Segregated buses, sadly, were not only to be found in the United States, but, also, overseas.

In South Africa (and Ceylon, now Sri Lanka) there were separate buss fleets used for whites and non-whites.

If a bus was carrying white passenger only, a light would flash on the front as the bus approached a "halt" (bus stop); this, along with a sign, would announce that the bus only carried whites.

Also, buses for black African passengers would have signs that read: "NON WHITES ONLY".....

Here's a vintage Arpartheid-era photo of a double-decker in South Africa (the "YELLOW PAGES" bus ad seems a bit out of place, in that part of the world)......

Another (color) interesting photo of bus segregation in South Africa (note the sign on the rear of the bus)

Note the separate bus stops.......
