Lester tells Franklin that a man will be getting on a bus and that he needs Franklin to kill him. Franklin gets a bus and starts stopping at bus stops picking up passengers. When he stops at the target's bus stop, the target senses something is wrong and makes a run for it. Franklin then chases and kills the target. A quick phone call to Lester ends the mission.

Players should be aware of the LSPD, since in this mission, police officers can be found walking the streets on foot and also can be found patrolling the streets in their police cars. If a cop car, cop, or pedestrian is hit, a wanted level star will be received, making the mission progress more challenging. An easy way to complete the level is to drive like a normal civilian and watch out for crossing pedestrians.

  • Collect the Bus from the Bus Station
  • Stop at each Bus Stop until the target is found
  • Assassinate the target
  • Leave the area

  • Running over Penny with a car eliminates the need to escape from the area as Franklin will immediately call Lester. Make sure to get off the bus a block away from Penny and then pick up a car to run him over (getting off the bus further will fail the mission).
  • The player can also snipe Penny two blocks away as well but will have to leave the area.
  • Another method to kill penny much faster is to plant a sticky bomb close to the trash can in Penny's bus stop before picking up the bus or the first passenger. Activate the bomb immediately after the third pick up since Penny won't spawn at the bus stop before that and get off the bus then leave the area quickly. The player will not see Penny get blown since he is too far away.

"In the latest of a string of shocking terrorist hits on prominent businessmen in Los Santos, venture capitalist pioneer Isaac Penny has been murdered by an assassin masquerading as a bus driver. As a result, the leverage buyout deal of Vapid Motor Company has collapsed."

"In more news for big business, visionary venture capitalist Isaac Penny has been murdered just as he was about to save the US automobile industry by taking a controlling stake in Vapid Motor Company.
