Consider the following categories of bus numbers:
- Number only - 11
- Number suffixed or prefixed with a character - 11E or E11
- Character only - A
(Question) How common are buses with letters/characters in Japanese? Do letters come before or after the number? Can the characters be English letters or hiragana/katakana/kanji?
I am familiar with
_番のバス where the blank is for the number of the bus.
(Question) How frozen is
番のバス? What happens if the blank is not a number. Do I change 番 if it is not a number and say
A字のバス? What about the combination cases for bus 11E or E11?
