The bus is one of the safest vehicles – even in city traffic. Nevertheless accidents cannot always be avoided.
Mercedes-Benz has ensured that the consequences of an accident are minimised as much as possible. For example, the Citaro’s sidewall reinforcement makes a significant contribution to its high passive safety.
In addition, the Citaro has partition walls, grab rails and special seating which absorb energy in an impact or if the vehicle overturns. This provides essential protection for the occupants.
