The bus is one of the world's safest and most comfortable modes of transport. Innovations from Mercedes-Benz have made a decisive contribution to this – and make the OC 500 LE a pioneer on the road.
Traditionally, safety has always taken pride of place at Mercedes-Benz. All bus chassis are equipped as a matter of course with a highly-responsive, electronically-controlled braking system with disc brakes all-round, as well as with the anti-lock brake system (ABS) and the standard-fit Brake Assist function (BAS). It boosts braking force to a maximum in fractions of a second in an emergency braking situation, thus reducing braking distances. The ESP® Electronic Stability Program with acceleration skid control (ASR) helps the driver to master critical handling situations. Equipped with guardian angels all round your bus is safe on the road but in the city and in the country.
