    NEW YORK 2012 01 05 — Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order are taking its innovative transportation-sim game, Cities in Motion, on a coast-to-coast tour of the United States. In Cities in Motion: U.S. Cities, an expansion pack coming out the 17th of January, two iconic American locations will join the mix, allowing players to challenge their civic planning skills in both San Francisco and New York.
    Both cities will be available to play in campaign and sandbox mode, and will include new vehicles, new transportation types, and plenty of new American buildings, landmarks, and commuters.

    View the Cites in Motion: U.S. Cities Announcement Trailer here:



    In Cities in Motion: U.S. Cities, players will have a chance to try and serve the City by the Bay, as the city’s colorful citizens and tourists alike cross the Golden Gate and ride SF’s famous cable cars, a new addition to players’ transport options. Or, they can try to tackle the traffic in the Big Apple, making use of trolley buses as they move harried New Yorkers, and the just as harried cab drivers, from borough to borough.

    So something with specific vehicle type are trolleybuses and cable cars, not just two new metrotrain skins.

    Hmm, Cable Cars seems normal trams, and trolley buses, is this a variant of trams?
    Is it possible to build "cable cars", and "trolley buses" on the same place like a street?

    As a SF Bay Area resident I am thrilled to see "Baghdad By The Bay" being introduced to this game I love so much!

    I think you're right, the Cable Car is just the tram renamed for the San Francisco map. To my mind this is a cable car. As for the trolley bus, i guess that will replace the tram only in New York (like the Monorail did in Tokyo)?

    Looks good!

    This should be interesting!

    It's just a pity that the Steam coupons don't work on stuff released in 2012, so hopefully this will be a decent price.

    Looks great but as a New Yorker, I'm more than a bit underwhelmed. New York City is all about the hustle & bustle of the subways, elevateds, commuter rail roads and thousands of buses. NYC has not a single trolley line and the politics over here would never allow for one.

    Now what would have been nice is if the trolley lines and elevateds play a large role in the early scenarios, but later on it's all about the subways & buses almost exclusively. A little more research and this would have been an awesome expansion pack. I was hoping at the least for a new type of subway station that you can place directly beneath the street a la NYC, with exits on both sides.

    Trolley bus - YES! Hopefully it can be adapted to use on all maps. And thank you for having overhead wires for it as well. Day 1 for me.

    But San Francisco is real realistic, if I can use Bus, TrollyBus, CableCar, Tram and Metro all together on the Map. If not, I'm very disappointed.

    I agree. It would be nice to have the metro stations be placed beneath the streets with two entrances like the elevated station. I hope there is a NYC subway type and not the BART system. At least there's some American building types. I noticed they included the "cruciform" housing project type tenement that's so common in NYC.
