Others. It was a short day. I've noticed some of the programs changed.

New signs on 1697, possibly Twinvisions? Or the previous signs before reprogramming?

I gotta say... leaving that little bit of the MTA stripe showing under the new wrap looks pretty nifty. Obviously unintentional, but looks good nonetheless.

Wow, very NICE photos. 1697 definitely has a different sign and I like how "NICE BUS" is in bold font, not like the way "LI BUS" was on destination signs. And on that N24, it says Mitchel Field "CHAS". Whats "CHAS"?

Was that the (MTA)'s fault?

Nope, this program was made after the takeover. A fault made by N.I.C.E/Veolia.

 

theres signs on Meadowbrook Parkway that say Chas Lindberg Blvd as well

 

Ah, that explains that!

Not bad. But I wonder if NICE should drop the N designation and just use route numbers (i.e., 1, 2, 6, 6X, 15, etc.)

 

People in the area are too used to the prefixes. Also, being that it goes into other counties with bus prefixes, the "N" helps distinguish buses visually and when verbally communicating.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but other than the BxM4C I've not seen a single Bee-Line bus that uses a prefix on the sign. Of course, because Transit uses them, they can be distinguished pretty easily, paint scheme aside...

 

You do have a valid point though, in that there's no point changing since people are used to it.
