                             1.1  Introduction
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I was reading through FAQs and guides out there and I realized there
    isn't much text devoted to the infinite routes in Simpsons Road Rage.
    Although there are some routes in the general FAQs and guides, they
    are few and are scattered all over.
    
    What is an infinite route, you ask? Well, it's just the best thing
    since fried Twinkies. An infinite route is a source of money that
    never runs out. You can drive around in a constantly repeating path
    and never run out of time, thereby gaining insane amounts of cash.
    
    So, here it is. All known infinite routes are in this guide, and
    anybody who discovered the route is credited.
    
    You should know that this guide is for the Gamecube version of
    Simpsons Road Rage. The infinite routes in this guide may not work
    with the PS2 and Xbox versions.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                     1.2  Importance of Infinite Routes
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The objective of Simpsons Road Rage is to obtain one million dollars
    and buy the Transit Corporation from Mr. Burns. One million dollars
    is a lot of cash, and if you just drive around aimlessly and pick up
    anybody, you will be playing for a LONG time.
    
    To avoid the years it will take to get the cash normally, we use
    infinite routes. You can average around eight thousand to ten
    thousand dollars without infinite routes. Some people have been
    known to get from two hundred thousand dollars to the whole million
    with infinite routes.
    
    'Nuff said.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                          1.3  Infinite Route Tips
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. Whenever you make a tight turn, always hold the B or Y button as
    you make the turn. The technique takes some time to master, but once
    you do you'll be making the turns like some guy who, uh, makes turns
    real good... 
    
    2. The Z button can be used whenever you accidentally flip over.
    Press Z to have the car right-side up again.  
    
    3. Another good tip is to use the best possible car, meaning the
    fastest. I like to use Professor Frink because he is, in my opinion,
    fast and has excellent turns. 
    
    Other good candidates are Apu, Snake, and Grampa.
    
    4. Practice in the Sunday Drive mode if you want to get experience
    without running out of time.
    
    5. While on the road, try and knock over any Burns Transit bus stops.
    You will get an extra 2 seconds for each one knocked over.
    
    6. Sometimes you may get a Road Rage or Safe Trip bonus after picking
    someone up. Don't try the Road Rage bonuses because they are a major
    waste of time. The Safe Trip bonuses are easy to accomplish, so go
    for those.

                         VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    Drive ahead and pick up the first person in front of you, who will
    want to go to the Kwik-E-Mart. Drive straight up the hill and follow
    the street, then go down the next hill. The Kwik-E-Mart will be
    right in front.
    
    Drive down the hill and don't pick up anybody. Take the left branch
    when you reach the intersection and pick up the first person you
    see on the right. They will be waiting on the corner.
    
    This person will want to go to either the Simpsons' house, Milhouse's
    house, or the President's house. All three of these locations are
    back where you started, so drive back up the hill and into the
    neighborhood again.
    
    After you have dropped the person at their destination, pick up the
    first person you picked up to go back to the Kwik-E-Mart and repeat
    the route.

    Evergreen Terrace: starting with Kwik-E-Mart, then the School or 
    Willie's Shack, Church, Lovejoy's house, then pick anyone until you
    get 2 Grocery store, Wiggum or Ralph, Simpson/Flanders/Milhouse's
    home. Rinse, repeat.

                        2.2  Entertainment District

                       Entertainment District Route 1

                       VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    You start next to Moe's Tavern, so pick up the person on your right
    that is across the street from Moe's. This person will want to go
    to the She-She Lounge, Duff Brewery, or Rusty Barnacle.
    
    If you dropped the person at the Rusty Barnacle, bust a U-turn and
    go back near the Duff Brewery. Now, from here go down the street and
    you'll see a green banner with a person standing under it. This
    person will want to go back to Moe's Tavern or King Toot's Music
    Store. Cut through the alley across the street from the person to
    get there quickly.
    
    So, that's it. Pick up the person in front of Moe's again to use the
    infinite route. Eventually you may not be able to make it to the
    Rusty Barnacle, so you can stop going there.

                            2.3  Springfield Dam
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

                         +-----------------------+
                          Springfield Dam Route 1
                         +-----------------------+
                          VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    When you start off you'll see three people on your right. Pick up
    the person farthest away from you, standing on the corner of that
    little grass island. The person will want to go to Kamp Krusty. 
    
    As you go up the street, remember there's a shortcut up the hill
    under that Burns Transit billboard. When you get to the area with
    the outhouse and K-Radio buildings, take the right branch down the
    hill, then at the bottom take a sharp right so you end up driving in
    the water. Drive all the way across and drop off the person at Kamp
    Krusty. 
    
    Next up will be someone wanting to go to the Builder's Shack. To go
    there just take the road on top of the dam and take the right branch
    at the end, up the hill. This part is VERY important. You must finish
    this part as quickly as possible to get the most money. You may not
    see it at first, but after you're around 20,000, you'll see what I
    mean. 
    
    Someone will want to go to Rancho Relaxo now. Drive back down the hill
    and when you get to the bottom, make a U-turn to the right, so you
    end up going down the path on the right. On the right side of the
    cliff there's a cave covered by hanging moss. Drive through the cave,
    then make a left down the street. Go straight through the grassy area
    with no fence to drop and take shortcut down the hill. Drop the
    person off at Rancho Relaxo.
    
