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 purchasing all of the Vault Bundles for a total of 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. Tickets can be purchased for 500g at the machine to the left of the bus during the hours that Pam is present.
It is possible to get the bus earlier than 10am by waiting for Pam outside her trailer at 8.30am and standing in her way. Once she walks through The Player, she will walk significantly faster than usual and reach the bus stop at 9:40am, and a ticket can be purchased as soon as she arrives. Purchasing a ticket at the machine triggers the bus to take The Player to the Calico Desert. Tickets include the return trip from the Desert to the Bus Stop.
It is not possible to take the bus to the Desert on Spring 25, due to Pam's appointment at Harvey's Clinic.
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 was never implemented in the released version of the game. It was intended to appear in the Player's wallet. In v1.3, the bus ticket image was replaced in game files with the Magnifying Glass image.
- After repairing the bus, Lewis will say "...did you hear? It seems the old town bus started working again overnight! That old thing has been dormant for decades... This is truly a great mystery."
