It's Coach DLC. Coaches generally don't stop at many bus stops, they tend to pick up in one place and then go direct to the main destination.

Sometimes they might pick up at multiple stops, but unlike buses which are city to city (and surrounded areas within a specific region) coaches are usually one stoppers. So they don't work that much different to the cargo in game. A coach in this game would be pretty much the same as a rigid truck. There's no reason to refresh old maps to make coaches work (all cities have stops) they would only need to rework maps if they plan to have coaches and buses.

We already have the required cargo market and owned trailers, we only really need tweaks to allow for multi-drops at this point. Coaches and rigid/swap bodies could in theory be pushed through the same update. The only real difference is that people as cargo will require a few extra things (comfort). The comfort thing I actually hope they extend to the live stock trailers and include more types of live stock freight.

Ah... I think you're right :D speaking about coaches. But, if there will be one destination will be good and interesting to have some terminals such as Airports, Mountain destination (panoramic), etc (something special) not just a simply bus station in city.

Oh.. what I'm talking about :lol: , it's just in my dreams :roll:

About the WoT jobs: I can confirm that jobs from Kaliningrad to other Russian cities do actually exist.
Coming back to this topic...
It seems that I got lucky twice, when I found suitable WoT jobs. In general, however, they seem to be extremely rare.

In two sessions, I think I've spent over 45 (!) minutes now, refreshing the WoT job list over and over again, trying to find jobs from Kaliningrad to mainland Russia. I understand that some city combinations just don't happen very often, but given that (a) these jobs do actually exist, and (b) there is an achievement related to them, I think it would be nice if these jobs spawned way more often than they're doing now.

If coach DLC ever happens they better not do a "Delivery passengers from Kaliningrad to any other Russian city" achievement. :|

Maybe SCS programmers pretended to create the successor of the infamous and feared "Explorer" achievement, for those who already defeated that beast. :mrgreen:

That one would be easy comparing to the "visit every bus stop on the map"
