Reading Transport MegaRears

A MegaRear is an advertising livery that covers the whole of the back of a bus, often with contravision parts over the windows. In the past these adverts have also been called SuperRears.

By contrast to a MegaRear:

  • A MegaPanel is a large square advertisement roughly the same size as a MegaRear, but applied to the side of a bus. Conventionally the advert is placed centrally, covers the whole height of the bus and contravision is used at window height to allow passengers to see out.
  • A MegaSide is an advertisement that covers one whole side of the bus including contravision parts for the windows
  • A ColourBus is a whole advertisement livery that covers most of the bus, it is often painted on, and may or may not involve putting contravision over the windows.

[The definitions of a MegaSide and MegaPanel above are not definitive, but have been adopted by this site until a specific definition becomes widely used by everyone.]
