"Is there a more iconic image than a Dashound coach broken down at the side of the road in some armpit of the Midwest? Own a true slice of Americana, then put in a stripper pole and turn it into a party bus."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Brute Dashound is a coach featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. The Dashhound was meant to be featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but it was cut for unknown reasons.


It is a large, blue and white coach. The vehicle's name, as well as a picture of a dachshund, are on the sides of the coach. The coach also has a red and blue front bumper.

Unlike the Bus, it is rounded and has a more modern appearance, though it's still boxy on the sides and has just one door on the right, where passengers enter to sit.



GTA V + Online


  • It is very similar to the Coach, which has only appeared in the 3D Universe games, with the exception of GTA IV's beta.
  • It is the game's counterpart to Greyhound Lines.
  • It is based on the real life MCI Renaissance E series bus.
  • Its name is possibly one of  multiple plays; One is "Das hund" which is literally "The Dog" in German, which people have referred to riding Greyhound as "Riding The Dog".
  • The other is the common mispronouncing of "Dachshund" as "Dash-hound".
  • Another would be "Greyhound" as the coach is a satire of Greyhound.
  • The Dashound has its own station in Textile City near Simmet Alley. However, instead of the station being used by Dashound coaches, it is used as a bus station for the buses of Los Santos. This station is also encountered in the mission The Bus Assassination
  • The Dashound was originally a vehicle meant to appear in GTA San Andreas, however it was removed for unknown reasons. Found in files as "dach.txd", it had GTA III truck wheels, different lights and a California number plate.
  • The Dashound was modelled for GTA IV as a Coach bus. This model didn't make it into the game, but it was reused for GTA V featuring minor changes. The beta model was larger and has grey schemes.
  • There is a mistake in GTA V, when the player enters the bus the name is misspelled "Dashhound" instead of Dashound.
  • There's a rare glitch where if you steal a loaded Dashound, then leave it far away from the driver and walk away, the same driver will respawn on the vehicle and drive like nothing happened. Also, there is a glitch where the vehicle's wheels will move themselves from side to side, even with no driver. Same as the Bus.
  • Close inspection reveals that the Dashound dog is showing its penis.
  • This is one of the rare vehicles to let the player use the Sawn-off Shotgun, excluding bikes, the Blazer and the Caddy.
  • If the vehicle falls on its side, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to lift back up on its wheels.