    Next up pick up the person on the right of the road. They'll be
    wanting to go to the TNT Storage. Drive back up the hill and go back
    through the cave to drop the person off. 
    
    The next person will want to go all the way back to the Stonecutters'
    Lodge. Drive straight up the hill ahead of the TNT Storage and follow
    the street back to the Stonecutters' Lodge, then pick up the person
    from the same spot you started at. Repeat the steps again to have
    the infinite route.

    When you start off you'll see three people on your right. Pick up
    the person farthest away from you, standing on the corner of that
    little grass island. The person will want to go to Kamp Krusty.

    hill, then at the bottom take a sharp right so you end up driving in
    the water. Drive all the way across and drop off the person at Kamp
    Krusty. 
    
    Drive back into the lake and pick up the person on that little
    island.
    
    Someone will want to go to Rancho Relaxo now. Drive across the dam
    and take the path on the left. On the right side of the cliff there's
    a cave covered by hanging moss. Drive through the cave, then make a
    left down the street. Go straight through the grassy area with no
    fence to drop and take shortcut down the hill. Drop the person off
    at Rancho Relaxo.
    
    Next up pick up the person on the left of the road, near the flipped
    truck. They'll be wanting to go to the Mayor Quimby's house. Drive
    back up the hill and go back through the cave to drop the person off. 
    
    The next person will want to go all the way back to the Stonecutters'
    Lodge. Drive straight up the hill ahead of the TNT Storage and follow
    the street back to the Stonecutters' Lodge, then pick up the person
    from the same spot you started at. Repeat the steps again to have
    the infinite route.

    A route from Phil Rosenbaum:
    
    Though it takes some time cause the routes are so close, you
    actually increase your game time! I got about 6 mins added from this
    route. Anyway, here it is.
     
    As soon as you start, pick up the first person on the right, they
    will want to go to the main gate at the plant. Pick up the person
    right in front of the gate, they will want to go to the Turbines or
    the Fuel Rod Storage.
     
    I'm splitting up the guide, cause each route is different.
     
    Turbine Route.  Pick up the person in front of the turbines, they
    will want to go to the Cutoff Valve or the Parking lot. If you take
    them to the cutoff valve, DO NOT pick up anybody there, instead drive
    back around and pick up the person from that same spot. If you know
    the person is going to the valve again, turn around as you approach
    so you face the valve route. Reverend Lovejoy will go to both places
    so watch out. If they go to the parking lot, just pick up the person
    from the front gate.
     
    Fuel Rod route.  Pick up the person in between the pipe mesh. They
    will want to go to the Generators, the Office, or the Mall. If you go
    to the Generators of the Office, just go to the gate and pick up that
    person and repeat. If they go to the Mall, pick up the person to the
    left of the entrance. They will want to go to the Baseball Diamond or
    the Community Center. Then drive back to the gate and repeat the
    process.

                               2.5  Downtown

                              VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    Drive to the Hospital. Pick up the person standing in front. This
    person will want to go to either City Hall or the County Courthouse.
    Both of these destinations are very close by, with the City Hall
    being just right across the street. Once you've dropped off your
    passenger at either one of these locations, quickly drive back up
    the Hospital's driveway and pick up the person waiting there to
    repeat the loop.

                         2.6  Springfield Mountains

                       VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    First pick up the person right in front of you who wants to go to the
    Tire Fire. Drive up the hill and you'll quickly see the spot.
    
    Next up is someone who might want to stop at Inspiration Point before
    you proceed to the Gold House. Just follow the hand down the street
    and you'll see it easily. Then pick up the next person to go to the
    Gold House.
    
    Someone will then be standing next to a bus stop, the person closest
    to you. Take the person back up the road to the World's Largest Toilet.
    
    Pick up the person standing next to the "WORLD'S LARGEST TOILET"
    sign and take him back down the street and up a hill road on the
    right to the Cemetery.
    
    At this point someone may want to go up to Burns' Mansion before you
    go to Springfield Gorge. Drive up the hill and pick up the next
    person.
    
    Drive down the right side and through the tunnel. After you pass the
    tunnel you have to make a big leap across the gorge, so make sure you
    have someone fast and have enough speed to make it over.
    
    Pick up anyone in this area to go to the Gas Station. Take the dirt
    road on the left of the parking lot and follow it back to the main
    road. Take the tunnel on the right to find the place.
    
    Someone here may want to stop at KBBL radio first, so follow the
    hand up the street and take a left at Inspiration Point to drop him
    off at KBBL.
    
    From here just go back to the Tire Fire and repeat the process.

                       VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    Follow the street and take the right branch at the Tire Fire. Go
    straight down this road until you reach the gorge. Pick up the person
    at the end of the tunnel.
    
    This person will want to go to the other side of the gorge. Make the
    jump across and drop off the person, then press Z to return to the
    other side.
    
    Back up and pick up that person again to repeat the process and have
    the infinite route.

                       VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
    
    You go forward till you can see the Largest Toilet through the arch,
    and pick up the person on the right side of the road before you do.
    They will wanna go to the Gold House. Take them there and pick up
    the person that would be on the right side of the road if you didnt
    turn around. They will wanna go the the Toilet. Repeat.
