Ahh was too busy admiring the MAN. Hmm maybe should word that a bit different. Out of interest do you know what the pod is on the top of the MAN? Never seen a hybrid with anything other than aircon up there and that pod doesn't look like a/c if so it is an elaborate pod. If it is for batteries I would have thought it would make the bus very top heavy.

Judging by the leaves painted onto the bus (service #15), this must be Hydrogen powered, in order for the companies to promote their environmental capabilities?

@ajw373, the pod on the roof on the MAN is for the batteries because unlike American hybrid buses (from what I've seen), the diesel engine is relatively small and doesn't take all the rear compartment of the bus.

The engine is on the left rear side of the bus and seats are available on the right rear side. So other than the roof, there are no other empty space left for the batteries.

@IanCleverly, The Citaro with leaves painted on it, isn't a hydrogen bus, its a CNG version, and the paint scheme is indeed used by the Veolia-Transdev to promote the environmental capabilities.

RATP Agora with the wrong direction.
"Parc Zoologique" is on the oposite way.


Unfortunately such errors are frequently made, the worse is when a wrong line number is indicated or sometimes no one.

Wow, that is real bad. In my transit district, it happens, but not that frequently.

Which proves that among passengers nobody looks at what's indicated on the front of busses before to get in, because for example when I take a bus and notice such mistakes, I usually tell the driver, and each time I did it the driver changed the indication immediately and apologized for the mistake.

I do that too.

One time, in my transit district (Tampa, FL, US btw), one bus route that travels through one of the universities had an incorrect route number displayed in the LED signs. I happened to be driving that evening, but saw the bus right in front of me. When I realized that the driver had the wrong route displayed, I pulled up alongside the bus at a stoplight and rolled my window down. The driver then saw me trying to get her attention and she opened the door of the bus. I then told her that her bus was displaying the wrong route number and she laughed, saying "Oh my gosh, thank you!" She immediately changed the display and closed the door, shortly driving away thereafter.

In Zaragoza such errors don't occur, but I've heard annoucements of links with non-existing lines.

A such thing is not possible in Paris because buses don't announce the link with other lines.
Execpted some buses on line 21 with the RER. A weird thing because in Central Paris people don't made change between bus and metro/RER.
It is only in the periphery that people do it.

RATP Stif Lively.

I think they should've just painted the entire thing grey instead of leaving an odd white gap in between.

Yes this livery is way better than the latest 100% ratp livery which is basically....nearly no paint....

And for the white strip, I guess its because it is one of the official colours of the STIF (Grey and White)...
But at the same time it goes against the reason for which the RATP decided to leave the side panels white and the lower in grey, which was to speed up repairs as the repair crews do not have to paint the panels...

Also recently (the last few weeks) the RATP updated the FONT on buses equipped with SPEC LED display signs.
This type of LED signs is used on Citelis LINE buses and the first batch of Citelis 12 (the later ones have Hannover display). The FONT was left unchanged by the RATP and as a result, the letters were way too big and the destination couldn't fit into 1 or 2 lines...

Now the font was changed to a more smaller size and is similar to the font used on Stations signs/maps etc.... so that the destination is displayed in one line without moving

Here are some pictures where you can compare between the old and new font:

When do they plan to open T5? I've seen some photos and it looked finished. Moreover, what are the reasons to build it as the tyre-trams line?
