Nyc Bus Stop Signs

Recommended Posts

A crude attempt at a bus stop sign, made by tracing a photo:

Pretty cool! Can you do the one that reflects overnight service? And if possible can you take any requests?

Here's another one with an express route:

Requests will be taken with the following restrictions:

 

-Max of 5 panels.

-Each panel has one service.

-Only standard, LTD, and express. No SBS, overnight, or school trippers.

-No non-MTA bus services on the sign (the green on white).

-You MUST SPECIFY routes and intersection.

 

If you want me to make an overnight, take a picture of one, preferably straight-on and I'll see what I can do.

You can use this photo as a guide for making an overnight bus sign (from Google search):

I'd like the following request.

 

S78 (regular service, blue background): Tottenville

S79 (overnight service, black background): Eltingville

S79 (Limited-Stop service, purple background): Staten Island Mall

S79A (regular service, blue background): Staten Island Mall

Express (express service, green background): Drop Off Only

 

Location: Midland Av/Hylan Bl

 

Looking forward to the sign. Thanks in advance!

Nice, but you made a mistake...the night service is for the S79, not the S78. Otherwise everything else looks ok.

 

@via the Express really doesn't matter as some signs say NYCT, so it's cool.

Yeah, I know some do, but hey if you're happy w/it, that's what matters.

@Amtrak... It's supposed to say "EXPRESS" not NYCT.

 

Why does "NYCT" "DROP OFF ONLY" seem very familiar? Maybe I'm thinking of a different sign.

Because both are used. I assumed LRG wanted the sign to say "EXPRESS" because that's what he wrote. I've seen both on Staten Island in particular when there are a lot of express buses that stop at one stop. I wish they went back to listing all of the express buses at one stop. :mad:

Recolored as my original signs used faded colors.

Can you resize it so I can use it as my avatar?

It's not very legible, but here you go:

Coneyislandav7: I can't make SBS, so I'll make it a LTD. Note that it'll be smaller text.

To make it fit, I decided to non-proportionally shrink the text rather than play with font sizes.

BTW, can either one of you take a request? I'd like it like this:

Surf Avenue & West 24th Street

 

Thanks in advance! :(
