I'm being picky here, but the ad-wrapping decals on these buses could have been done better... The white outlines make me cringe.

Which one is ad wrapped?

Or do you mean the decals?

I don’t think any of them are ad wrapped quite yet so he is probably referring to the livery.

Saw 8378 on an outbound MP this morning. Only caught a glimpse of the destination sign; it's not purple font but there is a big purple square next to "MAX PURPLE"

I guess that's the same as the CTrains

A series of photos of New CT NovaBUS CNG #8355 at the 31 Street Station by the University earlier today as the MAX Orange route on April 12, 2019.

Hmm, I'll have to pay more attention to the sign next time, and slow down the shutter speed. Plenty more chances in the future, I suspect!

The Luminator Spectrum signs require a very slow shutter speed for the signs to turn out at least somewhat decent.  I'm going to provide two photos to show you what the signs look like at different shutter speeds.

First is my photo of 8389 (taken in direct sunlight) at 1/800 of a sec.  As you can tell, half of the lines on both signs are not visible.

Secondly is a photo by "R. Meu" of 8358 (taken at night) at 1/125 of a sec.  Now looking at the photo you can definetely see that all lines in both destination signs are visible

Although I do not recomend lowering shutter speeds this low (1/125) during day hours, lowering it at least part of the way (closer to 1/500) could possibly give (slightly) better results.  I haven't tried it quite yet.

Note: Thanks to "R. Meu" for allowing me to use his photo in this particular circumstance.

Yeah, mine were at 1/320. Plenty of aperture "left" to close down, though, so the shutter speed can easily be reduced even more in day time...at least from this spot!

Boom, sign perfection as promised! This time on 8364. 1/22s at f/22, so it's rather soft.

Looking good!

I might have an opportunity to take one of these things out for a drive!
