WARNING: This project is not guaranteed, I could quit anytime as I am only doing this in my free time as a hobby. This could take forever, and I can cancel it at any time. Before anyone calls me out on making false "promises"

Hi, I am dipping my toes into the map modding "business" and will be modding Cayuga. This will have some extra routes that I think deserve to be in the game. I will take suggestions as long as it does not involve adding extra parts of the map (for now, I'm still figuring out the editor)

Here is a list of the routes I will be making.

Route 212 Lakeland Flyer - Collins Terminal to Darradale P&R via Roosevelt and back via Lakeland Road, Lakeland Commons, Germantown. This will be a BRT for the Lakeland community.

Route 27 Front-Market to Airport Local via Market Street, 21st Street, Oregon Ave, and follows Rt 68 from there. This will eliminate the need for a transfer at 20th-Johnston from 17 to the 68.

Route 6 30th Street Station to Airport District via Market St, 34th St, Baltimore. This is the only route that will include a new terminal. I am experimenting with the map builder, so expect AI to be buggy (road links are something I will have to figure out)
EDIT: Route 6 is on the verge of being canceled as I figured out everything BUT road links. Unless I figure this out, Route 6 will be postponed.

Route 191 Airport to Springfield Mall EXPRESS via I-95, this will be an Express Route that has no stops between. Goes straight at Industrial Hwy onto the freeway and goes straight at the I-95 and I-295 intersection

Route 140 Springfield Mall to 30th Street EXPRESS via I-95, only stopping Market Street. Springfield Mall felt like it needed a direct connection to 30th instead of 2 routes that serve the local towns of Greenville and Darrah Peak.

This is the list for now. I will be updating this if I come up with new ideas for new routes.

Routes I have completed so far:
Route 304 DIRECT Wayne Jct to Cicero-Division via City Avenue/Cicero Avenue. This will speed up the City Line Corridor and provide for express service into Keystone City.

That's not a bad concept, and trust me there's only one person around these parts that posts false promises just for clout and we all know who that is...

"Clout" is for famous youtubers, Dash. I don't have any, and I don't need any rn.

I like the ideas you have, and I must say: they will work.....most

The only routes I wouldn't see is the 212 (which is basically a express version of 217) and 191 (sounds more BRT-ish).

No it aint... It circulates around Lakeland, taking a different route on its northbound trip to Collins, unlike the 217 which by the way, has a totally different terminus than the 212, 212 being Tremont and 217 being Darradale CC. 191 does not sound BRT-ish. It is literally the exact same to the 102/150 except it has a different terminus, again.

Do you even know what you're talking about?

Obviously not. lmao so I will explain what's different.

So these are the claims:

Here's why you're wrong Lycanroc Gamer
QuoteRoute 212 Lakeland Flyer - Collins Terminal to Darradale P&R via Roosevelt and back via Lakeland Road, Lakeland Commons, Germantown. This will be a BRT for the Lakeland community.
Route 217 does NOT serve Germantown, Lakeland Commons, or Darradale Park and Ride. it goes directly onto Roosevelt, and then stays local all the way down to Darradale Community college. Darradale Park and Ride is the highway exit, which presently is only served by Lakeland route 219. The closest thing to an express version of the 217 is the Boulevard Direct, which again, goes Directly (unintentional pun) onto Roosevelt. No route from Edgewater Shopping Center (or Collins Transportation Center, for that matter) to Darradale Park and Ride presently exists. (But eh Cummins ISL, based on the video, I think you meant Tremont Park and Ride)

QuoteRoute 191 Airport to Springfield Mall EXPRESS via I-95, this will be an Express Route that has no stops between. Goes straight at Industrial Hwy onto the freeway and goes straight at the I-95 and I-295 intersection
Okay so this is a flat out express route. NON-STOP service. BRT routes operate similarly to a subway or a light rail with station stops instead of regular transit stops. The example of BRT, in this case, would be the 300 series DIRECT routes.


That said, Cummins ISL I actually admire your ideas, don't let anyone tell you that your own project is a bad idea. Honestly, I would be happy to include your concept of route 6 into 0.8, but I would have to start it somewhere other than 30th Street... since as of today I filled it to Capacity. whoops. Depending on how you feel about longer routes, I could have it instead start at 40th, travel over to 30th, and then have the rest of it follow the route that you planned.

What's your idea for the Airport? Like an employee parking lot or something like that?

So the Route 212 I felt like it was too short. I am going to extend it down to Darradale Park N Ride, and the rest of the route stays the same.

Route 6 should end at 40th-Market temporarily, and when 69th St TC comes it should go there.

The airport express routes will just use the unused bus bays currently existing.

I was thinking that 212 should just Serve Tremont and then follow 219 to darradale cc
