The Travego "Safety Edition" is now making driving safer than ever before. The Mercedes-Benz flagship bus was voted "Coach of the Year 2010" by an international panel at Busworld in Kortrijk, Belgium. Soon afterwards, Mercedes-Benz released a special edition model equipped with all current safety systems, including the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP®), the continuous braking limiter (DBL), the electronic braking system (EBS), the ABS anti-lock braking system, acceleration skid control (ASR), Brake Assist (BA), Lane Assistant (SPA), proximity control (ART), a rear-view camera, Active Brake Assist (ABA), a front collision guard (FCG), a rain/light sensor, Lictronic low-beam headlamps, fire alarm systems for the engine compartment and boot, and a toilet smoke alarm. Also on board is the eight-speed Mercedes PowerShift automated manual transmission with hydrodynamic retarder, which was developed for use in a bus for the first time. This transmission enhances both safety and driving comfort, as well as reducing fuel consumption.
