The Bus Assassination is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by Lester Crest from a public payphone in Hawick, Los Santos.
Franklin answers a public payphone in Hawick and Lester Crest tells him his next target is Isaac Penny, a 'ruthless vulture capitalist' about to purchase Vapid Motor Company resulting in thousands of employees losing their jobs. Lester tells Franklin that Penny takes the same bus to and from his office everyday and that he could take over the route. Lester suggests that Franklin not purchase any Vapid stock until the purchase falls through before Franklin hangs up. Franklin drives to the Dashound Bus Center in Textile City and enters the bus, driving out of the bus center. Franklin then drives the bus on its normal route stopping at Strawberry Ave, San Andreas Ave, Adam's Apple Blvd and San Andreas Ave again where Isaac Penny gets on the bus. Franklin tells him it will cost him $1.50, which Penny calls a 'fare hike' and gets off the bus. Penny then steals a womans bike as she uses an ATM and cycles away with Franklin giving chase in the bus. Franklin warns the passengers to hold on as he kills Penny by driving the bus into the bicycle Penny is riding. Frankin gets out of the bus and leave the area as the bus passengers continue screaming after it was used to kill Penny. As he escapes he phones Lester and informs him he has killed Penny.
