  • Bus 978 featured an all-over-advertisement for IMB from May 2011, however the off-side of the bus was re-painted in September/October 2011 and the wrap was not re-applied. The rest of the wrap was removed in March 2013.
  • In August 2016, its Alcatel/STC Cannon flip-dot destination signs were replaced with Hanover LED equipment.
