On-board bus announcements

I was on 398 today, and at one of the stop, and there was an electronic announcement which said "Please stand clear of the doors". I'm assuming this is pretty new since I'd never heard it before...???

Shame it was probably directed at me  :-[ :P :-X

Not new. But probably was directed at you if you were standing on the red floor.

At the moment isn't this only available for the driver to set off or is there some sort of sensors (is it just those cameras that can't count passengers).

Only the driver can activate it; I bet many drivers will have forgotten how to do it....
