The best protection for passengers is still a driver who is fully concentrated. Which is why the driver's seat must be shielded from distractions and operation should be intuitive, with controls which are easy to reach. The Citaro sets new standards in this area, too.
Everything is in the right place here. Nothing should distract a Citaro driver from his or her work. This is what we've worked to achieve. The driver's seat position has been raised slightly to give better all-round vision ‒ the driver is now on eye-level with the passengers. In addition, through extending the front, legroom has been increased ‒ while improving collision protection at the same time, too. The change gives an optimal seat position on long working days.
