Prior to electronic signage, bus destination displays consistent of printed vinyl rolls that were operated by the driver, using a crank handle above the windscreen. Some buses were later retro-fitted with switches to allow for automated scrolling.

A reference list of each destination, and its corresponding position on the roll, was generally stuck above the windscreen.

Due to the expansion of Canberra, and its bus network, there were numerous versions printed as updated were required.
