OC Transpo has unlocked its caps. For exterior bus destination signs, that is.

As of April, destinations displayed on the LED signs above bus windshields began appearing in mixed case (upper and lower case) rather than all capital letters.

Pat Scrimgeour, director of transit customer systems and planning, confirmed in an email Wednesday that the new format would “improve legibility” and help riders read destinations more easily, “especially from a distance.”
