Better bus signage for sight impaired

Tranzwatching transit tech in Melton, Victoria, Australia

A suburban area in outer Melbourne, Melton Shire, Victoria, has upgraded all its 400 bus stop signage to include an individual code number and the MetLink call centre number for information about the city's trams, trains and buses, including of course, info about the next services from that particular stop.  An unusual feature - the chest level signage has raised numerals and is also in braille to assist sight impaired people.
