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.
