LBS Marg




Brushed out.

BEST buses have this unique destination display. The canvas sheet with destinations and numbers painted on them and the conductor or driver has to crank it up and down. But that's soon going to be a thing from the past. The new buses have electronic LED displays.

For some reason, I always get a great kick out of sitting in the seat next to the number window. No more, I guess. Do the new buses have LED displays on the sides above the door like the ones in Bangalore?

The BEST bus route displays & your blog post titles are the only places that use the little known official names of the street. BTW the it's a cloth sheet (canvas), not rubber.

The LED side display is in the same place. Below the window, next to the door. So you can still sit next to the number display.

Thank you, MJ. I have corrected the mistake.

And yes, I stick to the official names and I put the popular name in brackets.

I 've seen the new displays. Somehow like the older ones shown above, still.
The pic makes it seem vintage already. :(

@grantmebookshelves: That may be due to the fact that that seat's over the tyre, and it towers over all the other seats. I used to like it too, but these days the ladies seat at the front beckons a lot. :)
