The bus is one of the safest vehicles – in city traffic, too. Nevertheless sometimes it is not possible to avoid an accident.
Mercedes-Benz has ensured that the consequences of an accident are minimised as much as possible. For example, the Citaro hybrid's sidewall reinforcement makes a significant contribution to its high levels of passive safety.
In addition, the Citaro hybrid 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.
