Vice CityTo earn $5 bonus per passenger boarding at bus stops marked with signs on poles, the protagonist can operate either a Bullet Bus & Coach Line or a Whippet Express Coach along either the West Island M1 or East Island M2 route (miniature route map pictured at right.) Hint: Stop with sign between wheel and door for quickest boarding. Passengers can board anywhere, but must contact the bus stop sign before boarding. There need not be passengers standing in line behind the bus stop sign pole, any NPC wandering nearby is likely to board and pay the $5 bonus fare, and there is no penalty for waiting any length of time at a stop for stragglers. When the player operates the bus, passengers do not disembark. When NPC operates three passengers often disembark from each side.
The name could be a reference to the 1980 hit new wave song Whip It by Devo, but is most likely a parody of Greyhound Bus, as the Whippet and the Greyhound are two breeds of lean dogs bred for their speed and endurance.
- There is a real-life bus company named "Whippet Coaches" (trading as "Go Whippet") based in Cambridgeshire, England.
