The bus stop is an area in the player's town and in the city in City Folk. It is located near the town gate and sits behind the fountain and allows the player to go to the city. On the first day the bus will not come, unless the work at Tom Nooks is completed. The bus does also not come if there is a villager or snowball in its path. If a player builds a snowman in the middle of the paved area next to the bus stop, they will have to wait four days until it melts to go to the city again. Kapp'n drives the bus to the city.
If a player has a friend over, they cannot take the bus to the city, saying "The bus won't be coming for a while." Upon talking to villagers near the bus stop, their conversations may revolve around the bus and the city, by saying they are checking the times. Villagers will also mention going to the city, but are never seen.
