This standard applies to the distribution, content, and dimensions of the markings on rolling stock, terminals, and bus stations. This is GOST 18857-75. It contains charts which show the form and design of the markings, and a section on technical requirements which include language (i.e., both the national and the Russian languages must be used); material (e.g., plastic, plexiglass, galvanized steel, etc.); size of the letters, etc. The appendices indicate the distribution of signs on the autobus. This is followed by GOST 18858-73, which is concerned with stop signs for passenger transport vehicles. The section on distribution and content provides a description of stopping points (e.g., initial, inter, and final) in the city and inter- city transportation lines of both buses and taxis.
