Vehicles are displayed across various areas within Passenger apps and websites. 

Vehicles are displayed as a vehicle icon facing a specific direction if the SIRI supplier provides a bearing for a vehicle, otherwise they are displayed as circles. This could indicate the vehicle is static or Passenger aren't receiving a bearing on the vehicle from the SIRI supplier. 

Clicking on a vehicle will display additional information if it has been added via Passenger Cloud such as the features of the vehicle and occupancy status. This is often important for accessibility reasons.
