Mercedes-Benz Citaro Bus

PBS Design Approval and Access

Tiger Spider was engaged by Mercedes-Benz Australia Pacific (MBAuP) to assist them in obtaining PBS Approval for the Citaro Bus since the Citaro is manufactured to the European overall width limit of 2.55 metres which is 0.05 metres larger than Australian prescriptive regulations permit. Tiger Spider first sought and was successful in gaining PBS Design Approval from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR). Furthermore, Tiger Spider assisted Mercedes-Benz in preparing information to the NHVR, public transport authorities and road managers to assist them in making an access determination with respect to the Citaro.
