Everything is optimally protected in the Citaro – and that naturally includes the driver as well. This is ensured by the driver protection door, which protects the driver from unexpected attacks. Depending on the intended deployment of the vehicle and the degree of protection desired, there are four modular constructions available.
The door is now hinged at the rear and opens at the front. This means the driver can get directly and really quickly from the main front door to his/her workstation and vice versa. In the event of an attack the driver protection door secures the escape possibilities for the driver.
