THE crest of the City of Bristol, which is painted on all vehicles owned by Bristol Omnibus Co., Ltd., may shortly disappear. The company have pointed out that their vehicles operate in a wide area outside .Bristol, and it is confusing
to members of the public. There is nothing in the crest, they say, to associate the bus with Bristol, whereas in the city itself the crest gives the impression that the vehicles are operated by the Corporation and not by the Corporation and the Bristol Omnibus Co., Ltd., jointly.
The finance and general purposes committee of the Corporation have been approached with a view to making the change, but they deferred their decision for a month. One councillor said the public had the impression that the Corporation ran the buses, and if anything went wrong the council got the blame. If the coat-of-arms came off it would help to clarify the situation.
