The tried and tested Citaro modular design

The tried and tested Citaro modular design

The secret to its success is, without a doubt, based on the tried and tested Citaro modular design. This allows it to cover the complete range of transport needs of local public transport in inner-city and inter-city bus services. We have a suitable product in our range for every requirement, and transport operators can benefit from a uniform modular system and parts commonality despite the various Citaro models in existence. This makes the Citaro a best-seller worldwide and a well-loved standard bearer for the brand's image.

Driven in almost every big city in Europe, it provides the backbone of many metropolitan bus lines around the world and transports passengers in Mexico, Japan and Abu Dhabi. When the Mercedes-Benz Citaro came on the scene, the world of regular-service buses was revolutionised. Since then it has steadily continued its triumphant march forward with well over 50,000 vehicles delivered and has been a standard bearer for years with assured popularity in city use.

Striking design, perceptible comfort, comprehensive safety, a superb environmental balance sheet, excellent quality and compelling economic efficiency make the Citaro the benchmark among regular-service buses for the public transport sector. In addition it offers an unbelievable range of variation which makes it the ideal vehicle for all the tasks required in urban regular-service and inter-city bus routes.

Mercedes-Benz has always played a pioneering role in the development of environmentally friendly, innovative drive system technologies. With BlueEFFICIENCY Power technology, a benchmark was set as a result of which the Citaro became the first regular-service bus in the world to meet the Euro VI standard. Production itself already focuses on the greatest possible environmental compatibility. The cathodic dip priming process is almost completely free of solvents. Since 2007, the Citaro has even been available with the "Blue Angel" environmental seal. And at the end of a successful life as an urban bus, its components are excellent candidates for recycling.

It's not just the Citaro itself that's impressive but also the many awards it's received. It was crowned with the European "Bus of the Year" award multiple times and has been the repeat winner since 1998 in its category of "Best Commercial Vehicle".

Like no other manufacturer, we at Mercedes-Benz stand for high quality which is also consistently exhibited in the Citaro. It is crafted in the most modern bus production plants. Each part is subjected to extensive tests and strict checks – for a long bus life and exemplary economy.
