GERMANY Almost eight months to the day after the delivery of the 1000th Euro 6 Mercedes-Benz Citaro, the 3,000th has gone to Medenbach Traffic GmbH of Weilburg. A Citaro LE, it’s part of an order for 20 similar buses and five articulated Citaro Gs.
Hartmut Schick, Head of Daimler Buses and CEO of EvoBus GmbH, said: “Both our new generation of vehicles and the fuel-efficient BlueEfficency engines meet our customers’ wishes for economy and state-of-the-art technology in ideal fashion. Transport operators wish to and need to operate regular services which are environmentally-friendly and make economic sense. With the Citaro Euro 6 modular systems we are able to cover virtually all customer requirements in this regard.”
Medenbach Traffic GmbH was originally founded as a haulage business in 1935. The long standing family business provides bus services in the districts of Limburg-Weilburg and Hochtaunuskreis although the new buses are for a network of services that will be launched in the Lahn-Dill district from December 14.
