At Opti-Luxx, we pride ourselves on developing industry-leading, high-quality LED lighting solutions for school buses and commercial vehicles—the brightest and best.

The latest innovation from Opti-Luxx is our LED Retroreflective Destination Sign for school buses. The development of our Destination Sign was in direct response to the requests from our OEM and other customer partners who desired improvements to the existing signage options available for school buses. To meet the need, Opti-Luxx engineers took a methodical approach to prototyping many iterations over several years and perfected a new design, ultimately releasing the best final product for the industry— truly the next evolutionary leap in backlit, reflective signage!
