Mensagem:  Here in Rio and Niteroi city there are the two systems:
The old one in wich you pull the (bus bell) cord and the bell/buzzer sounds.
The old ones it´s a buzzer sound and it buzz everytime the cord is pulled.
The new ones are less noisy (we may call it a bell); the new ones once pressed may display a "stop requested" sign in panels located along the bus and over the chairs along with one panel right up the driver.  Once the cord is pulled, the "stop requested" is lighted in all panels, until the exit door is opened.
There are "stop buttons" in some, and a mix of stop buttons along with the "cord" system, perhaps because they anticipate teens and little kids may push the buttons and cause them malfuntion (don´t work/get out of order).
In other states and cities all over the country you can find the cord-only system combined with the buzz.

Bus stop here is a bit similar to this one, only that more fancy/modern:
