Your Bus is Here

When buses queue up one behind the other at a stop, it’s quite difficult to read the bus-numbers. Folding Plate, as the name suggests, is a route indicator that pops out when the door of the bus opens. It’s positioned right above the door and is easy to spot and read. It even has LED settings to make the route number visible at night.

      Nice idea. However, there are times when there is limited space for a protruding number sign. There would also be times when the bus will run before it closes its doors – increasing the risk for the number plate to hit something.

      Anyway, another possible alternative to your solution is to just paint the numbers on the side of the bus.

      Overall, I think your team's presentation is suburb and nicely done. Keep up the good designs.

      My country have the same design, and the additional number is set in the back of miror. It's better than this which looks like extra trash.

      Sorry but this is an old idea. now on the numbers of buses are made of led ilumination. so the numbers can be seen from far away at day and night.. With this, there is unnecesary to put the numbers on the doors.. with the front bus number in led its enought..

      Well, you should take a look of this

      the similar facility has already existed
      for 3 or 4 years in Taiwan.

      and it’s much more simple than this case.
