The Tourbus (formerly Tour Bus) is a bus featured in Grand Theft Auto: London 1969, Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Brute in the HD Universe.


Grand Theft Auto London

The design of the bus in both Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 is evidently based on that of the Double Decker (albeit slightly wider and shorter), which in turn is based on a Routemaster, but features an open top deck, complete with visible passengers on the seat. Like the Double Decker, the bus is also constantly painted red.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Tourbus returns in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, with a much different design, based on real life tour buses operating in Los Angeles (bearing a similar color and scheme from those of Access Hollywood Tours).

The Tourbus is depicted as a minibus with a similar design to the first generation Burrito, featuring a large, wider compartment on the back with extra seats (similar to the Rental Shuttle Bus). Being a Brute vehicle, it is closely related to the Ambulance and the Camper.

The Tourbus is available in an all-blue color, marked with "Vinewood Tours" and "12 amazing ports of call!" marked on the doors. In the enhanced version, the number 12 was changed to 20. The van appears with a Light Smoke window tint applied by default.[1]

The Tourbus may appear either in an "open-top" form, which exposes the rear section from the sides and roof, or in a "closed-in" form, having large windows on the sides. The Tourbus also has two extra doors for access to the rear compartment, although they do not seem functional. [citation/verification needed]

Grand Theft Auto London

The Tour Bus' performance is the same as that of the Double Decker, being poorer than that of the Coach in Grand Theft Auto, but exactly the same as the Coach in Grand Theft Auto: London 1969. Being the one of the heaviest vehicles in the game (the same weight as GTA and GTA London 1969's Coaches and the Double Decker), the bus is predictably slow, with a very poor top speed but average acceleration. The bus also possesses below average grip and handling, and average braking. Although game files reveal the bus has a lucrative base export value of £1,000, the Tour Bus cannot be exported due to its large size.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle performs poorly in all areas of handling; due to its size and weight, acceleration and top speed are mediocre. Handling leaves much to be desired, as it has a very wide turning radius and it suffers from understeer. Its soft suspension also leads to excessive body roll. Durability is average, as the bus can withstand a fair amount of abuse before its engine fails, and it can ram other cars off the road quite easily.

The vehicle appears to be powered by a transversely laid, double overhead camshaft Inline-4, the sound emitted when at idle and accelerating sounds like a typical low-revving diesel engine. This would be vital considering how heavy the vehicle is.
