This is the step by step method I used to get the 50 survivors and some relevant information about each one. It is divided up into "Trips" which are the time between leaving the Safe House and returning. If you follow this exactly as it's written you should be able to get all the survivors and do the main story together without any real difficulty although there are a couple of spots where the timing can get a bit tight.
Obviously this has to be done all in the same playthrough.

Tips:
Save often, at the very least each time you complete a Trip, and alternate between at least 2 of the save files just in case anything goes wrong.
Take the Leadership magazine from inside One Little Duck Bingo, it supposedly makes survivors more effective although I haven't really noticed. It does make some of the survivors that would usually need to be carried or helped to walk able to run like everybody else.
Remember that there can be a combined total of 8 survivors in your party and loose around the city at any one time. If you're expecting a Case or random survivors to appear and they don't it may be because there aren't enough free spaces for them, in which case you need to bring some of the current survivors back to the Safe House. If you follow my guide exactly and don't waste any time you shouldn't have to worry about this. Also remember that a Case or random survivors won't appear while you're in the same area as they would be.
Check out the info I have included for each survivor before heading out for the relevant Trip to make sure you know exactly where you're going and what you might need to do when you get there. If the survivor requires something to join like a drink or food try to grab it on the way there to save time.


Trip 1:

Get the Zombrex for Katey.

Pick up Denyce.

Return to the Safe House.

Denyce Info – Found inside Roy’s Mart in the Royal Flush Plaza while getting Zombrex for Katey at the beginning of the game. Joins after you kill the looters.

Trip 3:

***You will need to be very quick on this Trip to get back to the Safe House before Case 1-4 expires. Taming Snowflake is a pain in the arse and the main spot where a lot of time could be lost so if you're a bit unsure I suggest you spend some time practising before the main run.***

She also shows you the shortcut between Brand New U and the Royal Flush Plaza bathrooms which makes escorting a lot of the remaining survivors considerably easier.

Allison Info – Found during the Case “One Hit Wonder” at the stage in the Slot Ranch Casino from around 3pm on Day 3. Won’t join until Bibi’s performance is over.

Cameron Info – Found during the Case “One Hit Wonder” at the stage in the Slot Ranch Casino from around 3pm on Day 3. Won’t join until Bibi’s performance is over.

Bibi and her entourage will raise the total number of survivors to exactly 50 and the achievement should unlock as soon as you get them to the Safe House. Hooray!

It's worth pointing out that there are at least 8 more survivors between the end of the guide and the end of the game so if you miss someone or just really don't want to bother taming Snowflake or wasting 2 Zombrexes on Jared that's fine, you can make up for it later.
