Bus #304 has the Via-Nova screen even though it was not on; I got it on the 31 going back to Katonah.

4532 from FP has the Screens too I remember  seeing it while it did a run on the B6 

That’s 1 of the 45xx buses. I think another 45xx from FP has screens. I forget the bus. So far 4 from Fresh Pond.

3974 has the screens. I rode it on the B41 heading home from college on the evening of May 3rd, and saw the screens in action. Unfortunately, they were glitchy during my ride.

Ulmer Park’s 7169 has screens. I always get confused between Version 2 and 4. They look the same to me.

Version 2 has the: Next Stop " street" but there is a space between the two

Ex. "Next Stop: Av. Z and E.19 St."

 

Version 3 shows the Next  Street Stop with transfer with a bigger font and font is close to each other (minutes is also given to each stop). 

Ex. "Av. Z and E.19 St. Transfer to B4"

Basically Version 2 says

"Next stop...Bay Parkway and 86 Street"

"This stop is Bay Parkway and 86 Street"

 

Version 3 says

"Bay Parkway 86 street"

I'm assuming the 2014-2015 XD40s are getting Version 3. However I think the MTA Bus batch 7438-7482 has/will get version 2 like the new scheme XD40s.
