Color Boxes On Older Fleet Question

What was those color boxes that was on the older fleet buses? It is removed but it was 6 color rectangles with signs I remembered:

 

Adult

Child

Bypass

Paid

 

Something like that

 

Do anybody knows what they were used for.

Those were announciators on buses. They were used for people stalking what someones fare is! :lol: No they were used for if someone is surveying. They were useless.

and I bet the MTA is regreting that, those boxes were used to see who was paying the regular fare and who is not, this was a good tool for undercover cops, now they are doing that in staten island (under covers) these boxes would have been helpful to see if an adult is using a reduced fare or a student card

Drivers can do that already with the screen on their side of the farebox
