One of the highlights of this year’s UITP World Congress and Exhibition was the launch of VDL’s new Citea flat-floor city bus. The bus is the first model in VDL’s new generation of public transport buses.

The Citea will replace VDL Bus & Coach’s SB 250 Jonckheer and the Diplomat models and is also clearly intended to be an addition to the existing product range. The new concept allows the bus to be harmonised with the specific national requirements of the carriers. For example, it is possible to fit a normal or an extra-wide entrance and exit door in order to comply with the various wishes of public transport companies.
