Criteria of this thread:

There are multiple (at least 2) bus companies with bus stops satisfying the criteria:
* Stop X is named A by company M, and named B by company N
* Stop Y is named B by company M, and named A or C by company N
* All letters are not equal to each other

The existence of such naming can confuse passengers needing to take buses of multiple companies.

Here is an example in my region:
* The eastbound stop located west of St Michael's Roundabout is named Queens Road by morebus, and St Michael's Roundabout by Yellow Buses.
* The eastbound stop located east of St Michael's Roundabout is named St Michael's Roundabout by morebus, and St Michael's Church by Yellow Buses.
* These two stops are served by morebus routes m1, m2, 16, 20, and Yellow Buses 1, 3, 18, 33, 36, where 1 and m2; and 3 and m1 are direct competitors. Passengers can be easily confused if they need to alight at the former stop, but take a morebus instead of a Yellow Buses and watched the stop announcement. (here, only morebus has stop announcement on board, Yellow Buses doesn't have)
