This Cities Skylines Transit Systems guide can help you to create efficient transit systems in Cities Skylines, and will teach you the civil engineering basics you’ll need to keep traffic manageable and your citizens happy.
Cities Skylines Transit Systems Guide
Using these roads will keep everyone happier, but beware, they do cost more.
Keeping an effective flow of traffic is essential, so here’s how
Highways: You may be tempted to not use highways in your city, but if you use them right, they can be a valuable resource to you. To exit off of a highway, build your roads in a bridge over, and add the appropriate ramps
Busy Intersections: Sometimes, an intersection will cause a lot of traffic jams. The solution may be a roundabout. Roundabouts are very efficient intersections, so you may want to use them in the middle of your city where you have a lot of traffic.
Road Layout: When you plan your roads, you should make sure to have larger roads running throughout the city, delivering traffic onto progressively smaller roads. Making a grid of squares may be your first idea for a city layout, and while the most space efficient, it isn’t necessarily the best option. another space efficient way is to use larger blocks with a roundabout in the middle, laid out in a weave pattern. the system is completely modular, meaning it can be as large as you want just by repeating this pattern.
