They have a wide range of scripts that are manually painted to the sides to indicate the main streets or avenues the route includes.
Styles vary from combi to combi, even in the same company, as I believe they hire different letterers for the job.
I'm working on a little project to make some of them into a font set called Combi Stylus & I created a flickr set to show my inspiration sources.
This one is my FontStruct version for the set & it needs a lot of kerning, but well...

My UC leans slightly to the left and my lc to the right; must be the graffiti influence from way back in the day.

Jenjes232's fontstruct (logo) got me interested on all the variations of the FS logo fontstruction. 
After checking many of the available versions (specially Pauldhunt's Structurosa) I thought it would be fun to clone Meek's logo and update it with the bricks available now (logo is numbered 96 & this clone is 218867, Structurosa is 7294). 
I originally liked Meek's x but ended up just using it as the asterisk and the c and s got slimmed down to match the actual FS logo design.
g and y came from Structurosa, which also influenced the e, x and k.
And from Jenjes232's FSion I took the v.
The rest just popped out while figuring out the possibilities.
I liked the process so much that while making the superscript numbers I thought of making FS Mini, a smaller variation.Clone%20of%20logo.%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0A%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F214753%22%3EJenjes232%27s%20fontstruct%20%28logo%29%3C%2Fa%3E%20got%20me%20interested%20on%20all%20the%20variations%20of%20the%20FS%20logo%20fontstruction.%20%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0AAfter%20checking%20many%20of%20the%20available%20versions%20%28specially%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F7294%22%3EPauldhunt%27s%20Structurosa%3C%2Fa%3E%29%20I%20thought%20it%20would%20be%20fun%20to%20clone%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F96%22%3EMeek%27s%20logo%3C%2Fa%3E%20and%20update%20it%20with%20the%20bricks%20available%20now%20%28logo%20is%20numbered%2096%20%26%20this%20clone%20is%20218867%2C%20Structurosa%20is%207294%29.%20%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0AI%20originally%20liked%20Meek%27s%20x%20but%20ended%20up%20just%20using%20it%20as%20the%20asterisk%20and%20the%20c%20and%20s%20got%20slimmed%20down%20to%20match%20the%20actual%20FS%20logo%20design.%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0Ag%20and%20y%20came%20from%20Structurosa%2C%20which%20also%20influenced%20the%20e%2C%20x%20and%20k.%0D%0AAnd%20from%20Jenjes232%27s%20FSion%20I%20took%20the%20v.%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0AThe%20rest%20just%20popped%20out%20while%20figuring%20out%20the%20possibilities.%3Cbr%2F%3E%3Cbr%2F%3E%0D%0AI%20liked%20the%20process%20so%20much%20that%20while%20making%20the%20superscript%20numbers%20I%20thought%20of%20making%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F219310%22%3EFS%20Mini%3C%2Fa%3E%2C%20a%20smaller%20variation.
