Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit Pulls in to the Station in May
Paradox Interactive, a publisher that sometimes goes off-track, and genuine bona-fide electrified six-car developer Colossal Order today announced that “Mass Transit”, the next expansion for Cities: Skylines, will be available on May 18th. Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit brings a blimp-load of new features to to the critically acclaimed city-builder, including new public transportation options such as monorails, cable-cars, ferries, and most majestic of all, blimps!
Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit will feature:
- The Road to Riches: Ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails help move your citizens around town, and get their money into your city’s coffers.
- Home is where the Hub is: The transit hub connects all your transit together, letting citizens ail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train-metro station.
- The Traffic Must Flow: New scenarios will test your traffic management skills and transit system vision. New road types, bridges and canals adds variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
- New Hats for Chirper: No expansion is complete without some new hats for fictional birds!

Part of the free update that’s coming out alongside Mass Transit, this is an excellent change, as Colossal Order are finally addressing the day to day carnage on the streets of your city.
A new traffic management section in the info panels lets you get up close and personal with the challenges of traffic flow. You can now bring up a “traffic routes” view that shows all the traffic that’s flowing through a particular section of road, or pick an individual vehicle and see the particular route it’s taking. It really lets you see why a particular junction is always a congested mess and plan accordingly.
At the same time, you can now zoom in and modify each and every junction with traffic lights and/or stop signs, shaping the flow of traffic. If you want to prioritise a particular route, this is ideal for managing how traffic gets onto a roundabout or whether cars have to give way to those pulling out. As someone that’s often left scratching their head at what on earth is going on with my traffic, this one’s a great addition.
