First City 75 into service with German operator

The revolutionary Sprintetr City 75 is set to come to the UK in the future

The first Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 75 has entered service with German operator Omnibusverkehr-Reisen Frank & Stöcke in Göppingen.

As the manufacturer intended when it launched the revolutionary 38-passenger City 75, the minibus in question is being used on a route that cannot be served by full-sized buses because of space limitations.

“Despite that, we want to offer passengers a fully-fledged regular-service bus with all the comfort that entails. The City 75 meets our requirements and is also very attractive in terms of design,” says Owner Manfred Frank.

A new rear axle is fitted to the City 75 that has 5,000kg of weight tolerance. GVW of the minibus is 6,800kg. It is due to come to the UK.
