Spanish term or phrase: resaltes en forma de casquillo
Description of the inside of a bus.

Las barras pasamanos horizontales y elevadas disponen de unos resaltes en forma de casquillo en color llamativo y enfrente de las plazas reservadas para personas con movilidad reducida.

I imagine that it is a type of 'grip' attached to the bar. This text describes the buses in Madrid so if you have been on one lately...

protuberances, projections, ridges . . .
Overhead bars with ridges or projections shaped like bushings, to give standing passengers a better grip on the bar.

(Haven't been to Madrid in many years, no place to park :o)
