What Is a Bus Roll?

A bus or tram roll is also called a scroll, blind, roll sign, curtain sign, or destination sign/blind. Originally, destination boards were made of wood and used on horse-drawn stagecoaches. But with the advent of the steam- and gas-powered engines, journeys were extended, which resulted in more destinations.

Hence, roll signs made by hand using a crude type of screen printing on linen offered greater ease and versatility to display destinations. Destinations were rotated by hand-turning a crank on the outside. There were also signs on the sides of the tram, and it was the conductor’s job to make sure the destinations were correctly displayed after each stop.

Modern destination signs

Since the 1980s, these vintage tram and bus rolls have been replaced with signs using electronic technology such as LCD or LED panels. They are now made with stronger materials such as Mylar or Tyvek and are manufactured in factories.

The original bus and tram rolls are now a part of history, but that look can still be yours. It’s easy to use our design tools to create attention-getting wall art of your favorite vacation spots or residences. But that’s just the start! You can choose any text that fits the space – such as inspiring or humorous quotes – and customize your design with the colors, font, and style to match your personality and purpose.
