"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.

  • 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 unique lime-green Stallion is parked on the Alderney docks, which can be saved at the player's safehouse.
  • The Prison Bus cannot be resprayed.
  • Similarly with Liberty City Choppers, completing this mission will make you lose the Prison Bus as it is trashed at the end of the mission.
  • The Prison Bus can be saved at a safehouse but the player would have to fail the mission to do this.
