I once saw a 161 Bridlewood trip as a D60LF and the route number was the size of the first line of the front display (which at the time was 161 Bridlewood / Hazeldean), with a blank area under the number... needless to say, it was very tough to read.

You haven't seen anything until you see STO route 39 Freeman on a hybrid. The font is 7 pixels high for the destination AND the route and it's ALL CAPS! (That may change with the announced destination sign update happenning on monday (the 39 destinations are being changed)

I spotted 5052 yesterday afternoon on route 23 Rothwell Heights. The rear route marker was showing "ights" at the time.

I've noticed on Ottawa Transit (Android) it will show DD on the main screen for some Hybrid trips. But when I click on Trip info it will read DD Diesel Electric Hybrid.

I use Bus Buddy on iOS (and I have the official OC Transpo app too), and there isn't a way to see the full text of the type of bus being used... it doesn't even say DD, it shows a double decker icon.

4603 appears to have a full bus wrap for a health food store. (Currently on the 88)

Could @Enviro_1203 confirm if its a full wrap?

A bus is a rolling billboard and a brand new bus is usually the most reliable billboard.

Why not?

New buses are more likely to be in service all day, so maximum exposure for advertisers!
