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 the Citaro there are also partition walls, grab rails and special seating which absorb the energy in a collision or overturn - important protection for the passengers.
