The Bus is a civilian bus found in DayZ.

The Bus has a maximum on-road speed of 70 kilometers per hour and a maximum off-road speed of 28 kilometers per hour.

Its fuel tank capacity is 100 liters - equal to five Jerry Can (20L)s or twenty Fuelcan (5L)s.

The Bus has a seating capacity of twenty-four players[1], and has space for fifty items, ten weapons and two backpacks.[2]

The Bus has no armament and minimal armor. The glass of the Bus offers little protection from projectiles and the metal hull offers some projection from projectiles.

A round as small as 9x19mm can injure the driver through the hull.

The Bus has six spawn locations in Chernarus. These are:[3]
