    I had same problem made no money took to long or got stuck in traffic miles away from the stop, due to being diverted so I came up with the straight line rule and so far they all make alot of money and frequency goes down to 20 sec.  I’m on my phone so can’t put screen but I will later to show you what I mean I’ll try explain.

    Make a straight line from where you want to go, blue to red to green to yellow most populated,  then when making the line click all 4 then click the last one again then 3rd and 2nd and 1st you have 4 bus stops but the bus will stop 8 times and you will get a perfect line on just that one road, and I only need 2-3 buses or trams in 1909 and they the line is at 450 odd thousand. and at the end of one if the lines I put the train station  too which then In creases it. I usually have 3 if these a city in a cross format. I’ll upload screen tonight from pc

    Same here if I was on any of my trains you can’t look at scenery because there are none

    the pictures they use to advertise are misleading

    Later in the game I am 2020. I deleted every bus and link due to they were at – 50k then put a tram track in 2 trams they now make 100k,  it seems like they want to get on a tram not a bus now., I also made a ring road around my city 3 lane motorway and put trams on that 4 trams to go around city each at full and making 450k

    I had the same problem could not figure it out for 100 years lol, so what I do now is have one stop at the bright colour of each part of the city green red yellow blue plan the line aswell so it makes the best loop as possible for short time buy 2 busses etc or those steam things and go from there, then when u build a train station put one outside it add to the line as another bus etc mine now make a profit I’m in 1967 and they only do around 60-100k.

    and as for the lighter  colours sod em they can walk

    There is a post like this on second or 3rd page on this forum with same kind of topic, you need to connect a second train track after each station. then make them on way with signals, and a signal at each platform to stop one train while it let’s the other out

    I had done the same thing here for two cities connected, but then I wanted to connect one to another city should of put in a 3 platform,  so if you go buy the screen above I took for example the left track over to the other city but I had a lot of trains due to i was using 4 tracks form one city to another. and now they were waiting loads and went in new profit so I tried 3 tracks to one platform and it worked, so looking at the screen again I joined a third track onto the existing two with signals, had same train and amount of carriages on the lines for identical speed. still longer then 4 tracks but now they make money again,  I did the same with the new line I built so when you look at it now arisen the screen instead of 4 lines I now see 6 but 3 of those go to another city, I think when you decide this will be my main city it’s best to put in a 3 or 4 station to cover yourself later in like someone posted,

    I always seem to make my main city in middle of map aswell so should of thaught of this. your prob think I g I could of destroyed platform and re built a new one and connected the lines I tried in pause mode but due to the alignment of the station etc I couldn’t connect the existing lines and went bankrupt trying lol, tip save your game manually before big improvements so if you don’t succeed you can load before you tried

    Trains will spread out aswell if they are the same train with same amount of carriages etc, and if you have signals down the line

    I’ve found making the lines one way helps solve this problem with signals down the track, then one of them will wait for the train to come out of station, then when that train comes out of the station they are on the same track and by the time that train catches up due to first train in station the other side it wait, then they spread out, I had 8 trains going in a straight line to 3 platforms along one side of map and this one way thing really helped.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< this way<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    platform =========== platform============platform.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this way

    with signals of corse

    if you get it wrong later on next thing you know they burn a whole in you revenue that took hours to make.

    I deleted the road between my two towns and people couldn’t drive anymore and my train station got more people on it.

    evil but it worked

    But I may need to look into it more meaning people won’t go to work in heat city anymore if they don’t want to use the train or go to the shops

    ohhhh ok I think I get it now, I guess this works for trains too. Because usually I had one train going city to City and on platform there would be only the amount or just under what the train would carry. And there were loads of cars on the road going city to city.

    so if I add another train aswell that will also increase,

     

    I’ll give this all ago thx for replys

    ok ill try just a few stops and see how it goes from there, I think i went in with the mind of transport tycoon where you need loads of stops.

    i did wait a few years yes it got to 30 years and each bus line made no profit when it had to replace them.

    I still don’t understand this frequency thing either so maybe due to i had one bus for each line I made eg 8 stops green to blue it took too long?

    I tired this also but it didn’t work, I just made it so the train can’t go on the other track and make a separate depot for the line, you can make a 1 line station and have 2 tracks, you just need a signal before the station and the train will stop To let the other out the station.
