"There's been a clerical error down in the deepest recesses of the Civic Citadel. A group of outstanding civilians - voters - have been mistakenly taken into LCPD custody."
Thomas Stubbs III

Off Route is a mission in The Lost and Damned given by Thomas Stubbs III to Johnny Klebitz.


Johnny meets Stubbs at his gentleman's club. In the steam room, Stubbs explains that some white-collar criminals have been charged with insider trading and are being transported in a Prison Bus. Stubbs needs Johnny to "liberate" these prisoners. Johnny, after almost passing out in the steam room, leaves and heads to the police station. Once at the police station, Johnny fights his way in and hijacks the prison bus. Ater losing the police, Johnny drives the bus to the docks in southern Alderney and releases the prisoners. The prisoners board Dinghys and head to the open sea, whilst the Prison Bus is dumped into the sea. Johnny phones Stubbs to inform him that the prisoners have been "liberated", and expresses a sarcastic fear for the prisoners due to one of them being a cannibal. Stubbs thanks Johnny and the mission is completed.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get to the prison transport bus location

  • This is one of two missions in which the Prison Bus appears, though this is the only one where it can be obtained and driven.
  • A unique turquoise Rhapsody can be found across the street from the Jousters Club after the opening cutscene. It can be saved by parking it at Niko Bellic's penthouse in Middle Park and continuing the mission in another vehicle. After the mission is completed, a Stallion is parked on the Alderney docks.
  • The last prisoner on the right side of the Prison Bus will have his foot passing through the rear fender. This can be noticeable when reversing the Prison Bus or braking, seeing how the prisoner's foot is hidden by the rear wheel.
  • During the mission Niko, Packie, Derrick, and Michael rob the Bank of Liberty, The Ballad of Gay Tony starts.
  • Depending of the path choosen by the player, some unique roadblocks can be seen. These paths are: Leading to the Plumbers Skyway by Rand Avenue (five police cars); to the Catskill Avenue and Panhandle Road intersection, the one that's under the skyway (two police cars); to the Bridger Street and Tenmile Street intersection (three police cars) and two roadblocks on the intersections between Sacramento Avenue with Beaverhead Avenue and Owl Creek Avenue (four police cars, two for each intersection).
  • Much like Action/Reaction, Johnny can actually call Billy after reading his text message after this mission.
  • This mission is similar to GTA IV mission Tunnel of Death.
