The bus model (known as the model bus in PAL regions) is a downloadable furniture item in Animal Crossing: City Folk.

The bus model could be obtained in a letter from Nintendo if the player was connected to WiiConnect24 during the item's distribution period.

No villagers have this item in their home.


The following letter was sent alongside the bus model:

North America

Dear <player>,
Don't miss the bus! This
bus takes you to the city,
but most other buses take
you to another important
place! Happy Teacher
Appreciation Week!



Ahoy there, <player>!
Yar... I know ye love goin'
to the city, so I've sent
ye a wee model of my bus
to remind ye o' all the
fun trips we've had!

From Kapp'n
