    Modes
    
    -Arcade Rules: Follows the rules of the arcade version, where you must 
    pick people up and drop them off to gain extra time.
    -Drive For 3 Minutes: Lets you drive around the city for 3 minutes at 
    your own pace. Also lets you pick people up.
    -Drive For 5 Minutes: The same as above only this time you can drive for 
    5 minutes.
    -Drive For 10 Minutes: Same as the other 2 but you can drive for 10 
    minutes.
    
    
    This level is the same as the Arcade. Many people feel that this level 
    is put together better than the original one. I feel they're both fun.

    I believe this is the tougher of the two courses. Mainly because of the 
    water on the port area of the city.
