The Bus Stop is an iconic location in South Park and has appeared as a regular meeting and hanging-out place for the main characters as well as being the place the school bus picks up the children. Since its debut, the bus stop appeared in almost every episode of early seasons and all intros, but it has made fewer appearances as time has passed. However, it is still used frequently in recent episodes, mostly at the beginning.


South Park: The Stick of Truth

Main Quest

When passing the bus stop, The New Kid and Butters are ambushed by elves, who then fight.

Side Quests

A flag for the Timmy Express can be found here. When it is activated, the role of the Timmy Express is explained.

One of the homeless people the New Kid must fight is found up a path just behind the Bus Stop.



South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Main Quest

On the first day, access to Main Street is blocked here by a group of sixth graders. After the New Kid unlocks Human Kite and Super Craig as combat buddies, the three fight the Sixth Graders. After defeating them, The Coon warns that they will now be trying to fight him all round town.

Side Quests

The bus stop to the left of the Main Street path allows you to access the 3 DLCs. While Danger Deck can be accessed through the Freedom Pal base, From Dusk till Casa Bonita and Bring the Crunch can only be accessed here.

  • The boys usually stand to the right of the sign (meaning the sign stands on camera left), but this does vary from time to time.
  • The sign is of a parent and young girl running but the girl's head becomes a Visitors head for just a few seconds in the episode "Spookyfish".
  • In "Professor Chaos" when the boys were seeking a replacement for Kenny after his death in "Kenny Dies", they stand by the bus stop with the auditionees to see how the lineup looks, showing that they are aware of how iconic the image of the four characters standing by the sign is.
  • The boys most commonly stand in this order, left to right: Cartman, Kyle, Stan, then Kenny, although they may stand in this order: Kyle, Stan, Cartman, and Kenny. This can vary (as seen in the picture), sometimes depending on if one of the boys arrives later than the others.
  • The Bus Stop has appeared on the packaging for a lot of South Park merchandise and also featured in the Simpsons parody of South Park.
  • The boys' iconic Bus Stop scenes are gender-swapped in "Moss Piglets" with Wendy, Isla, Theresa, and Heidi respectively.
