The Bus Stop is the area you first arrive at in the game. The bus is broken down after you arrive and remains so until repaired by the Junimos after completing all of the Vault Bundles for 42,500g or by purchasing the Bus repair for 40,000g from the Joja Community Development Form.
Pam becomes the Bus Driver once the bus is repaired. She arrives at the Bus Stop at 10:10am and will leave at 5:00pm every day, and tickets are only available for purchase during this time. Bus tickets can be purchased for 500g at the machine to the left of the bus during the hours that Pam is present. Purchasing a ticket at the kiosk triggers the bus to take The Player to the Calico Desert. Tickets include the return trip from the Desert to the bus stop.
The bus stop is closed on the 25th of Spring, due to Pam's checkup at Harvey's Clinic.
The fastest way to the Bus Stop is to take the Minecart or just walk to the Bus Stop from your farm. You can get on the bus earlier than 10am by waiting for Pam outside her trailer and standing in her way. Once she runs through you, head for the Bus Stop. Pam will get there at 9:40am and a ticket can be purchased as soon as she arrives.
If you leave your horse by the bus stop, when you return from the desert a message will appear on-screen saying "Your loyal horse waits patiently for your return." or "[Horse's name] is wondering where you have been."
The bus ticket shown below is unimplemented in the game as of PC v1.2. It was intended to appear in the Player's wallet.
