Build your entertainment centers as close to the exits as possible so bus routes are as short as possible - 1 or 2 clubs or fitness centers near each exit. Look closely at the number of people on each signpost and don't send more buses to them than there are people - some exits will need 4 buses while others can make do with only 1 or 2. Gradually upgrade all your buses to red. As always, don't have multiple stops on a bus route but just go from an exit to a building and back. Make sure your garage is fully upgraded and you have the maximum number of buses.

Good luck!

This level is impossible! I've got clubs and fitness centers right next to the exits with the exact number of required buses, all buses upgraded and cannot break 600! What am I doing wrong?

As with a lot of levels, it's easy but not at all obvious as to why!

I think they key is maximising but not overloading your passengers, e.g. if there are 100 passengers available, 3 2* (yellow) buses is the optimum, any more buses or higher stars starts to dilute the effect.

Here's what I did:

First bus routes
- Build the road to Soldotna and Kasilof in the bottom left of the map
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Kasilof as possible
- Route 3 of the already 2* (yellow) buses between Kasilof and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Soldotna as possible
- Route the remaining 2* (yellow) bus between Soldotna and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant and upgrade it to 3* (red)

Second bus routes
- Build the road to Cohoe and Kalifornsky in the bottom right of the map
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Kalifornsky as possible
- Upgrade the Garage
- Build 4 buses, route them between Kalifornsky and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant and upgrade them all to 2* (yellow)
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Cohoe as possible
- Upgrade the Garage
- Build 3 buses, route them between Cohoe and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant and upgrade them all to 2* (yellow)

Environment
- Build the road to Ridgeway and Kenai in the top right of the map
- Build a Hospital and a Fire Station in the centre of the map, away from any of your bus routes and upgrade them to maximum when you can
- Build a Park in the centre of the map, away from any of your bus routes (you should get the Environment goal now)
- Build Tech Centres to cover your bus routes

Final Bus Routes
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Kenai as possible
- Build 1 bus, route it between Kenai and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant and upgrade it to 3* (red)
- Construct a Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant as close to Ridgeway as possible
- Upgrade the Garage
- Build 4 buses, route them between Ridgeway and your Fitness Centre/Club/Restaurant and upgrade them all to 2* (yellow)

That should do it!

This one can be done very easy.
It's all about creating space you don't have when starting the mission. If buses have a starting point and a destination they don't need to be connected to the garage. So we'll exploit that ! The screenshot on following link ( hope it's allowed on BFG forums ) will show the few easy steps to complete this mission in 6 minutes !

STEP 01 :

* Build a road straight down connecting Cohoe & Kalifornsky.
* Build a shoppingmall near Cohoe.
* Send 3 Buses heading between Cohoe and the shoppingmall.

STEP 02 :

* Once they are on route on the short stretch : Delete a small part of the road between the mall and Cohoe-exit so the buses can't go anywhere !
* Delete the mall and build a stadium instead. Reroute your buses to the stadium.

STEP 03 :

* Send 4 buses heading between Kalifornsky and the same stadium ( add a little road to shorten the track ).

STEP 04:

* Once the 4 buses from Kalifornsky are on route : delete the road behind the stadium and build a museum there. Reroute the 4 buses from Kalifornsky to the museum.

STEP 05 :

* Build a road to the right connecting Kenai & Ridgeway.
* Build a stadium near Kenai.
* Send 2 buses heading between Kenai and the stadium, and 4 buses between Ridgeway and the stadium.
* Once these 6 buses are on route : delete the road next to the stadium and build a museum there.
* Reroute the 4 buses from Ridgeway to the museum.


NOTE : Cash will be piling up very fast. So upgrade your garage and buses during the mission and build 2 parks anywhere to meet the environmental criterium.

Hi - build the best Entertainment building you can - Fitness Centre/Club instead of the Stadium.
