hello

this is my idea for a city/town set for a better Lego bus.

the vehicles are built in modules to allow custom changes that a person may want for their bus.  the modular design also makes it possible to make longer buses using more sets since they have extra pieces for doing so.  the sets will include alternate instructions for making the buses into longer articulated buses for Bus Rapid Transit systems in a city.  these sets will be cheap since each set only has about 213 bricks in it.  don't let the number of bricks fool you, however, as the set will still have good playability.  some of the features that the bus has is a folding chair for a wheelchair to be seated as well as the ability to customize the vehicles with more ease.  when two or more sets are combined for one big articulated bus, theres even more playability because the bus now pivots at a joint or two.  theres also the extra pieces that you get from just one set that can go towards other projects if needed.  my goal is to get to about 1000 supporters on this project, if not enough to make it a real set that everyone can enjoy.

I appreciate the attempt.

But I think we're going to have to work on color coordination a little and improve on the platform some. Perhaps you should look at some bus MOCs on YouTube or take influence from City sets number 60026, 60154 and 60200. 

I honestly would like more buses. Except for the 2011 Public Transport and 2017 Bus Station sets, buses are exclusive to the mega sets. My hope was for either an entire public transport subtheme for City or a city bus as a member of the 2021 Great Vehicles lineup. Unfortunately most people on here think both the former and latter are unlikely.

the platforms are meant to be a little spartan so that builders can customize them their way, and the colors will be better when the set is produced.  its just hard working with limited resources 

and the bus is only part of the modular transit vehicle subtheme im working on, it will include other sets that i put up later such as trams, subways, monorails, etc...

Oh... Limited brick issue? 

If so, try LDD. You can do something much better there.

No way of getting LDD

LEGO has discontinued the service and I cannot download it because of it

Huh? 

You can download and use it just fine, they are just not updating it anymore.

You don't use it on the browser, it's a separate app. You can also try Stud.io

I installed it to the device itself, not the browser, just the device itself runs on Chrome OS

and I will try stud.io. Thank you for the alternative

Stud.io requires that other things be downloaded to open it, but those other things that it asks for do not work with it
