I was told some years ago that TfL bus routes must continue to show their destinations on blinds rather than dot-matrix as used by almost all other bus operators around the country. Apparently this is a requirement set by the Metropolitan Traffic Police - but what is the reason for it? Can any fellow member offer an answer? That said, I am a great fan of the traditional bus blinds, and am pleased that they are still used. They just seem a lot more clearer/easier to read - especially from a distance and in sunlight.
