Voith supplying Gillig's Pittsburgh transmissions

Posted on July 22, 2014

Voith Turbo Inc. will deliver 60 DIWA.5 automatic transmissions to Gillig this summer, which will be used in clean-diesel buses bound for the Port Authority of Allegheny County transit system in Pittsburgh.

Voith’s DIWA.5 transmission allows for very smooth gear shifts, which reduce wear and tear and increase driving comfort in city transit buses, according to the company. Additionally, its overdrive fourth gear optimizes fuel-friendly engine speeds in city traffic.
