Why were the destination boards (front, side & rear) on this TP1873 completely blank instead of e.g. 000?
Spotted at 4:50 pm 12 Dec 2018, William St northbound before St Georges Tce.
The driver was in uniform and the bus was otherwise empty.

Sometimes after a restart the boards blank out and don't reset until the driver manually keys in a service destination, or they have randomly dropped out in service. It can happen.

The other possibility is that the code for 000 Not in Service may be 001, and the driver has keyed in 000 by accident and caused the boards to blank out.
