Route numbering performs a critical function in identifying the purpose of a transport service and can be used to assist passengers in wayfinding around an extensive network.

TransitGraphics can provide advice on a common framework for the numbering of routes. These can be applied consistently, establish a meaning to route and bus stop numbering systems and help customers find their way around complex transport systems.

Some of the aspects we will consider are:

  • the need for route numbering
  • history of route numbering and how it has evolved
  • customers' understanding of route numbering
  • operational requirements
  • ways to implement it in network reviews.
