School Bus Signwriting

Hi folks.

I have noticed a few private operators in my area have recently had signwriting added to their school buses i.e. windscreen and rear bootlid.
These operators are about for years with no names on their paintwork!
Just wondering is this a new regulation of some kind or just a coincidence?

Windscreen? On the glass? Surely that's problematic from a driver visibility viewpoint?

Buses are meant to have the operators details on them, primarily operator name an address.

Scheduled services are meant to have the operators details shown more clearly, primarily operator name and route number / destination.

Windscreen as in the name at the very top of the screen. I know the operator details are in small writing along the side bootlid on all buses.
Just wondering about the more extensive signwriting given that these are buses doing mostly local school runs

It may be a school bus contractual thing.
