been successful in the bus public transportation department? Without trains or good’s. I’m hardly hanging on thanks to the help of one goods transport.
My other stations hit green figures as well but drop everyone once in a while as shown in picture.Here is the picture along with most successful line.
You should try starting the game in 1950 on hard, I’m at 2158 or so year and just found a way to get close to break even point… basically tons of cargo which is profitable and easy to make and try to build 1 3 town line at a time… since you need 3 trains or so to get the time down, lots of buses to feed the line your looking at a healthy 3mil profit before passenger trains to break even.
I started my trains with 20 mil surplus and it drained me to -2mil before the towns started to balance things out…. granted no passenger line is making money… 🙂
I am on hard and 1950 however on production, that’s what I’m trying to avoid, I’m trying to see if it’s possible to make a profit out of passengers alone. So far the most I can do is break positive by a small margin. Just focusing on industrial is too easy. Profits are huge for small maintenance cost.
