Works with Green Cities update (1.9.*)


If you don’t downloaded this mod from Steam Workshop, I can’t help you.

I can’t ensure the downloaded version is the same from here.


The IPT mode was removed, but some functions doesn’t work if IPT2 is enabled

A shortcut to manage all city’s public transports lines. Useful for Airplane Line Tool and Ship Line Tool also.

Why reborn?

The TLM now is not a project solo, is a community project. You can contribute to improve this mod checking out the mod sources at GitHub:

Feel free to use them in another mod. Just tell what you used in your mod credits.

How does this work

The tabs of lines detail window now have a different form for each line type:

Hexagons are regular buses lines
Circles are train lines
Squares are metro/subway lines
Diamonds are ship lines. (Since 4.3)
Trapezes are tram lines. (Snowfall/Since 4.5)
Pentagons are airplane lines. (Since 5.1)
Parachutes are blimp lines. (Since 6.0)
Stars are ferry lines. (Since 6.0)
Rounded Squares are monorail lines. (Since 6.0)
Cross are evacuation bus lines. (Since 7.1.1)

And more things have changed:

The asterisk tab was removed. Now you can use the gears button to change the prefix options (prices, budgets, models…)
The factory icon button switches between the lines listing and the depot listing.

IPT Overridden Functions:

– You can choose which vehicle models will be spawned in each line (by each line since 8.0;by line prefix since 5.0)
– You can see where in the line are each vehicle in a graphic view, after accessing the line detail menu (since 4.2) and can manually set the next stop target for a vehicle dragging them (since 7.0)
– You can set an multiplier for certain lines budget (by each line since 8.0;by line prefix; Since 5.2)
– You can set the ticket price from 0.05 up to 40 C (by each line since 8.0; by line prefix since 5.3)
(Game defaults: Bus= 1; Tram, Train, Metro = 2; Ship = 5; Airplane = 10)


– You can set the budget by time of the day, in 3 hours length groups!
– You can see all integrations of lines in each station in the linear view – in the line detail panel;
– You can edit stop names directly from linear view, just click on the labels and set its name. Works for buses and trams too!
– You can see which lines serves around a building by clicking on it – with shortcuts for the line detail view;
– You can set the internal number of lines and format how it’s shown as you want too.
– You can modify many line at once putting they in the same prefix and editing its prefix options on asterisk menu (includes budget, fares and models)
– TLM have an more friendly graphical view of the city lines, in the linear view or exporting a map with the city lines (this last function is in alpha)

Important Notes

– Due the overriding done in the Tram, Ship, Bus and Passenger Train system, the option of enable/disable vehicles from these categories inside the Advanced Vehicle Options is useless for public city lines. The configuration in the TLM override it. But all other functions, like coloring, set capacity and more of AVO are still working. The model selection for external vehicles (like regional passenger ships and trains) still workin in AVO and alike mods.
– No new incompatibilities found, except the listed above.

Known Bugs

– You can’t load a second map without restart the game (Low/Won’t Fix priority)

(Alpha) Transport map exporter

When active, a Draw Map! button will appear mod options menu. When clicked, the game generates a map with the metro and train lines like the linear map style.
The html files with the map can be found at Transport Lines Manager folder inside game root folder (steamapps/common/Cities Skylines).
