Take on the role of a tram driver and manager. Drive six tram models, from cutting-edge, sleek trams to those with a classic, timeless charm through the lively city with its numerous sights.

Drive six tram models

If you have played and enjoyed Bus Simulator 21 Next Stop, then you'll feel right at home with Tram Simulator Urban Transit. Both games are based in the North American-themed city of Angel Shores.

Not only that, but the gaming mechanics are very similar. If you're comfortable hopping into the driver's seat on Bus Simulator 21 Next Stop, then those same skills come in handy here as the two are very similar.

There's two main parts to the game: Tram driving and business management. When driving you'll transport passengers through Angel Shores and drop them off at different stations. Follow traffic rules and deal with different weather scenarios, day and night cycles and traffic obstacles. With business management you'll create timetables, take care of new stops and the rail network.

When you start the game, you're strongly advised to play the Driving School tutorial. This sets up the basic controls and gives you a quick feel of the game and what's expected of you.


Welcome to Angel Shores

When you start the game proper, you can opt for story, career and sandbox with multiplayer option for all three modes. The story mode delivers 10+ missions. In career mode you can start right away to expand your tram company with all aspects of the game unlocked from the beginning. In sandbox mode, you can drive and plan straight away without mission constraints or financial worries. Plus, join the community in multiplayer mode, where you can collaborate and compete with fellow Tram Simulator enthusiasts.

Attention to detail is as impressive as any hardcore sim fan could wish for. You're able to interact with all of the tram's various controls from passenger lights to ramps for wheelchair access and the weather conditions and day/night settings keep the game feeling fresh and interesting.

It's a challenging, rewarding game that is extremely addictive. I just wish that a VR mode was available. I can only dream of how immersive that would be.
