Video system with DVD player and flat-screen monitors

The roof area above the driver and tour guide area has been completely redesigned and restyled to give it an open, inviting look, with enlarged and lockable compartments on the left and right. This new design necessitated the use of flat-screen monitors instead of the previously installed tube-type units for the video system in the new Travego. Optionally, the front monitor is available in electrically retractable version to give the passengers an even better view. Standard equipment also includes a DVD player.

Upon boarding the coach, passengers are immediately met by the “Mercedes-Benz” brand lettering which, like the “Travego” lettering, is to be found inside on the left and right above the driver’s and tour guide’s seats. Since one of the main aims is to make passengers on board the Travego feel at home, generous dimensions have been maintained, with an exterior width of 2.55 m, generous standing height of 2.10 m and, as a result, an airy and spacious feeling. Differences passengers will notice on board the new Travego include the modified service units beneath the air ducts, whose redesign results in a more integrated appearance. The control buttons, now including illuminated inductive switches for the reading lights and service call function, are now logically integrated right next to the reading lights. Each of the adjustable air outlets is controlled by a thumbwheel.

Another new feature is the lighting concept for the Travego passenger compartment, now centered around ceiling-mounted fluorescent tubes running alongside the luggage racks. The tubes have two light settings and are of particular benefit to coach operators as they have an extremely long service life. The discreet ambient lighting, also new, includes offset lighting for anti-glare illumination of the center aisle below seat level. Furthermore, passengers occupying the rearmost seat row in the new Travego enjoy a better view as the side windows no longer feature a rounded rear edge but, instead, extend back as far as the corner pillar.
