Firetruck U-DRIVE

Firetruck in U-Drive It mode

This is a list of U-Drive It missions available in SimCity 4: Rush Hour.

The missions usually give either simoleons, raise (or lower) the player's mayor rating, or unlock a new building. There are only 2 free vehicles, and those are the Ice Cream Truck and the Get Away Van (although their missions are unavailable until the player have the correct prerequisites.)

The player needs a My Sim in order to drive a civilian car, aside from the mission Freedom of Expression. Vehicles in the game have a health limit on how many collisions before exploding. Certain vehicles have different resistance to damage, the most highly resistant are military vehicles such as the tank, and 3-wheelers and motorcycles are at the bottom. Their health is indicated by the Plumbob hovering above the vehicle. The player loses if the car get destroyed or run out of time. The objective is marked by a bulls-eye.

Italics denote evil missions, which gives simoleons at the cost of mayor rating.
