In a social media post, Mercedes-parent Daimler said that the Romanian capital of Bucharest had ordered 500 Mercedes-Benz Citaro city buses in 2005. "Now, one has logged one million km....Even more impressive: The bus has had a single driver for the past 12 years!," the post read.

The Mercedes-Benz Citaro is a low-floor city bus available in different seating configurations. The bus' flexible handrail system and ergonomically shaped seats make it a comfortable commute option across Europe and parts of Asia.

The bus' almond-shaped headlamps give it a typical Mercedes look. It deploys the BlueEFFICIENCY Power drive system making it the first regular-service bus with Euro 6 standards. From safety point of view, the Citaro buses come with anti-lock braking system and other safety features which help in mastering critical driving situations.
