Warning! Don’t start this mission until completion of the last story mission and don’t forget to save the game before performing it. Don’t make any investments before starting the mission.


After the call, head to the marked point and collect the bus. Don’t use any weapons and don’t attract police attention before you meet the target because it leads to the mission failure.

You need to stop at three bus stops before you meet the target. Don’t hit pedestrians when you have passengers in the bus. Otherwise, the mission will be failed.

At the fourth bus stop, Isaac Penny will enter the bus and then try to escape on a bicycle. To get the gold medal, you need to kill him using the bus. Use Franklin’s special ability to ease this.

When the target will be eliminated, exit the bus and leave the crime scene. Franklin will call Lester, and the mission will be completed.

Shares Sale and Purchase After the Mission

Right after the end of the mission buy Vapid shares by all three protagonists. To do this, open the web browser on your phone or another device, click on “Money and Services”, next click on BAWSAQ, go to “Markets”, find Vapid (VAP) in the list and buy as many shares as you can. It’s advisable to keep a few thousand dollars for taxi services and other small expenses.

The price of these shares will grow about twice within 72 in-game hours, after which they have to be sold. Go to the LCN or BAWSAQ website, select the “My Portfolio” section and click the “Sell All” button.

Note: data on the change of the share prices are relevant for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On PS3 and Xbox 360, you can earn more. The game updates can also affect the state of affairs.

Stock Exchanges in GTA V

There are two of them — LCN and BAWSAQ. Like most stock exchanges in the real world, they are closed on weekends. It’s possible to buy and sell shares on Saturday and Sunday, but their price will not change until Monday.

You need to be online to use BAWSAQ. If it’s not available, postpone the assassination and try again in a few hours of real-time.


  • It’s not necessary to go to bed several times to advance the time while you holding the shares. You can, for example, participate in some miscellaneous activities.
  • You can use any suitable bus to perform this mission, not only the one marked on the map.
