Run Number Sets
These smaller signs are typically placed on the bus's dash, near the front door, facing
out the front window.
Some transit systems referred to these as "block numbers".

Shown here are some examples of run number sets from a selection of systems.
All images on this page have been drawn virtually perfect to scale, however, these
images are enlarged 2x compared to the scale drawing rollsigns on other pages.
