On damp days condensation forms on the inside of bus windows (compounded by more people taking the bus when it's raining). Rather than wiping a bit of window with a sleeve and wandering around with a filthy, wet sleeve all day, simply pull out your squeegee, unfold the handle, and clear a section so you can see your stop approaching.

Rather than a "traditional" T-shaped squeegee with handle, how about an Oyster card holder with a rubber edge? Solidly made, his would also protect the fairly fragile RFID antenna.

       Oyster is London’s travel smartcard. You can put your Travelcard or Bus Pass season ticket on it, add travel value (cash) to pay as you go or have a combination of both.

       Ah, that explains why I hadn't heard of it.

       And before you ask, no, it's not ITSO(see link)-compliant
