|Rollsigns from Oakville, ON
This set of mylar rollsigns have a print date of April of 1990, and they each
have 34 exposures. The front sign (left) was received damaged, as shown.

These signs have been drawn virtually perfect to scale. The side sign (left)
has been enlarged to 1 1/2 times that of the other signs on the website to
show detail. Their respective sign tags are shown below.
This mylar front route sign was designed

35 exposures, having added "102 Winston
Park", and "N" and "S" to 21 and 22.

|C.H. Norton operated the first bus system in Oakville in 1962, with only two routes. Their
franchise expired in 1972. In the 1970s, Gray Coach Lines intercity service operated through
Oakville, offering some local coverage while passing through the city. September 5, 1972
saw the inauguration of the Oakville Transit that still operates today.
To receive extra funding from the provincial government, and
from encouragement from the disabled community, Oakville and
its neighbouring system, Burlington Transit, introduced icons on
their rollsigns to represent destinations within their respective
cities. This set of mylar rollsigns are both dated February 14,
1996, each having 66 exposures. The side sign (right) was
obtained in "mint condition", having never been installed in a bus.
