  1. Since I haven't found any good thread to put this in (as this pretty much applies to any vehicle with an Allison transmission), I'll start this thread here and hope somebody has an answer. Today I came across this document on the web: https://freightlinerads.azureedge.net/ShiftSelector2013.pdf It shows how to use the familiar keypad I've seen on many buses I've been on. In particular, I've noticed the so-called "5th Generation Electronic Controls", which has the high-res, dot-matrix graphical display, looks different from the one I've seen on vehicles in the GTA like GO Transit's latest D4500CTs and Enviro500s (and even retrofitted to its old coaches, such as this one below): https://1drv.ms/i/s!AgqCsfFShZgBidkZJejIlrCELE77CQ As you can see, despite the crappy resolution of my image, the typeface used to display the transmission speed looks different from the one in Allison's PDF document; while the latter shows crude-looking numbers, the ones I've seen use the beautiful-looking Arial font. I believe this could be attributed to one of Allison's OEMs, as quoted in the document: Is this so, and if it is, does anyone have further information about who made the shift selector seen in my image?
